On behalf of myself and my family, I would like to apologise to the fans, Paul Hurst, the board of Grimsby Town and all players and staff at the club for my actions on Sunday.
Having a child is a special occasion and with it being my first, we were wanting to celebrate safely with family. My actions came across as selfish and I am aware of all the sacrifices made in order to protect the NHS and save lives. I made a genuine mistake and will remind myself to ensure I know and respect the Government guidelines so an incident like this does not repeat itself.
I am a young man who is now destined to be a father and I want to be a role model to her and all football fans across the world. I know I have let everyone down and I will endeavour to right my wrongs. Following an investigation by the club, the matter has been dealt with internally.
I once again issue my sincere apologies.
