GTFC fan Neil Jackson was lucky enough to win this fantastic signed 2018 home shirt. He has very kindly offered to raffle it with all proceeds going to the Disabled Supporters Club.
The Disabled Supporters Club is very close to Neil’s heart as he used to travel with them with his dad in the late 80s & early 90s, so he knows first hand that the work they do ensuring our Disabled fans can attend as many games as possible is essential to a lot of people.
If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning, simply make a donation to via our website HERE. It is just £1 and you can enter as many times as you like!
Neil hopes to raise at least £50, so please dig deep and be generous.
A winner will be drawn at random on 23rd February.
We were delighted to receive this letter from CARE yesterday, following our collection for the food bank before Christmas.
A huge Thank you to everyone who supported this!
Since launching the survey just 2 weeks ago, we have had an amazing response with over 500 replies online and many more completed in the bars around the ground. In the initial week, we saw over 480 responses come in and it has naturally now tailed off to just one or two responses per day.
The Trust recognise that there is a serious need for a clear direction for the future and this was always the main aim of the survey. The fans are clearly telling us via social media that they are in need of this sooner rather than later. We have therefore made the decision to bring the closing date of the survey forward to Sunday, 11th February 2018.
Until then, you can still complete online HERE or by emailing us at email@example.com. We have also made the form available HERE so you can print it if you would prefer – then just pop it in an envelope and post it to the Trust at Blundell Park or pop it into the ticket office.
We still want as many responses as possible. There will be a lot of work to do analysing the responses and some important decisions made on what happens next with the Trust.
This really is your chance to tell us what you want and how you feel. Please, if you have not already done so, complete your survey today!
Due to a fundamental disagreement regarding the future direction of the Mariners Trust, Paul Savage has resigned both as Chair and from the Trust board with immediate effect. Vice Chair, Alan Rutter, will take up the position of Chair in the interim.The Mariners Trust would like to thank Paul for all of his hard work during his time as a board member and wish him well for the future.
The Board of The Mariners Trust is happy to clarify that following his input at Wednesday’s meeting of the Board of Grimsby Town F.C. regarding the views of the fan base, as communicated to The Trust about the current situation at Grimsby Town F.C, Jon Wood confirmed that there was a consensus reached before he contributed fully to the discussion that culminated in the issue of the statement by the Board later that day giving his full support to the final draft.
The members of the Mariners Trust board will be meeting this Saturday, 3rd February 2018.
The agenda can be found HERE.
The Mariners Trust is well aware of the groundswell of discontent around the recent run of form and the management of Russell Slade and Paul Wilkinson. This sentiment is shared by the majority of fans and members we have spoken to, and indeed the Trust Board.
The Mariners Trust Rep Jon Wood was at the Board Meeting yesterday. After a discussion with us we formed the view that we should represent the views of the fans and Jon articulated their concerns to the rest of the board in the strongest possible terms.
Despite this, after a long debate and taking into account all factors, the rest of the board reached the outcome as detailed in the club’s statement.
We now move on, respect the decision, and will do everything possible to help turn around the rest of the season.
With another four or five wins required to guarantee safety, we would urge supporters to get behind the players on the pitch and do their bit to ensure we remain in League 2 for next season

The Mariners Trust has today launched its supporter survey to help define the way in which the Trust will grow in the future. Anyone can complete the survey, it is not restricted to just Trust members, and we would encourage all GTFC supporters to complete it and have their say.
The survey will be open until 25 February. All entrants who leave a name will be entered into a draw to win a club shop voucher.
The survey can be completed at –> MarinersTrustSurvey2018
Paper copies will be available to complete at future home games.
The survey results will help the Trust board decide whether it will further poll its members to help decide the future of certain issues.
