The Mariners Trust remains unequivocally opposed to the Checkatrade Trophy in its current form.

As many will know, a supporter match is being hosted next Tuesday by the Internet Mariners to raise awareness of their opposition to the competition. To ensure the game goes ahead safely we have made a donation to cover the costs of the match officials, ground hire and medical cover.

The Trust has sponsored the Internet Mariners for the last four seasons and they do an excellent job as ambassadors for our supporter base whenever they visit other clubs to play matches. The Trust would like to wish those involved in the boycott game all the very best for their match and hope it is a success.
