FIFA 18 Verdict: Grimsby Town (A)

Ooooh, the little tinker. It didn’t ‘arf go and get our hopes up last week. New gaffer, new chapter was our FIFA 18 Verdict’s, er, verdict. It didn’t turn out that way though, did it.

Grimsby Town 0-2 Stevenage (Martin 15, Newton 59)

He was relatively late to the scene; first rocking up at Broadhall Way during the 1995-6 season. But that's mainly because he was too young to pledge allegiance before then.
