Grimsby Town: Club Profile
Grim by name etc.; the Mariners’ 2010 relegation to the Conference meant our first meeting had to wait until they came back up in 2016. It could’ve waited a little longer too; our inaugural encounter with Grimsby Town ending in a bit of a hiding for us. In going down to the Conference, meanwhile, they became only the fourth side ever to play in each of the top five divisions of English football.
Players For Us... and Them
Away Supporters' Stand:
Osmond Stand Corner
Facilities for Disabled Fans:
For travelling supporters with disabilities, there is car parking available on Harrington Street behind the main stand. The stadium includes 44 spaces for wheelchairs, although these are home and away combined - and there is limited cover with helpers sitting behind.
For more information, contact Lisa Piggott on 01472 605050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
For travelling supporters, you might find that you're best served by Scotties - a bar that's actually located inside the stadium for away fans' use. Otherwise, there's no shortage of places in Cleethorpes.
Travel Information – Distance: 156 miles
If you look at a map of the UK, you might find that you could probably draw a straight line from Stevenage up north to Grimsby. But when it comes to going between the two, the UK road network is less direct. That's not to say that it's a faff, however, as we'll now explain for your benefit.
From Stevenage, head north on the A1(M) and A1 for more than 92 miles; a path that takes you away from the east coast slightly. Don't worry though, for we shall be correcting that with our next step once we reach Newark-on-Trent. On the north-eastern edge of the town, exit for the A46.
Take the first option at the roundabout after leaving the A1 and once again after passing over the bridge - though there will be a filter lane. Head along the A46 and remain on this course until you get to Lincoln. Here, you'll link up with the A15; join this heading in a northbound direction.
Keep on the A15 until you reach the M180. At this point, take the third exit at the roundabout for the Grimsby-bound carriageway. After 6.6 miles, remain on the A180 for another 13 miles until you reach Grimsby. Keep following the A180 through the town until you reach a McDonalds.
The ground is in behind here on the left.
Blundell Park has no car parking at the ground, which leaves you facing the prospect of having to find on-street parking. One option is to go towards Cleethorpes and try the side streets down there. But do keep an eye out for any local restrictions.
Services to: DONCASTER (for STEVENAGE)
The nearest station to Blundell Park is Cleethorpes - a mere one mile down the road. Leave the station via the access road, which will bring you out by No.1 Pub. From here, turn right onto Station Road and then turn left straight away for Prince's Road. This will take you down to Isaac's Hill Roundabout.
At the roundabout, turn right onto the A180 Grimsby Road and just continue along this road until you reach McDonalds and the stadium itself.
