Borough chief happy with greater strength in depth
GRIMSBY Borough joint boss Nigel Fanthorpe goes into the festive period in upbeat mood after a great week for the club.
Borough fought out a 3-2 win against Yorkshire Amateur in their last game – and also strengthened their squad with the signing of two players of good calibre.
Current Grimsby Town youth goalkeeper Liam Higton and ex-Mariner Jammal Shahin both played well on their debuts – and Fanthorpe will be hoping for more of the same tomorrow – provided the game against Hallam gets the green light.
Hallam's ground is situated on the edge of the Peak District and features a sloping pitch, leaving it particularly susceptible to the elements.

Fanthorpe said: "We have beaten Hallam twice this season – in the league and cup – but they played well on both occasions.
"They drew with Teversal last week and may be tricky opponents.
"Our two new signings have settled in well, they have been spot-on.
"Liam played very well in goal. He has a long kick, his distribution is good and he is very agile.
"Jammal came on and did well. He is a bit rusty as he has not played for a few weeks, but he has quality on the ball.
"He created the winning goal with some trickery and a good cross from the wing.
"Those two have certainly strengthened our squad".
Borough's win against Yorkshire Amateur at the Bradley Community Stadium was the perfect tonic for Fanthorpe's men ahead of the festive period.
He said: "We got out of the traps well and got up and at 'em.
"Yorkshire Amateur are a good side, they played well.
"You have got to make sure you score when you are on top, and we did that".
After tomorrow's match against Hallam, Borough are then in action against local rivals Cleethorpes Town on Thursday, December 27.
