OPINION: Great to see Welholme youngsters at first Grimsby Town match
By Lee Jones, Deputy Sports Editor
WHAT a fantastic sight at Blundell Park on Saturday.
No, not the Mariners battling to a 1-0 victory over Telford and staying three points clear at the top of the Conference – although that was pretty satisfying.
But, for me, dozens of youngsters from Welholme Primary School getting the opportunity to enjoy their first ever Grimsby Town match really was the icing on the cake.

The children were the first to experience the 'Our First Match' experience as part of a new initiative launched by the Grimsby Telegraph and the Mariners.
And the 84 pupils from the school had a whale of a time, roaring their local team to another important win as part of a bumper 4,462 crowd.
Let's hope a few of the Welholme youngsters have been bitten by the 'Mariners bug', and come back for more in the future.
