Wybers Wood youngsters enjoy the Blundell Park experience
MORE than 100 children from Wybers Wood Academy sampled the ‘Our First Match’ experience at Blundell Park.
The youngsters – many of who were at their first ever Grimsby Town game – crammed into the Main Stand on Saturday to watch the Mariners’ clash with Kidderminster Harriers.
And, despite watching their hometown club slip to defeat, the children and their parents had a whale of a time – meeting Mighty Mariner, sitting in the dug-outs, and having their photo taken.
A voucher will also enable the Wybers youngsters to watch this weekend’s match against Cambridge United for free, with an adult able to accompany them for £10.

‘Our First Match’ is a joint-initiative between the Grimsby Telegraph and the Mariners, aimed at giving more schoolchildren the opportunity to watch and support their local club.
Dozens of youngsters from Welholme Primary School kicked off the scheme at last month’s match against AFC Telford United (see below).
And next up to enjoy the VIP treatment are the Year 1 children from Signhills Infant Academy in Cleethorpes, who will watch Town take on Cambridge.

May we take this opportunity to thank you for enabling our children to go along to Grimsby Town and be part of the match-day experience resulting from the joint initiative between the Telegraph and Grimsby Town Football Club.
Our children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and many of them have indicated they intend to return in the future.
A particular highlight for our children was to be able to meet Liam Hearn and have their photograph taken with him on the pitch.
We feel it is important that children support their local football team and have an appreciation of the professionalism required by someone within sport – and hope that they will view him as a positive role model.
