I was only 6 years old at the time of our admission into the league so didn’t really know the significance of that day, especially our very first home game.

Grimsby at home was my very first match. My dad & I stood at the part of the ground where those odd looking grey “things” would occupy that part of the ground many years later. I don’t remember too much about the game, but remember all the fans in & around me singing oggy, oggy, oggy & enjoying a carnival atmosphere.

A few weeks ago I had a dream where the DW was closed for repairs so we had to go back to Springfield Park to play our home games. I remember turning around to my dad & said I know it’s not the best of grounds, but it’s kinda good to be back. It is son, it sure is my dad replied.
