Back-to-back play-off defeats for Grimsby Borough have maybe been a blessing in disguise as they have managed to recruit some serious footballers, raiding local rivals Cleethorpes Town for Peter Winn and Marc Cooper notably.
Joint manager Daniel Barrett feels his side are ready to go come next Saturday, “I am very happy with how we have recruited in the summer and very happy with how the club has backed us after last season.
“We have identified our weaknesses and strengthened in the right areas. We have some very good competition for places all over the park. I am looking forward to a very important season for this football club.”
