Highly-rated Grimsby Borough made a huge statement of intent with a 10-0 win over plucky, new- look FC Bolsover-and after his side’s loss, manager Matt Chatfield was less than impress with the result and performance.
The Wilderness Boys were three up at the break in front of a super crowd of 132, and added a further seven after the interval. Marc Copper bagged a hat trick, with Callum Lovitt, Josh Morrall, James Wroot, Danny Trott, Jack Debnam, Caine Winfarrah and Peter Win also opening their campaign accounts. Five of the goals came in the last ten minutes.
“Totally unacceptable and they have been told this. Credit to Grimsby they were a very good outfit with some class players, and should be up there come end of the season, however we should have tried to be hard to beat after four but some lads took it upon themselves to be individual and try doing something else which opened us up for the goals to go in, safe to say changed will be made ready for Saturdays trip.”
