It wasn’t to be for Grimsby Borough today, as they lost 2-4 to Ollerton Town. A fantastic win for Ollerton as the last defeat for Grimsby came in September, writes Mitchell Radford.
It was 16 minutes in when Ollerton took the lead, Gavin King with his 20th of the season. It wasn’t until the 37th minute when Grimsby levelled, as ex Cleethorpes Town striker Marc Cooper tapped home. Gavin King got his and Ollerton’s second five minutes after half-time, a loose back pass from Borough allowed for King to nip in and slot past the Borough keeper.
The game was level once more in the 58th minute, Cooper with his second goal of the game. With 13 minutes of the game left, Ollerton took the lead for a third time. This time it was Lewis Bingham who fired in after a scramble at a corner. The game was made safe six minutes from time as Ollerton scored their 4th goal. Sean Dickinson curled into the bottom right corner.
Daniel Barrett Grimsby Borough manager gave us his views on the game, “Sometimes you have to hold your hands up and say we got hammered…. Today was that day. Credit to Ollerton they were by far the better team and thoroughly deserved the win.
“We’ve come off the pitch with a lot of people say how are they in the bottom 4 or 5… I have come off asking how we are in the top 4 or 5. Our lads were very poor and I’d be a liar if I was to say it hadn’t been coming.
“We have undone a lot of hard work in the last two weeks but you get what you deserve in the game of football and that has happened.
“We go into a very tough period and it will be a good test of our character.”
