Nickname The Mariners
Stadium Blundell Park
Time at Club:
Grimsby Town have appointed Russell Slade as their manager following the sacking of Marcus Bignot after just five months. More to follow.
Bignot left his post at non-league side Solihull Moors in order to take up the position at League Two outfit Grimsby in November, replacing Paul Hurst who had departed for Shrewsbury Town. However, despite a 3-1 victory over Blackpool in their last game.
Bignot is well-known at non-league level for his work at the helm of Moors, with whom he led up to the National League last season (for the first time in the club’s history) as National League North champions. The 42-year-old, who also hoisted the Birmingham Senior Cup last term, had been in charge of the Midlands club for six years, before making the move to the Mariners.
Between 2010 and 2016 Grimsby spent sox straight seasons trapped in the Conference, until Paul Hurst led the club up into the Football League after beating Forest Green Rovers 3-1 in the play-off final.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Grimsby Town collect wins versus Yeovil Town, Cambridge United and Blackpool while suffering adverse results at Barnet, Cheltenham Town, Doncaster Rovers and Portsmouth. Draws against Plymouth Argyle, Accrington Stanley and Crawley Town has seen them show mid-table form at best.
