Cockerill in McMenemy’s on Saturday

We are looking forward to welcoming back a very special guest for our game against Tranmere Rovers on Saturday.

Local lad John Cockerill made over 100 appearances for the Mariners between 1988 and 1992 and was part a member of the Alan Buckley teams which gained successive promotions. Cockers remained part of the Grimsby Town set-up after his retirement, holding the position of Community Coach, Youth Coach, Reserve Team Manager, Caretaker Manager and Assistant Manager when the Mariners enjoyed a historic double during the 1997-98 season.

The former midfielder will be in McMenemy’s before Saturday’s game alongside our matchday host Dave Smith where he will take part in a Q&A and discuss some of his favourite Town memories with the Mariners. There will also be opportunities for hospitality guests to meet and greet the former Town star.
