Cod Almighty Programme ‘Takeover’ To Mark 20th Anniversary

The Mariner makes a welcome return this afternoon for the visit of Woking to Blundell Park. To commemorate their 20th anniversary, Cod Almighty take over a number of our regular features and articles, putting their own spin on today’s edition.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cod Almighty, Grimsby Town’s independent online fanzine, Devon Diary puts some alternative questions to Town’s number 30, Scott Burgess to see what exactly makes him tick.

Grimbarians present their ever-popular ‘One of our Own’, focusing this week on Graham Holness. If there’s anyone who probably should be known as Mr Grimsby Town, it’s Graham. He has been watching the Mariners for the last 53 years and regularly makes impromptu visits to Blundell Park during the week to say hello to the club staff, players and coaches. In November 2015, Graham was diagnosed with bowel cancer and given just five years to live however, following successful surgery and radiotherapy, he has recently rung the bell to indicate the end of his treatment! We look forward to welcoming Graham this afternoon.

Our Mini Mariners feature returns, giving our younger readers plenty to do to keep them occupied prior to kick-off, from a word search to spot the difference and a sit down with Scott Burgess who gives us his match day rituals. Our regular features Ancient Mariners and Legends return, with Mariners Trust Vice-Chair Chris Parker remembering one of the club’s most iconic strikers in Matt Tees.
