In terrible weather conditions, Grimsby Town Women’s FC were knocked out of the Lincs FA County Cup by Lincoln City, a team three leagues above the Mariners. However, the 1-6 result wasn’t as bad as it may seem. Returning skipper, Kim Brown, encapsulates the fantastic spirit shown last weekend.
“I thought we were absolutely outstanding today”, said Brown.
“To go 1-0 up and keep a team of their quality out for as long as we did is something for us to be extremely proud of. Towards the end, their fitness levels compared to ours just showed but as a team, we can’t fault our performance one bit. I am so proud of every single one of this group.”
