Young Mariners Suffer Defeat Against Burton

Grimsby hosted Burton Albion on Saturday morning at Bradley.

Town started well with some early possession and threatening in behind, but it was Burton who opened the scoring on 7 minutes when an individual error saw the opposition forward steal the ball and finish well from close range.

Town then controlled possession, without creating a great deal of chances.

Burton doubled their lead when another defensive mix-up saw a deflection beat the keeper.

Town continued to press forward but created only half chances and at the other end, Dennis made two great saves to keep Town in it.

A disappointing result for the Mariners after last weeks opening day win.

Next up for Town in Bolton in the Youth Alliance Cup.
