Venue : Crusader Park (third field on a hill behind clubhouse)
Referee: David Nelson (a member of their club but was the referee when we beat them at home)
Weather: Warm with lots of sun. The field was a little dry (see below)
However we did have celebs: this is Alan Lee one of the first Grimsby Gentlemen coaches with his daughter (not sure about her name but will find out).
Other notables at the game were Evans, Atkinson, and Wilson in the foreground (all former players) and Lord (keeping track of his son in the background)
I cannot write much about the game as I got to the game with about 10 minutes to play (was at the Flag Championship: see previous post) and it did not look like a comeback like the last time we played this team this year. They seemed to be a little younger, the weather was cooler, the same ref but he was at home and we were a little less strong (fewer subs)

This was the first game Chris played with Grimsby (I think) as he was on a trip from England and played very well although he did remark on the heat and hard ground.
Chris looked so good in our new jerseys they gave him the Crusader's superman cape after the game.
They also made one of their players wear and drink with a Darth Vader mask on.
I am sure glad we don't make players do silly things at our club.
