Grimsby Away.
 
Hope we're not having a last minute ticket fiasco like we did for the Southend game.
Thought tickets were to go on sale today?

Aren’t they available from Grimsby’s site though? So nothing to do with our ticketing dept?

If I could have booked via the Grimsby site, I would have. No on line tickets for the Away end.

Tickets everywhere :)

Just spotted you can now choose your seat for the Dagenham game from the stadium plan. Better than the process for the Woking game where you're allocated a seat but can keep changing it until you get one you want.

Except that this does not work , yet again. The option to purchase a ticket is there . You can select the number then it tells you to choose price band which does not work and you cannot go any further. I went on the Grimsby site and got a concession ticket , no problem .

Les,
Your on line purchasing works perfectly. At least for me. Ticket printed and looking forward to another trip to Blundell Park.

Ditto....a local(ish) one for me. opted for e-sms ticket and it was sent through to my mobile.

Just purchased a couple. Much easier downloading them to mobile- saves the faff of going to the club shop.

Les, or anyone else, what's the parking situation like at Blundell Park? Probably won't get there until 7.30ish - is there anywhere close by?

There plenty of street parking (no resident permit areas anywhere) but by 7.30 you probably won't get very close as the side streets fill up fairly quickly.

I usually try to get to the ground an hour before kick-off and sometimes it's a job getting somewhere fairly near, although I can usually get somewhere within about a 5-10 minute walk.

Cheers les, not sure how many will make the trip after Eastleigh and Southend in quick succession but I we have a car full :D

Anyone know the best place to get a drink and something to eat prior to the game, within walking distance of the ground.

[QUOTE=Poethlyn;2511428]Anyone know the best place to get a drink and something to eat prior to the game, within walking distance of the ground.[/QUOTE]

There are no pub as such really close to the ground.

There is The Blundell Park Hotel opposite the ground but as the name suggest this is more of a Hotel with a bar rather than a pub and it does get quite busy.

Your best bet would be to have a few in Cleethorpes High Street/Market Place first were there are plenty of boozers including a Wetherspoons and a few places for food too.

If you have time for a sit down meal, then Steels Corner House in The Market Place is best (Their Jumbo Haddock, Chips and Mushy Peas is legendary) or if you only have time for a takeaway then Ernie Becketts across the road from Steels is your best bet.

There is also a McDonalds right next to the ground if you prefer that muck.

Cleethorpes High Street is about a 15-20 minute walk from the ground.

Hope you enjoy the day, but not the result.

Re: Grimsby Away.
 
I remember my last visit to Blundell Park in early 1989. A freezing day but warmed up pretty quick when we got attacked a few minutes from the ground by a lovely bunch of locals who used the bricks from a house that was being built to launch at us.

Got the car attacked on the way out after the game. The poor lad driving was devastated as they kicked the doors in

A rather interesting place is Cleethorpes.Maybe its calmed down in the last 30 years !! Were you there that day Les ?

Alls well that ends well though. We won 1-0 with Jon 'Animal' Bowden scoring our winner !!

Probably was as I was going regularly back then. Can't say that I remember the game though, there aren't many 1-0 home defeats that stick in the memory.

Nice 1 Les!!

First trip to Blundell Park. Another ground to tick off.

First went to Blundell Park in March 1973.
A superb Billy Ashcroft volley saw us win 1-0.
It was a long journey in those days but the result made it memorable.
Drove home that evening and stopped in Warrington for a couple of pints and watched Muhammad Ali lose the first of his three fights against Ken Norton.
All trivia I know, but a day I’ll never forget !
