The following is an interview of Glenn Cowlam undertaken by The Fishy.

When did you first start supporting the Mariners, and what was your first game?

I regularly started going in the 1977/78 season. First game I remember going to was actually an away game at Bournemouth in 1973 (father took us all for a weekend away). I believe I went to Blundell Park before this but can't remember any specific games.

Who is the best player you ever saw wearing a Grimsby Town shirt?

My childhood hero was Bobby Cumming, but I think Futcher was probably the most talented (probably because I to play in defence when I do actually play)

If there is one game you were allowed to go back in time and watch what would it be and why?

Town 2 Everton 1, Mickey Brolley's 2 goals and absolutely brilliant atmosphere (also 20k plus in Blundell Park)

What are your favourite and least favourite away grounds?

Favourite - Villa Park
Least Favourite - Belle Vue Doncaster

What, in your opinion, are GTFC's best and worst seasons since you have been supporting them?

Best year = 78/9 (3rd Division Championship year)
Worst = Mick Lyons relegation year (can't remember the actual year it was that bad)

What is the most eventful day you have ever had in the course of following the Mariners?

Middlesbrough 1 Town 2 in the FA Cup 1988? I went to college in Middlesbrough, so me & my mates parked in a car park I said was safe. My wife went shopping & met us back at the cars after the game. Unfortunately she arrived before us & sat in the car waiting, and then a large group of Boro fans waited around the car for us to come back (The car said Grimsby motors on it). Lesley was scared witless, & when we all got back they set about us. Fortunately for me my mates told me to get in the car to try & calm Lesley down so I wasn't set on. Thankfully none of my mates were hurt, but I think it's really sad that this was the first thing I thought of as a "memorable" day.
The best day has to be the first visit to the Twin Towers of Wembley.

Who is the greatest ever GTFC manager?

In terms of achievement in my memory it has to be Buckley.

How many games a season do you get to now, and what do you do while Town are playing games that you can't get to?

Probably 6-10 at home, and something similar away depending how many are near to Leeds

Name your all-time starting eleven since you have been watching Town?


Do your children support the Mariners?

Not yet but shes only 2 1/4.
