PAUL Groves and Graham Rodger will put pen to paper at a press conference at Blundell Park tomorrow morning at 9.30am. The news has been released from the club after protracted negotiations.

It is not clear yet what created the delay but that will probably be revealed tomorrow.

This is good news for the club and the fans. Groves is popular as a player and as manager. When he took over towards the end of last season he saved the Mariners from relegation.

The acceptance of the offers made to them both indicates that a satisfactory arrangement was reached regarding the "war chest" which was probably the main sticking point.

So the news is good all round and now the season can really start at Blundell Park and Groves will be expected to be making some announcements about players very soon!

We will keep you informed as news breaks.
