Georges Santos Trial

GRIMSBY Town are giving a trial to French midfielder Georges Santos. The former Sheffield United man was released by the South Yorkshire club in the summer after his involvement in the infamous 'Battle of Bramall Lane' against West Brom when the match was abandoned.

Santos has returned to the UK after an unsuccessful search during the summer for a club in his native France, after having been released by the Blades at the end of last season.

Town boss Paul Groves said: "We've obviously played against him before and he's versatile and can play in one or two positions.

"He's a powerful lad, has played in the First Division and his credentials aren't bad. He's here to train and try and impress us."
