PART 1: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17

EFL League Two-Matchday 1-Saturday August 6th 2016
Grimsby Town (O.Bogle) 1 drew. Barnet F.C (J.Akinde) 1
Blundell Park
Crowd: 7,934

Ty Stedman-"I think nerves got the best of us today. We started very slowly. Big crowd, back in the Football League, an opponent that went through what we're going through now just last year. 

They showed quality and got the lead 20 minutes in but we pegged one back with a third of the game to go and just couldn't force the issue really. Omar's goal was quality and he'll be useful this season but with chances like the one Trent Buhagiar missed on debut, it just wasn't our day."

Omar Bogle scored an equaliser to seal a point for the Mariners.

Ben Davies on being named Captain-"I'm only new to the club so I wasn't expecting to be handed the armband but as one of the older heads in the side I can really use the leadership to guide the team round the park. It's quite an honour to be the captain but a lot of credit has to go to Craig Disley as well who is still the club captain and still a vital part of the squad despite being in the reserves today."


EFL Cup Round 1-Tuesday 9th August 2016
Notts County 0 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (D.Comley) 1
Meadow Lane
Crowd: 10,932

Ty Stedman-"Wow! What do you say about that game. Cup football is always an emotional ride whether good or bad. Notts County pushed us at times and James McKeown in goals was brilliant tonight for us. But what else can I say. Brandon Comley scoring a scrappy 86th minute winner and that's how we go through. It wasn't pretty but we got the job done."


EFL League Two-Matchday 2-Saturday 13th August 2016
Mansfield Town (M.Green) 1 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (O.Bogle, L.Rose & B.Davies-PEN) 3
Field Mill
Crowd: 6,734

Ty Stedman-"Just like the Barnet game, we started slowly and they took that early momentum and created something. 1-0 down after a quarter of an hour away from home, it wasn't looking great but we scrambled. Omar scored another quality goal and then we just overpowered them in the second half.

Front to back we were the better side in the 2nd half and we really put on a team display that I knew we were capable of. Liam's goal was well taken and of course it was nice to see Ben slot home his late penalty. Mansfield are a decent opposition so it's nice to brush the monkey off the shoulder and pick up our first three points of the season."


EFL League Two-Matchday 3-Saturday 20th August 2016
HARTLEPOOL (L.Alessandra & N.Thomas) 2 def. Grimsby Town 0
Victoria Park
Crowd: 7,209

Ty Stedman-"Without question it was a frustrating day at the office. We changed things up at the back and unfortunately our defence had a horror moment and dropped off for their first goal. Their second goal was well worked and there wasn't too much we could have done.

Ultimately it was tougher to take a loss because for the better part I thought we bossed the chances. We hit the post twice and really pressured them when the game was in the balance at 1-0. Once they got their 2nd it was a long road back but we're definitely not too concerned. We'll go back to the drawing board and work on some structure for the next game."
