PART 30: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17

The Emirates FA Cup-Semi Final-Saturday 21st April 2018
WATFORD (O.Ighalo) 1 def. Grimsby Town 0
Wembley Stadium
Crowd: 82,934

Ty Stedman-"It's hard to come up with just a few words to describe the feeling at the moment. Pure heartbreak for the fact that we played our arses off and came away with nothing but there's no disappointment when you take away the result. We put in a brilliant shift and showed why we thought we could go all the way.

Watford to their credit were also hoping to break a long-standing final drought and they got the goal on half-time that really hurt us but the chances we had in the second half gave us all sorts of hope. It just didn't work out in the end. But in the end, we were never supposed to be here, we've proven ourselves as a rising side in the English game and I couldn't be prouder.

That moment after the game where we thanked our supporters was a special moment for all of us. We're going to the Championship, we just played in front of 80 thousand plus at Wembley and about 40000 of those were our own fans. This was for Grimsby."


EFL League One-Matchday 45-Wednesday 25th April 2018
Rotherham United 0 drew. Grimsby Town 0
New York Stadium
Crowd: 7,243

Ty Stedman-"We don't like using excuses but with the madness of Sunday still fresh in our minds and the fact that we are finishing 2nd despite our final two games, I'm not too disappointed with only taking a point. Rotherham are the champions and we beat them and drew them in two games this season. We'll take that into next season."


EFL League One-Matchday 46-Saturday 28th April 2018
GRIMSBY TOWN (S.Davies, B.Davies & M.McCallum-OG) 3 def. Plymouth Argyle 0
Blundell Park
Crowd: 8,955

Ty Stedman-"I tried to fire the boys up for this game today. Despite having 2nd place wrapped up, we wanted to send our fans off with a final day win. It's no hidden fact that we've struggled to find goals as of late and struggled to win games but today everything just worked."


Promotion to the EFL Championship:

Ty Stedman-"We weren't given much hope of finishing in the playoff spots let alone sealing promotion with a month of the season remaining. As manager I'd be expected to say that I knew we'd do it all along but even I'm surprised how much this team has achieved.

Our FA Cup run was the club's best in eighty odd years and now we're back in the Championship a decade or so after falling out of it. This club's been through some hard times but we've got genuine belief of finding success in the Championship. Avoiding relegation would be our priority next season."
