Travel guide: Grimsby Town

16 February 2017

Supporters who are travelling to Blundell Park on Saturday to watch us in action against Grimsby Town (3.00pm kick-off) can read our in-depth travel guide...


Blundell Park is the home of Grimsby Town and has a capacity of 9,052. After being built in 1899, it has been renovated on numerous occasions.  

Despite its small capacity inside the current stadium, the record attendance is 31,651 in a match against Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1937.


Fans are again encouraged to make the journey with the Stags Supporters’ Association, who will be departing from One Call Stadium on the day of the game.    

The SSA are offering discount prices for the trip and these are as follows: 

Members: £10 
Non-members: £15    

There’ll be a competition for the golden goal on board, as well as a raffle with the chance to win Stags’ merchandise.    

The coach will be departing the One Call Stadium car park at 10.45am on the morning of the game. 

To book your space, please call their booking hotline on 07967 689597.


If you’re making the journey to Grimsby by car, take the A60 to the A1 and onto Blyth Road, where you’ll then have to take the M18 and M180 to North Lincolnshire. 

From there, follow the A180 to Imperial Avenue in Cleethorpes before being guided by nearby signs to the stadium.


Only one change at Worksop is required for fans making their way to Cleethorpes railway station, which is a 15-minute walk from the ground.    

When you’ve arrived, walk down Station Road, High Street, Grimsby Road and Neville Street and you will reach your destination.


Inside Blundell Park, away fans are treated to their own bar called Scotties. It opens at 1:30pm, serves two pinters and the first fan through the door with a piece of Stags' memorabilia gets the first drink for free. The bar is of a fair size and has seating, plus it shows live sport on the television. 

Please note that the Blundell Hotel is for home fans only. 


The exact driving distance between One Call Stadium and Blundell Park is 83.6 miles, taking one hour and 40 minutes, approximately.

We have been allocated 1,005 tickets in the Osmond Corner Stand for the fixture, as well as five pairs of wheelchair user and carer tickets.    

Supporters will also be able to purchase tickets on the day of the game from the Grimsby Town ticket office, however prices will increase by £2 after 1.30pm.

There is no car parking available at the ground, but there is some street parking around the area for fans to use. 

As you drive along the A180, you will pass McDonalds and there should be car parking spaces available on the side of that road, however supporters are advised to arrive as early as possible as these tend to get taken quickly. 

Please note, parking restrictions are in place on various roads around the ground.


The last meeting between the two sides was in September 2016 when Grimsby Town ran out 1-0 winners at One Call Stadium. 

Stags created a number of early chances in the match and could easily have been ahead in just the sixth minute when striker Danny Rose saw his curling effort from the edge of the box beaten away by Grimsby stopper James McKeown. 

Former midfielder Mitchell Rose and striker Matt Green then had efforts blocked from the edge of the area before Grimsby had their first attempt on ten minutes when Shaun Pearson headed over from just a few yards out. 

Stags then had an attempt cleared off the line as Danny Rose directed a header goalwards but Grimsby broke away and ended up scoring the only goal of the game. 

Striker Omar Bogle was sent through one-on-one in the box but the ball ran loose and as ‘keeper Scott Shearer came to claim, he brought down Bogle, leading the referee to point to the spot. 

The now departed frontman picked himself up and sent Shearer the wrong way to score what turned out to be the decisive goal. 

Stags tried to hit back straight away and Green saw a rasping shot from the edge of the box saved well by McKeown, before the top scorer miscued a shot wide. 

After the break, it was one-way traffic once more as Stags did their best to get back on level terms, but both Green and Mitch Rose missed good chances from headed opportunities. 

Stags kept pressing forward throughout the final 15 minutes but the Mariners stood strong and held on to the three points.
