    Sorry to quibble over so minor a point, but we haven’t quite held Football League status since 1892. We became founder members of Division Two that year, but spent the 1910-11 season in the Midland League, possibly as a punishment for introducing salmon pink shirts.

    Can’t argue with the rest, though – we are definitely a bit rubbish at the moment.

    I ummed and ahhed over whether to go with 1892 or 1910 as the date for this, Pete, before opting for 1892 in the belief that someone would complain if I put 1910!

    It’s not the Reynolds Arena anymore. It’s the Darlington Arena, or The Balfour Webnet Darlington Arena to the sponsors. Reynolds is about as welcome here as Gary Glitter. If the stadium was still named after him, it’d be burned down.

    Still, top of the league!

    For me, the key talking point about this game was how bloody cold it was in the away end (though Ricky’s goal briefly warmed me up). There were also the bits of roof that fell into the front of Grimsby’s main stand jusrt before the game, an incident which seems indicative of morale there at the moment.

    Were you there, by the way, or do you watch the game of the week online somewhere? If it’s the latter, could you send an address – I’m about to move abroad and would like to be able to watch our games occasionally.

    Cheers, Joe
