Club Honours - We're Well In The Bling

Club Honours - We're Well In The Bling


Puffs out your chests, the Mighty Mariners have a heritage that puts the rivals in our region to shame. As well as two FA Cup semi finals against Wolves and Arsenal, then coming 5th in the top flight we have tipped more scales than a trawler.

The mariners have won what is now the Championship twice as well as the lower Leagues 4 times. Ok so we are not a Moneybags Manchester outfit but Grimbarians have pride, passion and more than a healthy potion of Heritage.

The one in the picture incidentally is the Conference one. But in all seriousness we are awash with shiny shiny Bling!
