‘Wow’, ‘Fantastic’ – These fans react as Grimsby make significant decision



League Two strugglers Grimsby Town have confirmed the appointment of Ian Holloway as their new boss after sacking Michael Jolley last month.

The Mariners are currently sitting in 21st place in the fourth-tier, just four points ahead of the relegation zone and have not won a game since the end of September.

Therefore, bringing in a manager of Holloway’s calibre is considered a real coup, with the 56-year-old having won promotion to the Premier League with Blackpool and Crystal Palace in the past.

The news was announced on Grimsby’s official site this afternoon and they also confirmed that the new chief has acquired shares in the club and will attend full board meetings moving forward.
