Issue 51 – June 1993

So much of what happened under Kevin Keegan could almost have been scripted, nowhere more so than a magical night in Grimsby.

I don’t think the words ‘…a magical night in Grimsby’ will be used too often but so it was on that fateful day in 1993. David Kelly sealing the 2-0 win that rubber-stamped promotion to the new fangled ‘Premier League’….I wonder if that will change football much?!!

In 2011 Grimsby are struggling to match Gateshead in the Conference and Newcastle United are….well what are we? We all know that Newcastle United have the potential to be pretty much anything they aspire to be, as for a reality check just look at the Conference table and see how many of those clubs we have played against in living memory on a level playing field (same division)!
