Grimsby Town youth team started their EFL North East Youth Alliance 2019-20 season with a 4-1 away defeat to Doncaster Rovers at Cantley Park.


Neil Woods’s side went a goal down in the first minute as Doncaster came out the traps quickly to make it 1-0.

And the home side doubled their lead inside the opening 10 minutes, before making it 3-0 15 minutes later.

Town, who had a disastrous start, began to get a foothold in the game for the remainder of the first half, but struggled to grab a goal.

But the young Mariners made three changes at the break and continued to plug away as they searched for a way back into the game.

And they got on the scoresheet as Lennon Stead smashed home from close-range, after some neat play from Town.

But Doncaster responded well to conceding and re-established their three-goal lead as they scored a fourth.

Both sides subsequently had multiple goalscoring opportunities, but the game finished 4-1.

The young Mariners are back in action against Bradford City at Cheapside on Saturday (11am).
