Defender joins the Mariners
The Mariners have taken former Arsenal, Southend and Barnet defender Nicky Nicolau on trial.

Nicolau has recently been playing in Cyprus but has return to England to play with the Mariners.

Barnes in Team of the Week
Town Keeper has made it in to the first Team of the Week of this season with his performance in the goalless draw with Rochdale.

This is a good start for Barnes who was Town`s player of the year last season, hopefully more good displays from Barnes will help the Mariners keep plenty of clean sheets.

Bolland suffers injury blow
Paul Bolland is set to be out for up to 3 months following a visit to the surgeon.

The Mariners physio, Dave Moore told the official site: We originally thought that he would be out for a few days after limping off against Oldham, but he came back to training and just couldn’t get through it.

‘We sent him for a scan and it showed knee ligament damage.

‘He’s had a second scan and he could be out for around 12 weeks, depending on how he responds to treatment.’
