Grimsby Town Cup archives – Johnstone’s Paint Trophy or Full/Associate Memebers Cup

Town have an affinity with the Football League`s second Cup competition, now known as the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy has been known as both the Associated and Full members Cup.


It is a competition in which we have reached the final twice, losing to MK Dons 0-2 in 2007/08 and of course the victorious one where Bournemouth, aka the Cherries were pipped on the golden goal rule in the first part of the 97/98 double season.


We were unable to defend the Trophy as our unique double put us back into the championship and we all know how snobby they are.
