Best Wishes and Thank You

Kenneth HolmesGrimsby Borough F.C. Chairman Kenneth Holmes announced his retirement, at the end of the 2006 / 07 season but will remain in the post until a new chairman can be appointed at the clubs Annual General Meeting scheduled for July 2007.

Ken was appointed chairman of Borough before the clubs first competitive season in August 2003 and has chaired the club through its first difficult but rewarding four seasons. During this time the club has overcome many difficulties both on and off the field, which would probably have persuaded a less determined chairman to call it a day. However Ken’s determination to ensure Borough became a strong club, ensured he kept the committee and playing staff focussed on the initial objective of the club, which was to ensure that Borough represented the North East Lincolnshire area at the highest level of football possible, thus giving the undoubtedly talented local footballers an opportunity to represent their home town within the non-league pyramid.

During Ken’s time as chairman he has seen the club finish in a promotion place no less than three times gaining promotion from the Lincolnshire football League in to the Abacus Lighting Central Midlands league in his first season as Chairman. However disappointment followed as finishing second to AFC Barnsley in the Abacus Lighting Central Midlands League Vipond Fire Protection Premier Division in his second season as chairman, highlighted Borough’s poor playing facilities and unfortunately Borough could not take up this promotion due to the lack of a suitable ground available to Borough in the area. This disappointment was not taken lightly by the chairman who instigated a search for a suitable home for Borough determined that should the opportunity arise again Borough could take advantage of the promotion and make their first important steps on to the national league system. The search for a ground with such facilities continued for two years under his leadership, with several possible venues being identified and rejected for various reasons nevertheless despite several disappointments along the way in his last year as chairman the club achieved an opportunity for another promotion and a permanent home. Thus ensuring that Ken’s retirement in Luxemburg can begin with the knowledge that his successor in the role will have a hard act to follow, having presided over the growth of the club from one to two teams three promotion opportunities and a significant opportunity for the “Wilderness Boys” to set down some roots at their own facility.

Ken will be missed at Grimsby Borough by all who have come in to contact with him  but I am sure all will wish him a long and happy retirement.

Hatfield Main are Champions

Goals from Michael King, Lee Stephenson and Nathan Ireland gave Borough a 3-2 win against Bolsover Town to end the season with a nine game winning run, which was unfortunately not enough to take the title from Hatfield Main who finished their season with a 3-1 home win against Sandiacre Town ensuring they finish three points clear of second place Borough at the top of the table. Bentley Colliery finished their season with a 3-0 win at home to Louth United to complete the top three. Final table......

Borough take the season to the last match

Goals from Rick Creer, Michael King and Lee Stephenson gave Borough  a 3-1 win and all three points in a close and very well contested fixture against a strong Pinxton team. The three points have both  secured Borough’s second top two finish in three seasons, as neither of the chasing teams Bentley Colliery and Forest Town can catch the wilderness boys, whilst ensuring the title will go to the wire as Borough can go level on points with Hatfield Main if they take all three points in their last game of the season against Bolsover Town but it must be said that Hatfield should achieve the point they need to make the title a certainty when they entertain bottom of the table Sandiacre Town in their last game of the season.
