After reaching the FA Cup quarter finals for the first time in 84 years after a remarkable run which had seen the Mariners beat opposition from all of the leagues above them, including the Premier League’s Southampton in the last 16, Grimsby met top-flight Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex stadium yesterday (Sunday).

A travelling contingent of more than 4,000 Mariners fans headed to the south coast to watch their team sadly fall to a 5-0 defeat, with goals from Deniz Undav, two from 18-year-old Evan Ferguson, Solly March and Kaoru Mitoma.

Around Louth, Mariners fans packed out various pubs and bars in and around the town to watch the coverage live on BBC1, and our roving photographer captured the atmosphere as fans cheered on Grimsby from our town’s hostelries.
