About Football in the Community
Grimsby Town Football in the Community was originally formed in 1986. The programme is currently managed by ex-Grimsby Town player, assistant manager and manager Graham Rodger. Our programme is constantly moving forward to become a well established, progressive and self supporting scheme that reaches out to all areas of the communities within the North East Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire area.
Background into Football in the Community
Grimsby Town Football in the Community plays a key role within the local society in developing the game through our programme.
The Football in the Community scheme delivers a wide range of sessions, courses and programmes, all designed to involve the community as a whole to the culture of the game.
