Neilson departs

Wednesday 20 February 2002

Grimsby have parted company with Alan Neilson by mutual consent and his short-term contract at Blundell Park has been terminated.

The former Whites defender joined The Mariners as a stop gap to cover for the injury to John McDermott, but now that he is fit the former Fulham defender has become surplus to requirements.

During his spell in Cleethorpes he started eight league games and two cup matches and was unfortunate to put through his own net as Town lost 1-0 in their FA Cup third round replay at York City.
