Grimsby Town v ECFC
- Saturday, 11th January, 1969
- Grimsby Town (away),
- Won 2-1
City were always the more superior side in this game and could easily have doubled their score had they shown a little more steadiness in front of goal.
Grimsby scored first through Keith Cock burn but Johnny Kirkham equalised with a terrific shot, and Dave Pleat got the winner shortly before the end.
Team-Shearing; Crawford, Blain; New man, Sharples (Kirkham), Harvey; Corr, Mitten, Curtis, Balson, Pleat.
