Mariners out of FA trophy

Follows 3-2 defeat at Gateshead

Grimsby Town went out of the FA Trophy after extra time last night, a late header from Gateshead enough to put them through.

Town went behind twice but clawed it back to 2-2 and penalties looked likely with neither side able to get a winner before 90 minutes.

The Mariners had to finish the game with ten men after Lenell John-Lewis went off injured, and Gateshead sub Jon Shaw scored for the hosts to send them into the next round.

Mariners boss Paul Hurst said it took a while for his side to get going.
