Grimsby's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Clive Mendonca has been voted Grimsby's all-time cult hero by the club's fans.

Mendonca won with 52% of the vote, ahead of fellow Grimsby legends John McDermott and Ivano Bonetti.

CLIVE MENDONCA: 52%

Grimsby goalscorer great always was a threat round the opposing goal, great man too.

Michael Yarborough

Always gave 110% every game!!!
Steve Jennings

The greatest striker I've ever seen at Blundell Park and was a guaranteed 20-goal a season striker. In his first season away from us he scored a hat-trick for Charlton in the play-off final getting them promoted to the Premier League.
Chris Law

JOHN McDERMOTT: 40%

Signed for the club at 16 and is still here now after 20 years. A true professional.
Michael Yarborough

He is the club's leading record appearance holder with over 500. He is going to start his 19th season at Grimsby this year. A great unsung hero at right back. One of the best right backs outside the Premiership in his prime and a loyal player. Can still remember Macca's quality goals coming from left back playing a 1-2 then driving it across the goalkeeper. Used to have lightning pace too and no winger ever got past him.
Ryan Collins

Fantastic long-time Grimsby player.
Steve Jennings

Our all time record appearance holder with over 500 games. He is a living legend who has shown incredible loyalty and ability over the past 15 years.
Chris Law

To vote for John McDermott text McDERMOTT to 81111.

IVANO BONETTI: 8%

I remember chanting 'Long live Ivano! Down with Laws' at Scunthorpe boss and our ex-boss Brian Laws. We loved to taunt him after he lobbed a plate of chicken at our 1995/1996 fans fave Ivano Bonetti after a bust up in the changing rooms.
Susie

Fans favourite in 95/96. Signed for Town after fans raised 50,000 transfer fee. Repaid us with some classy performances before a bust-up with manager Brian laws led to his exit to Tranmere.
Mike Lee

To vote for Ivano Bonetti text BONETTI to 81111.
