Grimsby defender Jason Crowe will decide whether to accept the club's offer of a new deal within a fortnight.

"There's a contract there for me but I need to finalise a few things first. We should know that in a couple of weeks," the 26-year-old told the club website.
"My wife and myself are settled in the area but I am an ambitious person.
"I want to go places and hopefully Grimsby will be ambitious too. We need to build upon the squad we've got. We need to start again next season."
