Former Gillingham and Barnet manager Mark Stimson has confirmed to BBC Radio Humberside that he has applied for the managerial vacancy at Grimsby Town.

Grimsby have been without a manager since sacking Neil Woods last month.

Stimson said: "I've put my CV in for the job and I've had someone speak to the chairman on my behalf."

Stimson has been out of work since being sacked as Barnet manager on New Year's Day. He left the Bees in the League Two relegation zone.

Stimson continued: "I think potentially they can get back into the league, and it's something I'm desperate to do for myself personally, so I need a club with the same ambitions."

The 43-year-old has experience of managing in the Conference, having taken charge of both Grays Athletic and Stevenage. He lead Grays to the play-offs in 2006.

After leaving Stevenage, Stimson managed Gillingham before having his contract terminated by mutual consent following their relegation from League One in 2010.

He has won the FA Trophy three times, twice with Grays and once with Stevenage, and also led Gillingham to victory in the 2009 League Two play-off final at Wembley.

Former York City manager Martin Foyle also continues to be strongly linked with the vacancy.

Foyle is currently out of work, having left Bristol Rovers along with Dave Penney on Monday.
