Five-star Iron destroy Mariners
Braintree Town 5 Grimsby Town 0
BRAINTREE Town got their Blue Square Premier season up and running with a five-star performance against Grimsby Town at Cressing Road last night.
Only a few years ago the chance of these two sides ever meeting would seem a pipe-dream for most Iron fans. But such has been the progression of the Essex side – and the demise of the Mariners – they now compete on the same playing field. And last night Iron were supreme.
Two goals just before the break from Kenny Davis and Sean Marks put the home side in control.
And they never let up in the second, Marks, Andy Yiadom and Brad Quinton adding three more.

The home side were superb, while the 300 or so Mariners’ fans were left to curse their side from the stands, many leaving before the end.
