Grimsby Town Football Club is a professional football club based in the town of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, England. The club was founded in 1878 and currently plays in the National League, the fifth tier of the English football league system.

Over the years, Grimsby Town has developed a reputation for playing an attractive, attacking style of football. The team typically employs a possession-based game, focusing on short, quick passing and movement off the ball. Under the guidance of manager Paul Hurst, who has returned to the club for a second spell, Grimsby Town has continued to play a high-pressing, attacking style, with an emphasis on playing with width and getting the ball into the box early.

Despite their attractive style of play, Grimsby Town has struggled in recent seasons, having suffered relegation from the English Football League in 2019. However, with a new manager at the helm and a young, hungry squad, Grimsby Town will be looking to bounce back and regain their place in the top tiers of English football.
