The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

GRIMSBY boss Mar­cus Big­not ad­mit­ted it was a coup to bring in sum­mer trans­fer tar­get Gavin Gun­ning six months early, and ex­pects the de­fender to make a big im­pact.

The 25-year-old former Dundee United player has joined the Mariners from Greenock Morton, and Big­not re­vealed he had not ex­pected to get him un­til the end of the cam­paign.

“You don’t turn down the chance to get some­one like Gavin Gun­ning in the build­ing,” said Big­not.

“Gavin was a player we had cer­tainly iden­ti­fied for the sum­mer. We like to look a win­dow ahead. For us, to get him in now, we are ab­so­lutely de­lighted.”
