COLLINS WAITS ON DEAL AT MARINERS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Becky Grey

GRIMSBY Town man­ager Mar­cus Big­not and de­fender Danny Collins ad­mit the player’s fu­ture at the club is still up in the air.

Collins says he has en­joyed his time with the Mariners this term as it has given him the chance to play ev­ery week.

Collins, 36, said: “When I joined last sum­mer, the gaffer (Paul Hurst) said he wanted me here next sea­son as well, but I’ve not signed any­thing as such. There are one or two oth­ers in the same boat.

“I’ll just play as many games as I can be­tween now and the end of the sea­son and take it from there.”

Big­not, who be­came boss in Novem­ber af­ter Hurst left for Shrewsbury, said: “From day one, Danny knew where he stands with me but, as John (di­rec­tor John Fenty) has al­ready gone on record as say­ing, it’s very hard to ne­go­ti­ate dur­ing the sea­son.

“As a man­ager, do I want to lose Danny Collins or (cen­tre-back) Shaun Pearson? Ab­so­lutely not, but it comes down to fi­nances.”

IN LIMBO: Danny Collins
