BIG SHOW TO SALUTE UN­CLE DIS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

LENELL John-Lewis didn’t mind be­ing spot­ted in an­other team’s shirt in mid­week.

The 28-year-old Shrews­bury striker was back at his old side Grimsby as he fea­tured in a ben­e­fit game for veteran mid­fielder Craig Dis­ley, 36, who helped the Mariners re­turn to the Foot­ball League in 2015-16 but was re­leased last sum­mer.

John-Lewis, who left Grimsby to join New­port in 2015, said: “Dis de­served it – he’s a top guy.

“That’s why so many peo­ple were there and how many play­ers turned up from all over the coun­try.

“I call him Un­cle Dis and he’s a top man.”
