The Daniels played well on a wet night in front of 268 fans, but lost 3-2 after conceding a last-gasp goal to Siriki Dembele.

Stamford, in their first outing of the summer, opened the scoring early on through Jake Duffy who netted direct from a free kick.

Sam Jones soon equalised for Grimsby and the same player shot the Mariners in front from the penalty spot soon into the second period.
