Who Could Be The Next Manager Of Grimsby Town

We may get some clues before a market is created when we look back at previous Grimsby appointments and the odds on offer. The following managers were all quoted when a previous managerial change took place at Grimsby in the autumn of 2023.  

Danny Cowley - 6/1

Image: rex features

Londoner Danny Cowley built his managerial reputation in charge of Lincoln City. He did wonders with Imps winning the National League in the 2016-2017 season; this secured Football League 2 status. In his second season in League 2, Lincoln was crowned champions after only losing 7 games all season. 

Because of this, he was headhunted by Huddersfield Town, who were looking to return to the EPL after being relegated in 2019. Cowley signed a three year contract in September of that year but only lasted one season. From there it was south to Portsmouth who were playing their football in League 1, he couldn't recreate his Lincoln accomplishments on the south coast and was sacked in January 2023. 

Recent vacancies at Aberdeen, Tranmere Rovers and Oxford United have all featured Danny Cowley in the bookmaker's betting list. 

Phil Parkinson - 6/1

Phil Parkinson is a renowned football manager known for his tactical prowess and ability to motivate his team. He has managed several clubs, including Bolton Wanderers and Bradford City, leading them to promotion and success. Parkinson's managerial career is defined by his dedication to the game and his ability to adapt to different playing styles.

Graham Alexander - 6/1

Image: skysports

Graham Alexander who has managed Fleetwood Town, Scunthorpe United and Salford City has headed the betting before for recent vacant managerial positions, so if nothing else the bookmakers fancy his chances for several positions including Grimsby Town

Gary Bowyer - 8/1

Image: bbc

Timing may have been a feature when Bowyer was quoted in the next Grimsby Town betting as he was available having left Dundee in 2023. 

Leam Richardson - 8/1

Image: skysports

After starting his managerial career at Accrington Stanley, Leam Richardson joined Wigan Athletic  to work under Paul Cook. When Cook left for another position, Richardson stayed on as Caretaker boss before being appointed permanently in April 2021. In the 2021/22 season, Wigan flourished under his management style, and they won the League One Championship by two points from Rotherham United. Richardson was named Manager of the Season for League One. The following year, in the Championship, the club struggled, and Richardson was sacked with the club in the relegation zone.

Neil Redfearn - 10/1

Neil Harris - 10/1

Image: skysports

With Neil Harris, you know the style of play he will bring to the club; the former Millwall, Cardiff and Gillingham boss was quoted at just 5/1 for the Ipswich job in 2021 and has been linked with several of the vacant positions in October 2023 in Leagues One and Two

Steve Cotterill - 10/1

Image: skysports

Steve Cotterill is an experienced football manager, recognised for his work across multiple English clubs. Notable for his tenure at clubs like Bristol City and Birmingham City, Cotterill has built a reputation for resilient, well-drilled sides. His managerial approach reflects a combination of tactical acumen and understanding of player psychology. His commitment to the game is demonstrated in his hands-on approach to management.

Simon Grayson

Image: skysports

Simon Grayson has now managed 9 clubs predominantly in the north of England. The Yorkshireman has won 4 promotions with Blackpool, Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, and Preston North End, 3 of those came via the playoffs. His longest spell in charge of any of the 9 was with Preston North End who he managed for 235 games. Over the years his time at clubs have become shorter with him lasting less than a season in his last 4 positions at Sunderland, Bradford, Blackpool (for a second time) and Fleetwood Town. He is currently with Indian Super League club Bengaluru FC who he joined in June 2022. 

Sam Ricketts

Image: rex features

After a near 500 game playing career Sam Ricketts moved into management with National League side Wrexham in May 2018. He did well with the Welsh side who were competing for promotion before he jumped ship to manage Shrewsbury Town in the December of that year. Two very poor seasons with finishing positions of 18th and 15th were followed by The Shrews battling relegation in the 2020-21 season, after a winless run and with the club in 23rd place Ricketts was sacked in November 2020. It remains to be seen if he will return to football management. 

Ian Evatt

Image: bolton_wonderers

The central defender took his first job in football management as caretaker boss of Chesterfield United at the back end of the 2017 -18 season. In the summer of 2018, he secured his first full-time managerial role at National League side Barrow. 

He impressed at the Cumbrian side and won promotion back to the Football League after a nearly 50-year absence. On the back of this success League 2 side Bolton Wanderers made an approach for Evatt’s services and he joined them in July 2020.  In his first season, he won promotion for Bolton to League 1 after finishing in 3rd spot. His career could not have panned out much better (so far) and he was quoted towards the head of the next Blackpool Manager betting market when Michael Appleton was sacked by the Tangerines in January 2023. 

Robbie Stockdale

Image: rex features

After a four-year spell at Grimsby Town as a player, Robbie Stockdale became the youth team manager. He was promoted to Joint Caretaker manager when Neil Woods was sacked in 2011. Along with Dave Moore, the pair were in charge for four games before a new manager was appointed. He moved to Sunderland in 2012 and took up a youth team role again. Over 3 years, he took caretaker charge of Sunderland when the Black Cats undertook a change of manager. Finally, in 2021 he got a full-time role as boss of Rochdale United, but after a dreadful start to the 2022-23 campaign, he found himself out of work. Most recently, his name was mentioned for the Hartlepool job (Stockdale was born in nearby Redcar) after Graeme Lee was given his marching orders. 


Kevin Nolan 

Image: West Ham United

After playing over 500 games, half of which was for Bolton Wanderers, he joined Leyton Orient as player-manager. Fourteen games in, he was replaced by Andy Hessenthaler by the owners. He moved on to League 2 club Notts County in 2017 again as a player-manager and was offered a permanent managerial contract in the East Midlands. After a poor start in the 2018-19 season, he was dismissed. Since then, he has assisted David Moyes at West Ham United. 

Pete Wild

Slightly unusually, Pete Wild never played in the football league but has taken to club management. Since 2022 he has been at the helm of Barrow in League 2 and was linked to various vacancies that included Bradford City and Grimsby Town when Michael Jolley departed.
