Grimsby confirm Fowler interest
Monday 01 December 2008
Grimsby chairman John Fenty has revealed there is "a glimmer of a chance" that former England striker Robbie Fowler will join the Coca-Cola League Two club.
The 33-year-old is currently with Barclays Premier League side Blackburn but is out of contract at the end of the month and Fenty retains hope that Fowler may make a sensational move to Blundell Park.
Fowler knows Grimsby manager Mike Newell well, which has led to talk of a possible deal.
Fenty told the club's official website www.grimsby-townfc.co.uk: "A couple of weeks ago the manager had some discussions with Robbie and then asked me if we could potentially take it forward for Robbie to come in in a playing/coaching capacity.
"He is under contract with Blackburn until December and there is a real chance that he will get an extension there.
"But if that doesn't happen there is a glimmer of a chance that he might come to Grimsby.
"In truth we were trying to avoid this becoming a public issue but I think I needed to clarify the situation."
