Grimsby Town 4-1 Bromley

Unbeaten Grimsby Town thrashed newly-promoted Bromley, who have lost both of their away matches.

Padraig Amond scored early to give the Mariners the lead before Omar Bogle netted from the spot after he was fouled by Bromley's Jack Holland.

Amond added his second from close range but Callum Davies headed home for the visitors before half-time.

Grimsby, beaten in last season's play-off final, added a fourth when Craig Clay converted Jack Mackreth's pass.

Hurst on Grimsby v Bromley

Grimsby boss Paul Hurst told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I do think there's a lot more to come from us still. I'm not saying that's a case of gelling and things like that I just think we will get better given a bit more time and a bit more game hardened.

"To beat both teams who won their leagues last year and today an element of the slightly unknown, you know bits, but it was a good start to the game. One that we would love to have every time we play at Blundell Park.

"But that put them on the back foot and in the end it was relatively easy afternoon for us."
