Dayle Southwell would love to get on the scoresheet against his former club Grimsby Town - to ‘show them what they’re missing’.

The Pilgrims striker is keen to be involved when the Pilgrims host the Mariners in a friendly on Saturday (KO 3pm).

Southwell joined United 12 months ago after struggling to get regular football at Blundell Park, where he had been since his youth-team days.

He made an instant impact, scoring 30 times for the Pilgrims last season.

“I’m a Boston player now, but I did smile when I saw we were paying Grimsby in pre-season,” Southwell said.

“They have been a big part of my football career so far.

“But it would be nice to score against them on Saturday to show them what they’re missing.”

A United XI will complete the club’s pre-season schedule at Worksop Town on Monday (KO 7.45pm).

United also faced Sunderland’s under 21s last night.
