After being relegated from Division Two in 1920, Grimsby were the only Northern side in the inaugural Division Three the following year - the rest of the division being made up of teams that resigned from the Southern League. The first games with the the Town came in April 1921 - within the space of seven days, the sides played out a 3-0 win for the Mariners at Blundell Park, and a 0-0 draw at the County Ground in the return fixture.

With the creation of the Third Division (North) at the end of that season, it was to be seventeen years before the sides met again, by which time Grimsby were a First Division side. Drawn away, Only 14,000 people witnessed the Town hold the Mariners to a draw at Blundell Park - just four days later, over 23,000 were at the County Ground to see Swindon come from behind to win 2-1. The Town's equaliser came just five minutes from time, with Ben Morton, the club's first ever £1,000 signing, scoring his first goal after not finding the net in any of his first eleven games.
