THEY might have been on the field together for only four minutes, but the Sodje brothers created a little bit of history for themselves at Vale Park last weekend.
Skipper Efe was joined in the first team by substitute Akpo - whose real name looks more like a Scrabble hand - to complete a nice family double.
It was the first time since Sam and Simon Collins appeared on the same pitch together in 1996 that Town had fielded brothers in the same first team.
It was extra-special for Akpo, who was making his League debut after being handed a three-month contract, and a proud moment for Efe, who has another brother, Sam, playing at Brentford.
Before the Collins lads played alongside each other under Brian Horton, it had been 50 years since Town had fielded brothers in their senior side.
They were the Watsons, Willie and Albert, who featured in 1946.
Other sets of brothers have been on the books at the same time but not featured together in the senior line-up.
Most recently, Phil and Michael Senior were in the same squad, but never got onto the pitch together.
In the 1950s, Jeff and Ken Taylor just crossed paths, but Jeff had left by the time Ken made his debut.
Clem Stephenson's brother George never played for Town, but they both managed the club, and maybe there's a new twist.
On Wednesday at Blundell Park, Nathan Clarke played for Town Reserves while his younger brother Tom was on the bench. What next?
TOWN Reserves, having lost their last three matches, are not in action again until they play Sheffield Wednesday at the Galpharm on Monday, September 27 (2.00) in the Pontin's Holidays League Cup.
