Lee Peacock says he will not be looking to leave Grimsby Town following the club's relegation from the Football League.

The experienced striker joined the Mariners on an 18-month contract in January from Swindon Town, but was unable to keep the club in League Two.

He admits he has not performed at his best since moving to Blundell Park and the 33-year-old is keen to play his part in helping Grimsby secure promotion next season.

Peacock told the club's official website: "My family's settled here. We've just been in meetings with the gaffer. There's certain things to be looked at.

Settled

"I love it here and I'm settled here. I've never settled at a club as quick as I have done here.

"I loved my time at Swindon and it was so hard leaving there and I came here because I knew the gaffer and he sold the club so well.

"Since I've been here, even though we've been relegated, I've had such a good experience being here and I feel like, even now, I've been a bit of a shadow of myself.

"I've not been the player I want to be because I know I can be fitter, stronger, more athletic and get a hell of a lot more goals.

"I know that within myself and that's what I want to be working to do next year and show the people here what I'm really all about."
