We will enter 2015 in a financially stable position with a team of committed players and volunteers.

The new joint management team of Adam Stevens and Wayne Hallcro are pulling together a young and exciting squad to meet the aspirations of an ambitious club in the seventh tier of English football.

A special mention to all our volunteers without whose support, hard work and enthusiasm we would not be able to run the club. We always need volunteers, so please do not be reticent in coming forward.

In 2015, we will be building upon all the structures we have put into place over the last nine months; most importantly, the development of our youth set-up. We want more teams at all age levels, including girls, to participate in our Saturday morning soccer school and in the league. The new year will also see the opening of our football development centre in partnership with Grantham College. Finally, we will become more active with our partners in the local community, with more initiatives on the Earlesfield and wider business community.

On behalf of everyone at Grantham Town Football Club, I wish all our supporters and friends a very happy and prosperous New Year. I look forward to welcoming you all to The Meres for one of our remaining home games of the 2014/15 season.
