FA Cup giant killers Salford City, stars of the BBC documentary The Class of ’92, are next up at The Meres for Grantham Town.

The Gingerbreads take on the team everyone is talking about next Saturday (November 28) – with ex-England and Manchester United stars Gary Neville, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes potentially attending the game.

Grantham Town welcome the north-west side for a 3pm kick off just a week before the visitors’ second round FA Cup showdown with Hartlepool United.

It will be a must-see game for all Gingerbreads fans, old and new, and admission is £10 for adults and £5 for concessions on the turnstile.

There will be offers on at The Gingerbread Bar all day to mark the occasion, with food and drink promotions starting at 1pm.

Football fans can then stay behind after the game to see another Salford City owner – Ryan Giggs – take his Manchester United side to high-flying Leicester City on the big screens in The Gingerbread Bar for the late Sky Premier League game at 5.30pm.

Meanwhile, the Gingerbreads have a local derby to attend to on Tuesday evening.

Grantham travel to near rivals Stamford who are residing in the very bottom echelons of the NPL Premier Division.

The struggling Daniels would not even be as high as second bottom had it not been for ex-Gingerbread Greg Smith, who last week re-signed for Graham Drury’s Stamford.

Going into Saturday’s match, Stamford had lost their last five league games, including a 4-0 home defeat to Nantwich Town and a 5-1 trouncing at Rushall Olympic.

Kick-off on Tuesday night at Stamford is 7.45pm.
