Grantham Town’s pre-season friendlies line-up will include visits from Nottingham Forest and Mansfield Town.

The Gingerbreads will kick off with a Lincolnshire Senior Cup tie at home to Spalding United on Saturday, July 15.

Two days later, Town will play at old local rivals Lincoln United before making the journey to Gresley on Saturday, July 22, and then hosting the two Football League sides.

The Stags will visit The Meres on Tuesday, July 25, followed by the return of Nottingham Forest on Saturday, July 29.

Further details regarding Town’s league visitors will be announced nearer the time, but it is hoped both will be fielding strong sides in preparation for their league campaigns.

The Gingerbreads head into August with trips to Loughborough and Prescot Cables, with the latter forming part of a team-building session planned for Blackpool following the game on Merseyside.

The club hopes to add one or two more fixtures to the line-up and will announce details once arrangements have been confirmed.

Grantham Town’s first league fixture will be on Saturday, August 12.
