Grantham College this week announced that it is to sponsor the Gingerbreads Soccer School.

Headed by Grantham Town chief executive Keith Horton, the soccer school has a team of FA qualified coaches, including Paul Teare, and is open to both girls and boys aged six to 16 of all abilities.

The school numbered 100 players last year and the football club is aiming to double that this time around.

The first session began last Saturday.

Mr Horton said: “The club are celebrating their 140th anniversary and we are extremely pleased to partner with Grantham College to deliver a Football in the Community scheme.”

Grantham College design students have been tasked with creating a logo for the soccer school.

The soccer school runs on Saturday mornings from 10.30am to 11.30am on the pitches at the rear of the stadium. The next six-week rota begins on November 1.
