Grantham Town bosses finalise squad

GRANTHAM Town joint managers Jimmy Albans and Wayne Hallcro have signed what should be their final addition to the squad.

After adding Jimmy Lindley, Conor Higginson and Karl Demidh last week, the experienced Steve Towers has also agreed terms with the Gingerbreads.

Both Demidh and Towers have been targets of Hallcro and Albans for a while.

The managerial pair first looked at Demidh when he was at Bardon last season and tried to prize him away from Coalville before the end of the campaign.

Demidh said: “I stayed at Coalville as they were my third club last season and I wanted to show I was prepared to see something through.

“I knew Grantham were interested in me and I am looking forward to playing in a front three again.

“It is my preferred way of playing and I didn’t play as well as I can at Coalville as they never got the best out of me. I am confident in my own ability and confident that Grantham will bring the best out of me.”

Midfielder Towers has spent most of the last five seasons at Blue Square North Corby Town.

Towers said: “I have known Wayne since we were together at Stamford. I wasn’t enjoying my football at Corby as much as I had with everything that was going on there, so when Jimmy and Wayne got in touch, it took my interest.

“Grantham are a club on the up and looked very good when I played in the pre-season friendly. It struck me as the right club for me to get back to enjoying my football again.”
