Grantham Town host Trafford for the first time at The Meres tomorrow (Saturday, October 5).

The game comes on the back of last Saturday’s confidence-booster over Ilkeston FC, after which joint manager Gary Sucharewycz described his and Ian Robinson’s side as “professional” in their attitude.

The Gingerbreads scored a goal early in each half and back them up with solid play throughout the field. Sucharewycz said: “We defended solidly as a team and deserved a clean sheet.

“We read the game well. It was just a thoroughly professional performance.”

League debutants Trafford lie just two places below Grantham and beat high-fliers Skelmersdale United 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Players to look out for include clinical finisher Shelton Payne who has nine goals to his name this season. Seventeen-year-old keeper Kieran O’Hara is not to be under-estimated.

Kick-off at The Meres is 3pm.
