Grantham Town’s Gio and Sam go out on loan

The Gingerbreads have put fans’ favourites Gio Carchedi and Sam Purcicoe out on loan to two Northern Premier League Division One South sides.

Carchedi has gone to Lincoln United and Purcicoe will be playing at Rainworth Miners Welfare.

Grantham joint manager Gary Sucharewycz said both players needed some games to restore match fitness. He said: “We had everything set up a few weeks ago, but there was no point in making it happen until the bad weather had cleared.”
