Grantham Town have learned who the opponents will be in their Northern Premier League Integro Cup semi-final tie next month.

The Gingerbreads will host Clitheroe FC at The Meres next Tuesday, April 4, with kick-off at 7.45pm.

The victors will be decided on the night, with a penalty shootout deciding the outcome should the match end in a stalemate after 90 minutes.

Should Town overcome their First Division North opponents, they will progress to the final which is scheduled to be played on Wednesday, April 19; location and kick-off time to be confirmed.

Grantham’s away fixture at Coalville Town has been moved to Tuesday, April 11, kick off 7.45pm, so they do not have to play two matches in the same week.

Town’s visit to Buxton, originally planned to be midweek this week, will now be played on Saturday, April 15. Therefore, their home match against Rushall Olympic has moved from Saturday, April 15, to next Saturday, April 8.

The reshuffle means that the Gingerbreads will finish the league season with four away matches, the final two being at Corby Town on Monday, April 17, and at table toppers Blyth Spartans on Saturday, April 22.
