Grantham Town unveiled their new kit at a fans’ forum at The Meres MCS Centre on Monday night.
Gingerbreads goalkeeper Danny Haystead modelled the new strip which sees Grantham return to traditional black and white stripes kit for the new season in the Northern Premier League Premier Division. The way kit is a gold and black striped shirt. Both are available to order from the club shop.
As well as a new kit, the Gingerbreads will have a new striker for their first match of the season at Blyth Spartans on Saturday, following the injury to Paul Grimes in Grantham’s final friendly game against Carlton.
Joint manager Jimmy Albans revealed that Grimes has been assessed as having a fractured fibula and is expected to be out of action for the first eight to 10 weeks of the season.
Albans said: “It’s disappointing for Paul and the squad. He had a great pre-season and was looking sharp, but will come back strong for us, we know.”
Albans and co-boss Wayne Hallcro had already planned to get another striker in before Saturday and this has been achieved.
Albans said: “We have today put pen to paper on an initial one month loan deal to bring Alex Simmons to the club from Lincoln City.”
Simmons came through the youth ranks with the Imps, making his first team debut against Braintree Town last season. Signed on a one-year deal with Lincoln for this season, Simmons will join the Gingerbreads for training this week.
His father, Tony, made 23 appearances for the Gingerbreads, netting three times at the end of his playing career.
