GRANTHAM United came out all guns blazing with fine results against Croxton and Nobody Inn.

In the game against Springfield AFC, there was some fine football played by both teams but ultimately the United lads came out on top with a well deserved 3-1 victory, with goals from Mark Gray, Sam Scothern and Tyler Haynes.

United took on Harrowby United Reserves in a last minute arrangement last Tuesday.

A slow start saw Harrowby take the lead within the first two minutes and look dominant up until half time.

United began to gain in confidence but were 3-0 down midway through the second half.

United pulled out all the stops with goals from Tom Figura, who found himself one-on-one with the Harrowby goalkeeper and comfortably slotted home.

An outstanding free kick with 10 minutes to go from Conor McGregor closed the gap further.

Tyler Haynes fired a half volley from a corner kick into the top left corner to level the scores before the final whistle in an outstanding performance by the whole team.
