The Arrows enjoyed an emphatic friendly victory over Central Midlands League outfit Newark Town on Saturday, running out 7-0 winners.

Prior to kick-off, there was an excellently observed minute’s applause for Danny Walsh, a regular supporter of the club, who died in tragic circumstances last week.

After a scrappy opening 10 minutes, Harrowby dominated the game with goals coming from a Dan Reidy brace, including a cheeky back heel, two sharply taken strikes from Craig Wilson, a Jack Whyley header and a good finish from a tight angle by Billy Gray.

l Earlier in the day, Harrowby’s skipper Simon Bolland (centre) was presented with training tops by Marshall Volvo of Grantham’s sales manager Geoff Wickes (left) and warranty manager Kevin Lilley.

l The Arrows were brought down to earth on Tuesday night at The Environcom when a very strong Lincoln United scored three goals without reply in each half.

Ruthless finishing and a tireless work ethic gave the visitors a comfortable victory although Harrowby stuck to their task and really worked hard in their final pre-season game.

Lincoln’s goals came from a Andy Hutchinson hat trick, Josh Bowden, Simon Mowbray and former Grantham Town favourite Gio Carchedi.

l Harrowby’s league campaign gets underway on Saturday with a home fixture against Irchester United.
