Grantham Youth Centre’s under-15 five-a-side team just missed out on a chance to win the County Festival of Sports football competition at Nottingham University in January 1978.

They reached the final in which they faced Monty Hind Boys’ Club of Nottingham. Unfortunately, they narrowly lost 3-2, their goals coming from Andrew Ryder and Graham Sumner.

Ryder did score an equaliser but it was adjudged to have gone in the net one second too late.

Also in the team were Dale Scothern, Mark Lander, Steve Allen and Mark Steptoe.
