Chance to check out Grantham Town’s new commemorative kit

Have your say

Gingerbreads supporters will get their first glimpse of their team’s new Northgate Vehicle Hire-sponsored strip at The Meres stadium on Thursday evening (August 15).

A kit launch and fans’ forum is being held at the stadium’s MCS Centre from 7pm, where supporters have the opportunity to view and purchase the forthcoming season’s home and away kits.

The limited edition home strip has been produced to commemorate the biggest game in Grantham Town’s history, when they played Middlesbrough in the third round of the FA Cup in 1974, having previously beaten Rochdale 5-3 away in a second round replay. The red strip will be for this season only.

The fans’ forum will give Gingerbreads supporters the opportunity to quiz the team’s joint manager and the club’s board of directors on plans for the season ahead and beyond.

Town’s commercial manager Steve Cardy said it should be an enjoyable and interesting evening: “After the very positive pre-season we have had, with seven wins out of eight against some very good opposition, we are really looking forward to the new season.

“This evening is to give the fans a chance not only to get a look at the new kit but also ask any questions they like about how we see things at the club, working from the inside. All are welcome to attend.”
