Grantham Town have appointed new commercial director Keith Horton who will work alongside the club’s chief executive Barrie Pierpoint.

The pair have worked together before when Mr Pierpoint was at Leicester City and Mr Horton was with the city’s Chamber of Commerce.

Mr Horton said: “I have known Barrie since 1994. Barrie was involved with Leicester City and worked very closely with the Chamber of Commerce to build things at the club. At the time, there was a lot of sporting competition with Leicestershire County Cricket doing well and of course Leicester Tigers. The partnership was successful for the football club.”

Mr Pierpoint welcomed Mr Horton to the club: “He will not only bring his successes and experience but will add a further strength to the new commercial team, all part of the tide of change at Grantham Town. All the commercial team’s work and success is to provide a stronger playing budget next season.”
