JOINT bosses Jimmy Albans and Wayne Hallcro signed a new two-year deal with Grantham Town on the pitch before the final game of the season.
Gingerbreads chairman Steve Boam said it was just reward for their efforts in gaining Town promotion. He said: “It was the easiest decision I have had to make as chairman. We have a fantastic working relationship and they believe in the same things as I do.”
Albans said that he and Hallcro appreciated the club’s gesture. Albans said: “We feel it gives us the stability we wanted to go forward from this point. There has been a lot of stability at the club since we joined, a lot of changes as well, but this demonstrated to us, the board, fans and players alike that we are here for the long term. It is one job done, another started.
“Our aim is to be in the same sort of position again in two to three years. If it happens quicker, then all well and good. Our new contracts should give the current squad that certainty from us, but also shows to new recruits that there is no quick fix at Grantham. We will do things the same way in the Premier Division.”
