Grantham Town travel to lowly Witton Albion tomorrow (Saturday) on the back of two morale-boosting wins.

The Gingerbrads set their recent boardroom squabbles aside and put in two sterling home performances on Saturday and Tuesday to take them up from 15th to seventh place in the league.

Two clean sheets, five goals and six points saw the Gingerbreads return to winning ways following two successive defeats.

Grantham snatched all three points with a single injury time goal against Workington, and followed up that win with a convincing 4-0 drubbing of Nantwich Town in midweek.

Meanwhile, machinations off the pitch continued following the departure of chairman and director Barrie Pierpoint last week.

Responding to Mr Pierpoint’s views on the club and his resignation in last week’s Journal, GranthamTown on Saturday distributed a leaflet at The Meres entitled ‘The Shock Resignation of Barrie Pierpoint – The True Professional – The Facts’.

The club states in the leaflet that itis not afraid of change and as for not liking the speed Mr Pierpoint was “going at” it said: “Too true – we don’t like the speed he has gone through the door and left us with a mountain to climb.”

+ All serving members of the Armed Forces will receive free admission to Grantham Town’s home game against Trafford on Saturday, November 8.

+ The Gingerbreads’ next home game at The Meres is against high-flying Buxton on Tuesday day. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
