Grantham Town host Trafford at The Meres for first time

Have your say

Grantham Town host Trafford for the first time at The Meres tomorrow (Saturday, October 5).

The game comes on the back of last Saturday’s confidence-booster over Ilkeston FC, after which joint manager Gary Sucharewycz described his and Ian Robinson’s side as “professional” in their attitude.

The Gingerbreads scored a goal early in each half and back them up with solid play throughout the field. Sucharewycz said: “We defended solidly as a team and deserved a clean sheet.

“We read the game well. It was just a thoroughly professional performance.”

League debutants Trafford lie just two places below Grantham and beat high-fliers Skelmersdale United 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Players to look out for include clinical finisher Shelton Payne who has nine goals to his name this season. Seventeen-year-old keeper Kieran O’Hara is not to be under-estimated.

Kick-off at The Meres is 3pm.
