Grantham Town suffered their first pre-season defeat at Carlton Town on Thursday night.

The Gingerbreads went behind after six minutes when Julian Toplis gave the Nottingham side the lead.

Grantham forced six corner kicks but were unable to make more of them and were still behind at the break.

Both sides utilised plenty of substitutes in the second half and the Gingerbreads went closest to equalising from Greg Smith headers, but all three went just wide.
