Grantham Town make second signing of the summer transfer window

The Gingerbreads have announced their second summer signing in the space of a week.

Town have shored up their defensive options by bringing in versatile full-back Ben Turner from Mickleover Sports.

The 27-year-old can play left-back, left wing-back and even as a makeshift centre-half. He joins Grantham after a four-season spell with Mickleover.

This second signing reunites Town manager Martin McIntosh with another ex-player. Turner played under the Gingerbreads boss when the pair were at Worksop Town.

Grantham earlier announced their first signing of the summer window would be 32-year-old striker, Liam Hardy from Buxton FC.

McIntosh said: “Ben is a solid player who has played at this level for a while now and has been consistent every year and the right type of player we need going forward.

“I know him from my time at both Worksop and at Mansfield where he was a young player learning his trade and he is a solid character and a good footballer who is very versatile.”

“Ben is a good athlete who has good energy throughout the 90 minutes.

“He is very talented on the ball and has an excellent left foot whilst also being able to attack and defend up and down the pitch constantly.

“Not only is he a talented footballer, he is also very experienced and will be great in the dressing room as a leader for the rest of his team-mates.”
