One of the day’s organisers, Nigel Marshall said: “Having missed last year, it was great to be back and to see lots of faces we haven’t seen for a long time.

“I’d like to thank Drayton Motors and all the other sponsors for their support this year. It has meant we were able to donate £500 to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.”

Gingerbreads chairman, Darren Ashton, said: “Despite how I played, it’s been a really good day.

“A massive thank you goes to Nigel and Brian for organising the day, and also to Dick, Josie and Emma for their help on the day.

“Their hard work has given the club a really good donation for us to use sensibly as we pushed forward to the start of the season.

“There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes and we cannot wait to share things with supporters but at the moment we’re just holding back.

“Carlton (Palmer) is still out of the country, Matt and Jas are getting players on board and there are training sessions happening, work is being done on the pitch and we’re finalising the friendlies.”
