Grantham Town Academy manager Louis Bland said: "These boys have been first class all season. From the first day of pre-season till the end, we’ve dominated every game we’ve played, and always been on the front foot which is very important to us as a group.

"These boys got to the first round Proper of the FA Youth cup which again is a fantastic achievement. Hopefully we see these boys progressing through the ranks and hopefully playing in the first team very soon."
