Thomas takes charge

By Jonathan Parsons

The Gingerbreads move swiftly to appoint a new manager

Grantham Town FC are delighted and excited to announce that Richard Thomas has been appointed as the club's new manager with immediate effect.

Richard, who lives in Nottingham, brings a wealth of experience with him at all levels, and was most recently Assistant Manager to Kevin Nolan at Notts County. Richard will take charge of the side for tomorrow's Evo-Stik fixture at Matlock Town, with his first home match on Saturday, when we welcome Halesowen Town to The Meres for the FA Trophy 1st Qualifying Round tie.

As part of Richard's arrival, Dennis Rhule has been promoted to the position of Assistant Manager. Dennis is obviously a familiar face to all Gingerbreads having served under numerous managers over the years, including being part of the managerial team that won the Evo-Stik Premier Division One South in 2012 and being an integral part of last season's run to the Playoff Final. Congratulations Dennis!

The club welcomes Richard and his family to the club, and we look forward to a successful time under his tenure.
