Unbeaten run comes to an end

First league defeat away form home

Grantham U13's travelled over the Lincolnshire Wolds for the first meeting between the two sides on a bitterly cold morning.

Louth Town attacked the Grantham defence from the start and had a few early chances and won a couple of corners, the visiting back four were kept busy in the opening exchanges.

The hosts went 1-0 up on 10 minutes with a neat move and good finish.
At the other end, Lewis Smith and Jack Carroll were causing a few problems but nothing came of their chances, then on 14 minutes Louth doubled their lead from a goal mouth scramble as the ball was poked home.

2 minutes later the Gingerbreads broke through the Louth defence and good work by Jack Carroll saw his shot hit the post and run along the goal line before it was cleared by the hosts.

Louth scored their third on 25 minutes when thier striker was put through on goal and fired past Davis Kalnis in goal.

The 2nd half started badly for Grantham as the hosts scored within a minute of the whistle to go 4-0 up.

Grantham hadn't given up though and showed great battling spirit as they tried to get back into the match, Ollie Burton had a shot saved by the keeper and some good work from Alfie Hardman and liam Ginnelly in midfield as the young Gingerbreads challenged their opponents.

Grantham were rewarded for their efforts on 56 minutes as Lewis Smith finished well to beat the keeper and make it 4-1.

Still the Gingerbreads came forward but Louth played some tidy football and on 65 minutes found the net again with a good strike.

Louth however ran out worthy winners as they scored a sixth with a couple of minutes left on the clock to end this entertaining match 6-1.

Grantham Town man of the match was Alfie Hardman.
