Grantham take the points in derby match

Another home win for the young Gingerbreads

An extremely windy Mere's saw the visit of Great Ponton.

Grantham had the wind with them in the first half and put Great Ponton under pressure early on, and it was on 3 minutes that the Gingerbreads took the lead when Lewis Smith fired a great shot past the visiting keeper.

Grantham came at their opponents again and good work from the lively Jack Carroll on the right wing found Lewis Smith whose shot was put wide of the target.
liam Ginnelly had an effort moments later however it was too high to worry the goalkeeper.

Ponton had chances of their own and the Grantham defence were made to work hard to clear their lines.

Lewis Smith had a couple more chances to further the lead however his shots were saved by the impressive Ponton keeper on both occasions.
Ollie Burton had a shot that just went wide and liam Ginnelly also went close again.

Playing against the wind in the second half, the Gingerbreads had to work that much harder.

liam Ginnelly came off injured 10 minutes into the half and was replaced by Keiran Tarver and on 45 minutes Grantham doubled their lead when Kieran Tarver picked up a loose ball to score his first goal for the club.

At the other end Ponton had a series of corners which Grantham put Grantham under pressure but the defence kept them out.

Ten minutes later Ollie Burton was put through inside the box to put the Gingerbreads 3-0 up.
There were further Grantham chances when Kieran Tarver, Ollie Burton and Lewis Smith all had shots saved.

Great Ponton gave themselves hope on the hour mark as they scored to make it 3-1.

Ponton rallied in the final minutes and after a late goal mouth scramble Grantham cleared to take the points.
