U13's win in local derby

Grantham beat Great Ponton for 2nd time this season

Grantham made the short journey to Great Ponton to take on their nearest league rivals.
Grantham started brightly in the game and early on had a chance on goal only to be caught offside. Grantham were playing 'downhill' first half and this was an obvious advantage and then Ollie Burton put Kieran Smith through on goal on 7 minutes to fire Grantham into the lead.
Two minutes later Grantham had doubled their lead with a fine finish from Lewis Smith.

Ponton came more into the match and were working hard with some good football going forward, however Matthew Smith and Tom Clark in central defence were on top of their game.
Ollie Burton and liam Ginnelly were linking up well in midfield and causing the hosts problems. Aflie Hardman was solid in a defensive midfield role and on 24 minutes played a perfected weighted pass to Kieran Smith who fired the Gingerbreads into a 3 goal lead.
From the kick off Grantham won the ball back and found Lewis Smith in space who shot passed the keeper to further the Grantham advantage.

Ponton had chances of their own and a couple of long range shots just went over bar. Grantham goalkeeper Harry Pulfrey was in fine form too stopping attacks from the hosts.
On 28 minutes Grantham found themselves 5-0 up when Kieran Smith completed his hatrick.

Ponton weren't finished yet though and were playing some attractive football with some neat moves and on 34 minutes they were rewarded when they found space and played a delightful chip towards the goal which was out of the reach of the Grantham keeper to make it 5-1.

On the stroke of half time the lead was expanded furthered their lead when Kieran Smith ran through to score his forth of the game.

Great Ponton started the second half the better team and were putting the Grantham defence under pressure, Matthew Lambley and Jakub Radowski were made to work hard as the hosts were having their best spell of the match.
Luke Pulfrey was working well down the left handside and he won the ball in midfield that eventually on 48 minutes saw Lewis Smith complete his hatrick and put the visitors 7-1 in front.

Henry Johnson and Jack Carroll were putting in top performances as was Keiran Tarver on the right of midfield.
liam Ginnelly replaced Kieran Smith up front and he calmly slotted home from a one on one with the keeper to finish the match as 8-1 winners.

Oliver Burton was named Grantham Town man of the match.
