Nottingham Forest return for Gingerbreads pre-season fixture

1 month ago By Andy Sutton

The 2017/18 pre-season line-up will include visits from Mansfield Town and Nottingham Forest for the Gingerbreads.

Grantham kick-off the 2017/18 campaign with a Lincolnshire double-header, as the first action of the season is a Senior Cup tie at home to Spalding United on Saturday 15th July, followed by a friendly three days later at Lincoln United. The Gingerbreads will then make the journey to Gresley on Saturday 22nd July, before hosting the two football league sides.

The Stags will visit on Tuesday 25th July, followed by the return of Nottingham Forest on Saturday 29th July. Further details regarding both our League visitors will be announced nearer the time, but it is hoped both will be fielding strong sides in preparation for their League campaigns.

Whilst the Gingerbreads head into August with trips to Loughborough and Prescot Cables. The latter will form part of a team building session planned for Blackpool following the game on Merseyside. The club hope to add one or two more fixtures to the line-up, and we will announce once arrangements have been confirmed.
