TOM WARD LEAVES FOR HIGHER GROUND
BY SIMON HAYES


https://www.granthamtownfc.com

It is with great sadness that the club has reluctantly agreed to release Tom Ward with immediate effect.
...so he may take the opportunity to pursue his career with a club higher up the league pyramid.

Chairman Nigel Wedgwood said, "We are very sorry to see him go, He has been a great asset to Grantham Town, both on and off the pitch. He has always been extremely professional and a gentleman to work with. The Club wish him, and his family, all the very best with his new team."

Gingerbreads Joint Manager Russ Cousins added "Of course we wanted him to stay but we also understand a players desire to play at a higher level. We hope he's successful at his new club"


                                                         ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Someone on Grantham's Facebook page said he's coming to Lynn. I would think that its just Terrace talk at the moment, but it wouldn't surprise me if its correct.

If we are signing Tom Ward it surely a short term answer.  30 year old been playing at step 3.  Must be a good few years ago since he played at this level.

So where does that leave Gash (33) and Jarvis (34)? Both playing step 3 last season

30 is not old. If Culverhouse signs him he must be good enough for this level. I'm pretty certain that Culverhouse's judgement in evaluating a player is superior to anyone on here.

Hold the phone.  Has he actually been signed yet ?

All I meant was we have Young Chris Smith who has bags of improvement in him.  Ryan Fryatt now in prime, so see Ward ( if we are signing him) as a short term answer. Originally IC was talking of getting a loaner in, while the other 2 were recovering.

I seem to recall at the end of Tom Wards spell with us IC had him on the bench a fair bit.

IC said in his interview after last nights game, he's hoping to have a permanent signing in by Saturday.

Smith another 4 weeks out, Fryatt awaiting an MRI scan.

Ward would be a good signing. If it's him!

Would be a good signing, fits in with team style, has played with some before and at 6 ft 5 would add some much needed height to the backline

If it is Ward then an great bit of work by IC - Ward was the most improved player in IC's first spell at the club, can play in a two or, more importantly, in a three and will add real competition for those centre half spots when everyone is fit.  Just what the squad was missing at the start of the season, better late than never.
