Frantic paperwork was completed as Grantham Town re-signed defender Tom Batchelor from Stamford ahead of tonight’s trip to Matlock Town.
Batchelor re-joins the club for a second spell having made 26 appearances during the 2014/15 season.
Tom who began his career with Shrewsbury Town, before dropping into non-league with Lincoln Moorlands having failed to make the grade with the Shrews.
Spells with Stamford and Lincoln United followed, before joining the Gingerbreads ahead of the 2014/15 campaign, before a February 2015 return to Stamford and then briefly Lincoln United again.
The central defender began this season back at Stamford and following their exit from the FA Cup on Sunday has opted to re-join ahead of the visit to Matlock Town.
Ironically one of Tom’s two Grantham goals came in a 2-0 win at Matlock in January 2015, the other goalscorer Danny Meadows is of course also in the squad for tonight’s game.
