Grantham Town say that with ‘great sadness,’ the club has reluctantly agreed to release Tom Ward 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 player’s desire to play at a higher level. We hope he’s successful at his new club.”
