Marine 0-2 Grantham Town

Mariners suffer defeat at the MTA...

Report by Ste Carson

Marine lost 2-0 at home to Grantham Town on Saturday after conceding an early goal and failing to show more fight than the Gingerbreads.

Grantham started the more organised of the two sides, with Marine only able to create chances early on by having the ball pumped into the opposition half.

Marine began to impose on their guests and started to carve out a number of opportunities toward the end of the first half but it was Grantham that struck first.

In the 20th minute Ross Barrows scored a sublime goal from 25 yards out, he completely wrong-footed Martin Fearon and his goal ensured Grantham went in ahead after 45 minutes.

The first half ended quite a bit scrappy with limbs seemingly being thrown around everywhere in an attempt to gain – and keep – possession of the ball.

James Short came closest for Marine in the second half, with a thundering effort from no less than 25-yards which rebounded off of the crossbar and out of play.

The game was effectively finished off just after the hour mark as Michael Hollingsworth converted a penalty kick which was awarded after a Kenny Strickland foul.

It can’t be overstated how important Grantham’s captain, Tom Batchelor, was to his team; he was a colossus at the back and kept Danny Mitchley, Marine’s skipper, quiet.
