Description: South Kesteven Sports Stadium
The stadium occupies the plot of previous football training complex The Meres. Thus the nickname, remembering the roots of current Grantham Town FC. Quite rightly, as all of the best performing youth later moved to play at the club, in the town centre.
The centrally-located stadium was closed in 1990, however, while construction began on the new one. It was ready to accept players and spectators in the summer of 1991.
With stands able to hold 7,500 people with terracing included, it’s always spacious enough for everyone. That of course is due to low-profile games currently played by The Gingerbreads.
