New Grantham gaffers bring in first three signings

Grantham Town’s new management team have announced their first signings at the club.

Paul Rawden and Russ Cousins came in following the departure of Richard Thomas recently and have gone about shaking up a squad that is languishing in the bottom half of the EVO-STIK League Premier Division.

Midfielder Chris Dawson, 24, joins on a month’s loan from Bradford Park Avenue. He played four games in the Championship for Leeds United and has two Under 21 caps for Wales.

Striker Jordan Adebayo-Smith, 18, joins on a work experience loan from Lincoln City and has this season featured in the EFL Trophy.

The third signing is midfielder Michael Tweed, who joins from Nuneaton Borough.

Rawden said: "All three have experience at a higher level, they all know what they are coming into and are ready for the fight.

“We played a behind closed doors friendly against Spalding United yesterday, winning 4-1.

“It's good to get some game time and to be able to see certain players in different roles. We're looking forward to Tuesday night."
