Management Team Depart

Management Team Depart

Gainsborough Trinity have today parted company with management duo Lee Sinnott and John Reed following a disappointing run of results in which the team only picked up two wins in eleven home games, cumulating in 1-4 and 0-5 reverses at the hands of Warrington Town and Farsley Celtic, in recent weeks.

Initially appointed on this day a year ago (13th February 2018), replacing former manager David Frecklington and Terry Fleming, the pair just failed in their bid to keep the Holy Blues in the National League North.

Where there’s a Will, there’s a way

Gainsborough Trinity have today moved to secure the services of Doncaster Rovers’ forward thinking player, Will Longbottom, on an initial month’s loan. Will Longbottom, who made his first team debut for Rovers as a second half substitute back in May 2016, scored his first senior goal in the EFL Cup, later that same year. As part of his development, Longbottom has spent spells out on loan at both Kidderminster Harriers and Halesowen Town, before this week arriving at the Martin & Co Arena.

At twenty years of age, and with goals against Derby County and Southport in his fledgling career, these all point to making Will an exciting addition to the Gainsborough Trinity squad. Of his new addition, Lee Sinnott revealed, "We have observed Will (Longbottom) over the same period of time as Max (Watters, who came in last week and netted on debut away at Mickleover Sports). Longbottom is a left sided footballer who is very comfortable on the ball and likes to plays. He’s equally as comfortable on the left side as he is in the middle of a three. We needed a little injection with the unavailability of Alex Simmons and Ross Hannah and are delighted to have Will on board, as there was other interest in him. This deal goes to show the burgeoning relationship we have with Doncaster Rovers."

Trinity Reserves - Half Yearly Report

Buxton Fixture Postponed

Gainsborough Trinity Reserves began the season more in hope, rather than expectation, with a group of players assembled over the long hot summer, given the honour of playing for Gainsborough Trinity in our inaugural season.

Headed up by Jimmy Snee, Leeboy Green and Karl Slack, the management trio were optimistic of the chances, however the players have delivered well above any real expectations. Buoyed on by the home surroundings that is the Northolme and encouraged to play on the deck from back to front, some of the performances have been outstanding, bringing plaudits from numerous opponents, and spectators alike.

Blues Rocked by Skipper Revelation

Blues Rocked by Skipper Revelation

Club Captain, Liam King has today had his contract cancelled by mutual consent. King, who has been injured since October, took the steps to initiate the discussion with chairman Richard Kane following a number of setbacks in his quest to regain his fitness. Preferring to relinquish his wage and concentrate on his long-term health and well-being, the popular thirty-one year old took the unusual steps of requesting his contract be cancelled.

The news comes following a prolonged period out of action with a serious back injury picked up in October. The tenacious midfielder turned out for the Reserves and also made a late cameo in the 4-1 victory over Workington but has suffered a further set back in his quest for a return to full fitness. And ultimately felt it only right to end his contract.

Trinity Boosted to the Max

Trinity Boosted to the Max

Gainsborough Trinity are delighted to announce the signing of Max Watters on loan from Doncaster Rovers for a month initially. Max has caught the eye of management duo, Lee Sinnott and John Reed in a couple of EFL Academy u23 games at Doncaster including scoring in a 1-1 draw with Rotherham United earlier this week. On signing for Doncaster Rovers in the summer, Watters stepped up from Step 8 side Ashford United where he had played 27 times, scoring regularly as he played across the midfield and up top.

The youngster has also represented England at under 18 level, where he was part of the joint winning Home Nations side, for which he played a starring role in the tournament with a clutch of goals and assists. With Evo-Stik Northern Premier League experience at Grantham Town, where he scored four times in 21 appearances, young Max was on the mark against Stafford Rangers, grabbing a brace away at Workington and including netting a spectacular individual goal against North Ferriby.
