Club Statement

Following the recent videos emerging on social media channels, Gainsborough Trinity FC would like to make the following statement regarding our staff recruitment policy for full time staff and volunteers. We have a child protection policy and other policies in place and we take matchday child protection very seriously. With this, for any matchday staff employed as a volunteer or paid, we do due diligence and check their suitability to work in certain roles at the football club and, if the role demands that DBS checks are carried out, then we do so.


Barnsley Pre Season Fixture Announced

Gainsborough Trinity are delighted to announce the visit of Barnsley FC to the Martin & Co Arena on Saturday 7th July, with a 3pm kick off. The fixture marks the start of an exciting journey that will be the 2018/19 campaign under the guidance of highly experienced duo Lee Sinnott and John Reed. And with Barnsley looking to bring a strong side to the Northolme, we look forward to welcoming a good number of Tykes to Gainsborough for the game.


New signing Jack Tuohy goes in front of the camera and tells you a little bit about himself following his arrival from Moseley, also formerly of Chadderton, Shaw Lane and Oldham Athletic. Find out how the move came about and the type of player you can expect to see.

Nicky Walker Moves On

Nicky Walker has today signed for Boston United. Despite being offered terms of re-engagement, Nicky has opted to join Boston, as he looks to remain in the National League North. A deal has been struck between the two clubs for an undisclosed compensation deal for his registration and we thank Nicky for his time whilst at the club, where he quickly became a popular member of the team with his direct, aggressive running and eye for goal.


Gainsborough Trinity have moved to re-sign 27 year old left back Ben Gordon from Shaw Lane. Ben spent a short period at Trinity last season, making two appearances including his debut off the bench in the 1-1 draw away at Spennymoor. Initially returning after three months out, Ben struggled for fitness, but having found his feet became a regular at Shaw Lane last season.


Damian Reeves Signs

Gainsborough Trinity have moved to bolster their attacking options ahead of the 2018/19 season with the signing of experienced striker Damian Reeves. Reeves joins the Holy Blues after a season with Shaw Lane where he scored on 23 occasions and led the side on a FA Cup run which culminated in a First Round tie with Mansfield Town.


Gainsborough Wildcats sessions start on Tuesday 17th April at Roses Sports Ground, 6.30pm to 7.30pm, and Friday 20th April at Levellings Playing Field, 3.45pm to 4.45pm. Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more details.
