Gainsborough Trinity have been mainstays of the conference north since its induction in 2004, and despite almost exiting the division last season following a precarious 19th place finish, the club will be looking to consolidate their National League North position this year. The Trinity manager, Dave Frecklington, made a number of summer signings from recently promoted near-neighbours, Lincoln City and the club will be looking to continue to progress on the pitch to match the increase in attendance by 26% last term.


Trinity play at The Northolme, also known as the Martin & Co. Arena. It has a capacity of 4300 with 515 seats and has been the club’s home for almost 150 years. Entry to the game will set supporters back £12/£8/£4 and County fans should allow two hours for travel.
