Spalding United are determined to make progress off the pitch as well as on it.

Recently-appointed chief executive officer and former Tulips’ player Malcolm Gray insists building on the club’s community activities will be one of his priorities.

He said: “I want us to build on the activities already in place, and this begins on Saturday.

“We are inviting all children Under 16 to join us for free entry and join in the club’s celebrations.”

The day’s celebrations carry on into the evening when the Tulips’ Social Club hosts a hog roast and fun race night from 7.30pm. A few tickets are still available at £5.

The Tulips are also re-introducing a reserve team next season after an absence of around ten years.

Andrew Coaton, chairman of Spalding Athletic Junior at the time of their affiliation with the Tulips, will run the team with Kev Nottingham who currently manages the club’s Under-18s.

At present it is not known which league they will join.

It could be either the Peterborough and District League or the Reserve Division of the United Counties League.
