Spalding United have been handed a boost with the news that striker Gary King is staying at the club.

The highly-rated King had been offered full-time terms by Evo-Stik Northern Premier League outfit Lincoln United but has opted to stay with The Tulips.

“For whatever reason the deal did not suit Gary, but that is good news for us,” manager Pat Rayment told the Free Press.

After having planned friendlies against Eynesbury and Hucknall called off, Spalding entertain local rivals Boston United on Thursday evening before hosting Wyberton on Saturday.
