Experience overcame youth in the annual Spalding Grammar School Old Boys match.

The Old Boys, managed by former student Sam Roberts, put out a strong side to take on the Year 13 leavers and they ran out 4-2 winners.

A fine brace from Dan Wilshere wasn’t enough to salvage a draw for the students as they fought out a hotly-contested match against an accomplished and experienced team, entirely made up of former Grammar School pupils.

Twice Wilshire levelled for the youngsters but two late goals were enough to give the Old Boys victory.
