The ticker-tape will be out at Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field in two weeks’ time when Spalding United finally gets its hands on the UCL Premier Division trophy.

A day of events to officially crown the Tulips champions, including the trophy handover, is being lined up for the side’s last home game of the season against Huntingdon Town on April 19.

Tulips fans have had to wait ten years since the last time the title came to Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field under former boss Dick Creasey.

Now, the latest of his successors Pat Rayment will emulate Creasey’s feat after also winning the title as a Tulips player in 1999.

Rayment said: “We’ve achieved what our two-year plan was meant to do which was to get promotion.

“But as much as it’s for all the hard work that has gone in from the players and football staff, it’s for the supporters who have been quite long-suffering over the last few years. Hopefully, we can use this as a platform for Spalding United to have more support.”
