Have your say

Tonight could be extra special at the Sir Halley Stewart Field with so much at stake.

The wait is finally over as Spalding United play at home for the first time in just over a month.

The Tulips have been on the road for six successive games since knocking out Nantwich Town in the Emirates FA Cup first qualifying round.

This evening they are looking to book a spot in the fourth qualifying round as Sporting Khalsa make the long trip from the West Midlands.

With the prospect of rewriting the club’s history books with a date against a Football League club in the first round proper, it’s time for Spalding to gain more support from the town.

Traditionally the FA Cup brings out fans across the community who might not have actually been to a game for many years.

But why wait for the possibility of a glamour tie? Get behind the Tulips this evening, cheer them on and hopefully a bigger crowd can inspire the players to produce a match-winning performance.

Saturday was the biggest game in Khalsa’s history and Non-League Day also attracted more fans.

Tonight is a chance to show your support for Spalding.

After all, do you really want to miss out and stay at home to watch TV when they are only offering 
Wales against Andorra in another qualifier which means nothing.

It shouldn’t be too cold this evening and, although you can’t guarantee great action, the entertainment factor must be better than we saw at Khalsa on Saturday afternoon.

Please don’t go along with those ‘supporters’ who believe the FA Cup kicks off in January when Premier League bosses send out reserve teams.

Tonight is what the competition is all about as smaller clubs fight to keep the dreams alive. It could be a magical time for the Tulips so don’t miss it!
