TULIPS: 2011 begins with defeat

Spalding United 0 Glapwell 2: THE Tulips kicked off 2011 with a narrow home loss on New Year’s Day.

Andrew Tidswell went closest for Spalding a goalless opening period, before the visitors took the lead through Connor Higginson’s hooked effort on 47 minutes.

Jon Jones and Tidswell both threatened to level matters, but Glapwell sealed the points with a last-gasp Ian Holmes effort.
