Visiting Wisbech Ladies’ Third team, Spalding Ladies’ Seconds showed no mercy, finding the back of the net 13 times without reply.

From the opening whistle everything seemed to flow better for Spalding than it had the previous week.

Quick intelligent passing led to an early goal from Eva Keyes, which set the mood of the game.

Plenty of opportunities were created and most of these were taken by Spalding.

Further goals came from Zoe Moore, Ellie Holland, Ellie Pybus, Lauren Pitts and Lucy Simpson put Spalding well in control.

Amy Martin showed her strength and determination with some powerful strikes across the D and there was some intelligent play from Sally Pilgrim.

Keyes went on to score five goals, and there was a brace apiece for Simpson and Samantha Foston.

Spalding Ladies’ Thirds faced formidable opponents in the shape of Leadenham Ladies’ Firsts on Saturday.

A young, very strong Leadenham side applied early pressure and Spalding’s defence had to work hard to keep them at bay.

Spalding goalkeeper Christina Dewing produced some superb saves to keep the score-line to 0-1 at half time.  

In the second half Spalding came out stronger but, although they spent more time in attack in the second half, they were unable to capitalise.

Leadenham scored a second goal from a short corner with just five minutes remaining to secure a 2-0 win.

Lauren Spenceley was Spalding’s player of the match for her positional play and impressive work rate.
