Spalding now host Newbold on Avon of Warwickshire on April 26 for the right to play in the Midlands One East division next season.

Town skipper Harry Sharman said: “There was no chance of us winning the league and now we have four training sessions between now and the play-off.

“When you are winning games convincingly, you can get complacent but against Bakewell, we kept quite a lot of stability and we controlled the game.”
