SPALDING RFC: Young guns to fire

Have your say

Spalding RFC v Leighton Buzzard (Saturday, 3pm): TOWN’S talented young guns may get a chance to shine this weekend.

With nothing to lose in their Midlands One East run-in, skipper Harry Sharman is looking to see which of his teenagers can cut the mustard at first team level.

Fresh off the back of a heavy 62-10 hiding from league leaders Syston, Spalding are also aiming to serve up a much-improved performance for the home crowd as their season enters the home stretch.

Sharman said: “It’s strange to say it, but we played some great rugby last weekend despite the score.

“I think we always knew it would be tough, Syston are a side that belong at a higher level.

“We’ve only got a few home games left now, so it’d be nice to get a win on the board this weekend.

“There’s nothing to lose and the aim is to to finish as high as we can. Mid-table would be a fine achievement in our first season at this level.”

One of the youngsters earmarked for Saturday’s Memorial Field tussle is Callum Ross, who Sharman rates as a “cracking prospect”.
