Spalding United Football Club marked its first anniversary of promoting itself in the community with a fun day at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field.

Youngsters tried out sumo wrestling, played on a bouncy castle and watched the Tulips take on Wyberton in a friendly match.

Club secretary Audrey Fletcher said: “The day was a success in bringing the youth and senior sides of the club together and we had great fun.

“It was also a chance to show the community element of the club and we invited the British Heart Foundation to raise funds.

“The event went off well and most people enjoyed themselves.”
