Ben Davison’s double earned three points for Spalding United at promotion-chasing Alvechurch.

A looping header from the edge of the penalty box put the Tulips in front, only to concede on the hour mark from Ashley Carter’s free-kick.

Davison nodded home a corner with seven minutes left and Carter was sent off.

The result lifts Spalding into 13th place in the Evo-Stik South as Alvechurch slip to fourth.

Meanwhile, Deeping Rangers dropped 11 points behind leaders Yaxley with four games in hand in the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division title race.

The Clarets were held 1-1 at home to relegation-threatened Oadby Town who went in front through Harry Allcock. A last-minute equaliser by Scott Mooney earned a point.

Fifth-placed Holbeach United lost 3-1 at Desborough Town.

Jason Turner’s early header was followed by his second-half penalty for Ar Tarn.

Lewis Leckie pulled one back but Will Arnold found the top corner of the Tigers’ net.

Bourne Town moved up to eighth in Division One thanks to a five-star display.

They thrashed Irchester United with first-half goals by Zak Munton, Dan Schiavi (2), Jacob Smitheringale and Adam Rothery. The Romans pulled one back with 11 minutes left.

Pinchbeck United’s lead is eight points with two games in hand after the trip to Thrapston Town was called off because the Northamptonshire club claimed they were unable to field a team.
