SPALDING United cruised past Peterborough Northern Star 4-1 in the UCL Premier Division on Monday, while Holbeach United were beaten 2-0 by King’s Lynn Town and Deeping Rangers beat Blackstones 2-0.

In their final home game of the season at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field, doubles from Ben Good and Tom James sunk depleted Star as they finished with a flourish.

It’s a first win in nearly two months for Pat Rayment’s men, who go into their season finale at Holbeach on Wednesday night (7.45pm) in high spirits.

The same can’t be said of the Tigers, who were undone by an early Jason Turner brace at Carter’s Park.

John Chand’s men turned the tables on league leaders Lynn in the second period, but couldn’t get themselves back into the game, as their winless run stretched to six games.

In contrast, Deeping made it 14 league games unbeaten with an Outgang Road success over rivals Blackstones. Alex Beck and Ashley Stevens netted for Tuncay Korkmaz’s men, who are now five points clear of the rest in fourth place.

Down in UCL Division One, Bourne Town were beaten 3-0 at the Abbey Lawn by leaders Huntingdon Town.
