Tom Roberts knows that Holbeach United versus Spalding United will never be your average friendly.
Despite the Tulips sitting one division higher these days, the Tigers boss believes there will definitely be some spark on the turf in tonight’s pre-season fixture at Carter’s Park (7.45pm kick-off).
“Spalding is still a derby match,” explained the former Tulips keeper.
“It’s a pre-season game but there is still pride at stake for a lot of local lads.
“We’ve got players like Adam Jackson and Jamie Stevens who have played for Spalding so it is always a game they will want their team to win.”
