Spalding United have brought in two more youngsters from Lincoln City’s academy.

James Hugo joined the Tulips on Boxing Day to play at left wing-back in boss Chris Rawlinson’s new-look system.

Spalding have now added Red Imps goalkeeper Michael Antkowiak and striker Luke White on work experience loans.

However, they are not allowed to include all three youngsters in any matchday squad.

Rawlinson said: “They will help with numbers when we have players unavailable.

“The goalkeeper is very highly rated and the striker is a good finisher.

They will give us options during a busy period – if the games go ahead!

Tuesday night’s fixture at home to second-placed Frickley Athletic in the Evo-Stik South has been postponed.

Meanwhile, Spalding drew 3-3 at Quorn on Friday night in an under-21 friendly. Haydn Havard (2) and George Couzens were on target.
