TULIPS: Late Beck strike pegs back Spalding

Have your say

BOSTON TOWN 2 (Bull 44, Beck 85) SPALDING UNITED (Smith 2 & 41): GREG Smith hit a debut double at Tattershall Road on Tuesday night – but the Tulips were forced to settle for a draw.

Signed from Corby Town on Monday, Smith fired Spalding into a 2-0 lead with strikes on two and 41 minutes, but veteran hitman Gary Bull pulled one back before half time.

Andy Stanhope’s charges looked like they’d hang on for a second UCL Premier Division win in as many games, but ex-Holbeach United ace Alex Beck buried a late leveller to ensure the spoils were shared.
