Spalding Tigers continued their hot streak today with a come-from-behind 2-1 win against Norton United in EvoStik Division One South action at Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field.

Goals by Tom Waumsley, his sixth in three matches, and Jack McGovern helped the Tulips avenge their FA Cup exit at the hands of the Staffordshire side in September - with the same scoreline.

Meanwhile, it was a case of high-fives for Holbeach United in the UCL Premier Division who came from a goal down to beat Harborough Town 5-1.

Two goals each for Livo Dube and Jamie Clarke were added to by a Lee Beeson strike.

But Deeping Rangers threw away a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 at home to Wellingborough United.

Goals by Charlie Coulson, David Burton-Jones and Jezz Goldson-Williams looked like giving Rangers their fifth win in a row, in all competitions.

But despite having goalkeeper Aaron Bellairs sent off, Wellingborough scored three times in half an hour to gain an unlikely point.

In UCL Division One, Bourne Town’s game at Rothwell Corinthians was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

Finally in rugby union, Spalding’s miserable season in the Midlands One East division continued with a 95-0 hammering at Old Northamptonians in what was Town’s heaviest defeat of the season so far.
