TULIPS: Second defeat in four days

Have your say

Sheffield FC 2 Spalding United 1: THE Tulips remain in the Evo-Stik League First Division South drop zone after this defeat on Tuesday night.

Fresh off the back of Saturday’s home reverse to Goole, Spalding fell behind to Callum Harrison’s strike on 25 minutes.

The world’s oldest football club then doubled their money in the second period through Matt Roney (58).

Midfielder Jon Jones did pull one back for Richard Scott’s side late on, but it failed to spark a fightback.
