TULIPS: Thrashed again during limp towards end of season

Have your say

Spalding Utd 0 Leek Town 4

THE Tulips took another heavy defeat in front of their home fans on Saturday.

A superb second-half Anthony Malbon hat-trick - completed with a quite brilliantly executed goal - was the highlight of a routine away win for Leek.

Man-of-the-match Malbon had set up Leigh Skellern to open the scoring just before half time.

To add further to another miserable afternoon for the Tulips:

• captain Gary Pawson had to be substituted after just three minutes with a jarred knee

• Shepshed Dynamo’s 2-1 win at Glapwell makes it even more unlikely that Andy Stanhope’s side will avoid finishing bottom of the Evo-Stik Division One South League table.
