HOCKEY: Positives in away defeat
Spalding ladies first team suffered a 5-1 defeat to Alford in their first game of the new year.
A fortunate goal came against the run of play and left Spalding behind before a rocket from Ellie Holland got them back in the game.
As Spalding felt unlucky not to finish their chances, Alford capitalised and led 3-1 at half-time.
Amy Wells worked hard throughout the game to regain possession for the away team, who conceded two more goals in their bid to get something back.
Despite the result, Spalding can take positives from the chances they created and will hope to take better advantage of these in the coming games.
Long Sutton drew at home to Pelicans with Lyn Tancred on target.
On Sunday, the men’s first team shared four goals with East London. Josh Baker and Josh Fyson scored for Sutton.
