Spalding player-coach and captain celebrate 'fantastic achievement' after winning Midlands RFU Senior Vase
Spalding captain Dan Adams and player-coach Harry Sharman took time out from their side's celebrations to reflect on a "fantastic achievement" for the club.
The Elephants' previous best in the RFU (Rugby Football Union) national knock-out competition for clubs playing at level eight had been a quarter-final spot in 2008.
But Saturday's hard-fought win at Midlands Three East (South) rivals Dunstablians leaves Adams, Sharman and their team-mates just one game away from an appearance at Twickenham where the national final is to be played in May.
