Having clinched promotion to the East Premier A League for next season, Spalding men’s first team were hoping for a stroll in their final game against West Herts 2nd.

But they met up with a mid-table team that had been boosted by some of the club’s National League players.

Connor Allen and Stuart Cunnington found the net for Spalding in a closely-contested first half but they found themselves trailing 3-2 at the break.

Deciding that they wanted to finish the season on a high, the lads set about their hosts with a scintillating second-half display by adding five

further goals without reply.

Glenn Richardson, Tom Everton, Rob Dalton, Josh Rowbottom and a second from Allen completed the rout as Spalding ended their successful league season on a high note.
