Spalding United are already been talked of as favourites after it was confirmed last night that they will play in the Evo-Stik South next season.

Pat Rayment’s side took the UCL Premier Division by storm last season and the Tulips boss got his wish when they were placed in the southern section rather than the Evo-Stik North.

He said: “I hear were are already being talked of as being the favourites but I am not worried about that bringing added pressure because with the ambition of this club we are always going to have pressure.

“I have been a bit presumptuous when chasing players as I felt we probably would go in the South, so in terms of locality that is where I have focused.

“At least now we know for certain where we will be playing it helps and I am waiting to hear from several players about joining us.

“I don’t have an order of preference, they are all good players so whoever accepts our offers first will be signed and the others may miss out.”
