Derby date for league rivals

Mid-table Spalding head to second-placed Bourne in the Midlands Three East (South) on Saturday.

Bourne are chasing a sixth successive league win while Spalding will be looking to maintain their fine form which featured a derby victory over Stamford last weekend.

Bourne closed the gap at the top with a hard-fought win at bottom-of-the-table St Neots.


Spalding played Lincoln under floodlights at the new ground, Drain Bank North, on Tuesday night.

Both teams fielded a mix of first And second-team players in heavy rain and a very wet pitch conditions.

Both teams battled hard to play rugby but after 78 minutes with no score and extra-time approaching, Lincoln breached Spalding’s defence for a converted try to go through to the Lincolnshire Cup semi-final.
