Have your say

The fight for survival is over and Spalding want to finish the season on a high.

The campaign ends at Memorial Field on Saturday against Coalville who are one place and three points above them in the Midlands Two East (North).

Spalding’s battle against relegation was completed in last weekend’s 29-5 victory at rock-bottom Bakewell Mannerians.

They moved eight points clear of Mansfield in the drop zone with only five points available in the last game.

Spalding captain Sam Cooke said: “We did exactly what we needed to do.

“In the first half we got five tries for a bonus point so that was job done and we were more than happy with the performance.

“In the second half we were probably a little bit laboured but we achieved what we set out to do.

“Everyone has pulled together and hopefully we will be better prepared next season.

“We don’t want to be fighting for survival again. The pressure is off now.”
