SPALDING RFC begin their preparations for the new season with two home warm-up matches on successive Saturdays.
First up for Town at the Memorial Field are Peterborough Lions this Saturday. The Lions just missed out on promotion at the end of last season, which would have seen them sharing the same stage as Spalding this season.
The following week Harry Sharman’s Spalding are up against Kettering – who will be familiar foes for Town having played in the same league as them last year, finishing three places higher.
Both friendly fixtures get under way at 3pm, with Spalding then kicking off the Midlands One (East) season away at Ilkeston on September 3.
