Plenty of matches take place at Spalding Rugby Club





It was a very busy weekend of rugby at at Centenary Park despite Spalding's first team not having a game on Saturday.

Under the floodlights on Friday night, the Colts team produced a brilliant performance to defeat Lincoln 76-5 in the NLD Colts League.

They have won their last five league games, scoring 205 points with just 36 points conceded, and are becoming the top team in the Three Counties division.

Spalding Nomads continued the winning streak on Saturday as the club's second team recorded a 50-0 victory against a side from Lincoln.

They set the wheels in motion from kick-off as Aron Brundle raced through to open the scoring with a converted try.

However, Lincoln started to threaten but good approach play by Spalding after 16 minutes saw Miguel da Silva go over the line and 10 minutes later, from the halfway line, he grabbed his second try of the afternoon.

Spalding started to open up Lincoln's defence with their fluent play and a backs move started by young Callum Fergus, who would be man of the match, was continued by Conall Mason and his offload gave Jack Grundy a simple run in.

This was followed five minutes before half-time by Mason cutting a superb angled run, slicing through Lincoln's defence, and Grundy was on hand to grab his second try.

With the referee about to blow his half-time whistle, Alex Worth made a clear break and released Aron Pooley to bring up the half-time score of 36-0.

Shortly after the restart, with Spalding clearly dominating, Callum Fergus found full-back Fergue McKerracher with a good pass and he sailed over the line.

Ten minutes later, he also bagged his brace of tries with a simple walk in at which point the referee blew for the end of the game, which was becoming rather one-sided.

Meanwhile, on the adjacent pitch, Spalding Veterans were entertaining their Stamford counterparts who had run out easy winners at their ground a couple of weeks earlier.

But this time it was a different story on Saturday with the home team running out 46-20 winners.

To round the weekend off on Sunday at Centenary Park, the Under 14s had a good win against Oundle, the Under 13s lost narrowly to a very good team from Holt and the Under 15s entertained Market Rasen for a training game while all the Mini squads played Wisbech.

Spalding's first team return to Counties 1 Midlands East (South) action on Saturday with a trip to Old Laurentians.
