Match Report 
Ely City 3-5 Spalding 
It was a rapid start which saw Pete Wright score in the second minute thanks to a brilliant pass by Andy Barlow and it was two shortly after when Dave Burrell found Danny Wright to slot home. Ely showed spirit and with a quick fire double of clinical finishes. However on the stroke of half time Dave Burrell scored. Ely then equalised 45 minutes in to go level with a reverse stick finish. Then Peter Wright score in a one on one to retake the lead. The lead was then doubled through Dave Burrell scoring a scrappy goal which saw the ball trickle in. It was an impressive defensive display to see out the last ten minutes with just a few impressive saves needing to be made by an outstanding Eddie Sawyer. When Simon Goode managed to stay on his feet he was very strong at the back. Good clearances by Ed Sly and Kev Sawyer helped keep the ball away from the goal for large periods of the match while all of the wingers helped spread the game into more space. Overall a great result for a team which has now picked up 13 points out of a possible 15.
