Spalding Men’s 1’s vs Cambridge Nomad’s 1’s
Spalding looked to secure a 6 point weekend by traveling to Cambridge to play a spirited Nomads side. 
Spalding started the game very strong, with some quick interlinking play, which eventually found Jacob Baker with a lot of time to fire a ball through to Will Baker who professionally slotted the ball around the keeper into the bottom corner. 
Spalding still on the front foot continued to dominate possession. A smart aerial from Stuart Cunnington was picked by Jacob Baker on the oppositions 25, where he found Will Baker, who once again put ball into the back of the Nomads net.
From here Spalding started to struggled to get a grip of the game with Haunch needing to make numerous outstanding saves. Nomads began finding pockets of space where they could exploit the Spalding defense, which led to them eventually scoring a deflection from a crash ball. 
With the first half coming to a close Spalding searched to regain their two goal cushion, and they won themselves a short corner which was expertly dispatched by Cunnington. 
The second half started very scrappy with both teams struggling to control play. A bouncing ball caught the Spalding defence off guard, which lead to a hectic scramble in-front of goalkeeper Haunch and unfortunately despite his best efforts the ball was pushed into the Spalding net. 
With the game sat at 3-2 Spalding dug deep. With relentless work from the defense of Callow, Maplethorpe, Dorey and Morris the score line was secured at the final whistle. 
A special well done to Liam Fravigar with a massive debut performance.
Final score Spalding 3 – 2 Cambridge Nomads
