TOUGH TASK: Spalding RFC were beaten again on Saturday.

More misery for basement boys Spalding RFC

Spalding RFC’s tough start to life back in Midlands One East continued on Saturday as they were handed a 44-10 home reverse by fellow strugglers Huntingdon and District.

The Memorial Field defeat is Town’s fourth defeat in as many games – and they are the only side in the division who are yet to collect a point.

More worryingly for Spalding, three of those defeats have come at home.

They have a chance to rectify that next Saturday, though, as they welcome fifth-placed Ilkeston to the Memoriall Field (3pm).

Saturday’s results

Midlands One East: Bugbrooke 53 Belgrave 22; Derby 17 Bedford Athletic 29; Ilkeston 9 Paviors 8; Kettering 17 Old Northamptonians 12; Mansfield 38 Newark 29; Market Rasen & Louth 12 Syston 20; Spalding RFC 10 Huntingdon & District 44.
