SUFC v Guernsey

On Saturday 9th February 2013, Spalding United hosted Guernsey FC in the 5th Round of the 2012/13 FA Vase. It was, without doubt, one of the biggest games in the club’s recent history! Having disposed of Ely City away from home in Round 4 the Tulips were looking to put Tuesday night’s heartbreaking penalty shoot-out loss to Holbeach United (in the Semi-Final of the Lincs FA Senior Trophy) behind them as they sought to recapture the scintillating form which had served them so well for the majority of this season. They started so well, scoring after 16 minutes and for a time it looked as though this small-town team from rural Lincolnshire might just reach the Quarter-Finals of one of the country’s most prestigious non-league competitions… Sadly Guernsey, having equalised on the stroke of half-time and scored two further goals in quick succession after the break, ultimately proved too strong on the day, leaving everyone connected with the Tulips to dream of a better run next year!…
