Peterborough Northern Star v SUFC

On Saturday 4th May, Spalding United completed their 2012/13 UCL Premier Division campaign with an away trip to the Focus Community Centre, home of Peterborough Northern Star. Knowing only a victory would suffice if they were to stand any chance of overhauling promotion rivals, St Ives Town (who lead the Tulips by a single point ahead of their away fixture at Shepshed Dynamo the same Saturday) the good people of Spalding hoped their team could go all-out and turn on the style, grit and determination that has served them so well, so many times before this season. The players duly obliged, beating PNS handsomely by 3-0 but sadly, their opponents in the UCL Knockout Cup Final 48 hours later (St Ives Town!?) did what they had to, securing a 1-0 win at Shepshed with a goal eight minutes from time (after the home side had a man sent off for two bookable cautions)…
