The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK NPL NORTH & SOUTH - By Ray Tucker

A FRUS­TRAT­ING en­counter for many with chances cre­ated and missed at ei­ther end, but a game where the two goal­keep­ers were ex­cel­lent.

Spalding, vic­to­ri­ous in their pre­vi­ous five matches, opened brightly with some good move­ments and close shaves, but it was Kidsgrove who were near­est to scor­ing with two free head­ers – one of which was cleared from the line by Paul Walker.

Spalding’s on-loan keeper Richard Wal­ton’s re­flexes were fully tested to deny Lee Pick­er­ill.

At the other end, Chris Martin dealt with ev­ery­thing Spalding threw at him and did par­tic­u­larly well to save Jack Wightwick’s 25-yard drive at full stretch as the game en­tered its clos­ing stages.
