Chasetown FC pay the penalty – twice – in defeat at Spalding United

Two penalties saw Spalding United beat Chasetown FC for the first time ever in a league fixture.

After a scrappy opening quarter, the Scholars drew first blood just before the half hour mark. Josh Ruff turned Tulips skipper Nathan Stainfield and fired a powerful shot past Richard Walton.

But Spalding levelled in the 37th minute through a Lee Beeson penalty after Leon Mettam was sent tumbling by Liam Holt.

Chasetown were a whisker away from regaining the lead with a first time Jack Langston effort that struck the underside of the Spalding crossbar.

The hosts were awarded a second penalty in the 70th minute after Mike Williams tripped Jordan Lemon and Beeson stepped up and converted his second spot kick.

Chasetown were reduced to ten men after Mitch Piggon picked up a second yellow card for dissent.
