Sleaford Town suffered their third consecutive defeat in the UCL Premier League at the weekend, their second game in a row without scoring.

Town lost 3-0 at home to Thurnby Nirvana on Saturday, conceding all the goals in the second half.

Yesterday (Tuesday) evening, they were due to take on third-placed Yaxley at home.

At the time of writing, Town are placed 16th in the table of 21, but have played more games than any other team - three more than the team immediately below them and seven more than the team below them.

Chairman Brian Rowland said: “We are not in a good position in the league. There are a lot of teams who haven’t played as many games as 
us.”

He said he had faith in the team’s future, though.

“I’m not worried. I think we will turn the corner.”

Sleaford Town received a donation of £1,000 this week from Sleaford’s Carre’s Grammar School.

The money was raised through the school’s annual sponsored walk and was given as a thank you to the club for allowing the school to use its facilities when needed.

Chairman Brian Rowland said: “It’s very much appreciated.”
