Spennymoor Town claimed their fourth consecutive win and closed the gap on the top two in National League North with victory over Boston United.

Jason Ainsley’s side are now seven points behind leaders Chorley and three off second-placed Stockport.

Glen Taylor continued his fine form in front of goal with his 23rd strike of the season coming in the second half to edge out Boston, who remain 11th.

Meanwhile in National League South, Billericay moved up to fifth with a 3-2 win over Slough Town.

In freezing temperatures, Moses Emmanuel gave the home side the lead in the 40th minute, but Ben Harris quickly equalised for Slough before half-time.

Joe Kizzi put Ricay back in front soon after the break and then Adam Coombes extended their lead with a superb free-kick from 30 yards that crashed in off the underside of the crossbar.

Harris netted his second of the night late on as snow fell at the New Lodge, but Billericay held on for back-to-back wins.

It capped a perfect few days for the Essex-based side after Billericay Ladies recorded the club’s highest-ever scoreline on Sunday by beating Rayleigh Town 31-0.
