SKEGNESS United passed two major landmarks last week when they were accepted into the Lincs League and held their first training session since being resurrected.

The club has come a long way in a short time after chairman Geoff Farrar and club captains Mark Hallam and Jason Callaby announced their plans to breathe life back into a side which last played competitively in 1939.

And after hearing they had been accepted to play in the Lincs League next season, the trio wasted no time in announcing their newest signings.

They have picked up ex-Boston United and King’s Lynn man Paul Watts, and ex-Skegness Town and Louth Town player Kurt Crossley.

The pair were unveiled at the first training session last Wednesday evening.

Mark Hallam said: “We are absolutely delighted both players have agreed to become the club’s first signings and we hope the calibre of these players sends out a message of intent.”

Skegness United train at the Wainfleet Playing Fields. Players wanting to try out for the new club should have a minimum of Boston Premier or East Lincs Combination Division One playing experience due to the high calibre of players already committed for the new season.

If you think you have what it takes to play at Lincolnshire League level, the club are eager to hear from you.
