United manager frustrated after game called off

Skegness United were left kicking their heels on Saturday as a waterlogged pitch at Wainfleet Road led to the postponement of their Lincolnshire League game against Ruston Sports.

Manager Mark Hallam said: “It’s very frustrating losing another game to the weather but more importantly losing the opportunity to bounce back after a poor performance in the Town derby.

“The players know they let themselves and their fans down so they were very much looking forward to responding this week.

“It’s a massive month for this football club as we know seven wins out of our last 11 games will guarantee us the league title in only our second season since our re-formation.”

Six of United’s next seven games are away from home so they certainly have their work cut out in the coming weeks.

However, after winning their last 12 league games in a row they have put themselves in a fantastic position going into the business end of the season.

Skegness United’s remaining fixtures are as follows: March 16 v Lincoln United Reserves (a); March 23 v Heckington United (a); March 30 v Louth Town Reserves (a); April 1 v Heckington United (h); April 4 v Humbertherm (a); April 6 v Ruston Sports (a); April 13 v Hykeham Town (a); April 20 v Gainsborough Town (a); April 25 v Skegness Town (h); April 27 v Boston United Reserves (h).

They also have an unplaced home game against Ruston Sports to rearrange following its postponement on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Skegness United held their second annual “Race Night” on Saturday night at Churchills Sports & Winebar in Skegness.

The club wishes to thank all those that attended what was a truly fantastic evening and special thanks go to Paul Farrell and his staff for their “wonderful hosting of the event”.
