Skegness FC 3

Donington 1

SKEGNESS FC went into a game without leading goal scorer Liles, for the second week in a row, against a Donington team who have only lost once this season and that was to Skegness FC!

In a scrappy opening 15 minutes, it was Donington who scored first, when a deflected shot gave Simpson no chance.

Skegness responded straight away, and Chapplehow’s cross was met by Lonslow; his header hitting the bar, but the rebound fell straight to Reid to prod home his first of the game.

More chances fell to Skegness – Howard fired over after good work by Russell, and Chapplehow missed after another lung-busting run and cross by Lonslow.

The second half saw Richardson replace the injured Chapplehow and Fairburn replaced the hard working Wager, and in manager Edgley’s absence, assistant manager John Barker had to re-shuffle his team.

The back four of Richardson, Bee, captain Minor, and man of the match Muirhead, were in their usual dominate form, not giving the Donington front line a chance.

This allowed the midfield of Lyal, Russell, Howard and Lonslow the freedom to push forward.

It seemed a matter of time before Skegness would get their second, and with 20 minutes to go, Muirehead’s 40-yard through ball to Reid caused panic between the Donington centre half and his keeper, as he knocked it in for an own goal.

This deflated Donington and after Lonslow hit the post and Reid had a snap shot well saved, the goal of the game came to seal the much deserved win.

Howard again pulled the strings in the midfield, and sent a through ball to Reid who walked through the Donington defence before calmly slotting the ball past the keeper for his fifth goal in the last two games.

John Barker gave man of the match to Muirhead, who is proving to be one the best signings for Skegness.

Skegness FC: D Simpson, J Lyal, R Muirhead, K Minor (capt), V Bee, K Chapplehow (M Richardson), A Russell, M Howard (M Smith), T Lonslow, D Wager (J Fairburn), D Ried.

U16s Mid Lincs cup

Spilsby u16s 3

Louth Old Boys 2

SPILSBY travelled to Louth to play Louth Old Boys in the second round of the under 16s Mid Lincs cup.

Spilsby were dominant in the first half, creating many chances, but the score remained goalless at half time

Ten minutes into the second half and Louth Old boys scored, and just seconds after their first, they netted again with a penalty kick to make it 2-0.

Not liking the prospect of a defeat, Spilsby picked up and started to fight back, with Ryan Hall scoring their first goal to make it 2-1.

This was followed by a second goal, from Ricky Herberts, which brought the scores level at 2-2.

Ricky Herberts was in great and he scored again with a 30-yard strike to make it 3-2 to Spilsby.

There was lots of good tackling and defending by the Spilsby team, and they ran out winners of a well played match.

Spilsby U16s: Ricky Herberts (capt), Ben Leddle (keeper), Jordan Smith, Curtis Redford, Joe Epton, Jack Middleton, Casey Smith, Ryan Hall, Coner Carse, Jack Wadner, Ady Piekorz.
