‘My derby memories’

EDITOR - My daughter-in-law brought me a copy of the Standard back from Skegness last week, and I was very interested to read the short article on the back page about Skegness United and Skegness Blue Rovers.

As a boy, living on Burgh Road at the time, I was an ardent supporter of the ‘Blues’ and saw all their home games at their then Lyndhurst Avenue ground.

I wonder if you could tell me the score of the game played against Skegness United and if possible the names of the players of both teams. It would bring back many happy memories.

If I am ever asked which football team I support, I still say Skegness Blue Rovers!

I also remember a team called Skegness Thursday playing at Lyndhurst Avenue.
