Convincing win moves Burgh up to third place

Chapel Swifts 4

Burgh Town 7

BURGH played their last league game of the season away to local rivals Chapel.

A win for either team would mean them climbing the league, and it was Burgh who ran out convincing winners to finish the season in third place.

Burgh started well, and after only 10 minutes Liles opened the scoring before Chapel could settle, and Lonslow got his first of the game to put Burgh two up after 15 minutes.

Against the run of play, Chapel pulled one back with a free kick, but Burgh responded well when Liles linked up with Courtney to get his second.

Chapel were given another lifeline, and after a mix up in the Burgh defence Chapel got their second.

Burgh continued to take the game to Chapel and in the space of five minutes Lonslow got his second and Liles got his hat-trick.

The goal of the game came just before half time, and after some good play in the Burgh midfield Lonslow was put through to smash home his hatrick to make it 6-2 to Burgh at half time.

The second half started with Chapel pressing Burgh, and after a sustained period of pressure, they pulled another goal back.

Burgh were struggling in the conditions and not playing like they had in the first half, and after Chapel got their fourth goal, it finally woke Burgh up again.

Man of the match Liles put the result safe, and after beating two players, his low drive caught the keeper unaware to get his fourth and give Burgh the deserved three points.

Manager Gary Edgley expressed thanks to those involved who have supported Burgh Town this season, and also thanked sponsors Jacksons Builders (Skegness), Max Waxman (Red Lion), Stuart Hall (Gunby Inn), and Bob Holmes (Holmes Butchers).

Burgh Town: Craig Parry, Stuart Hall, Max Foreman, Vern Bee, Dan Wager, James Chritchlow, John Courtney, Ryan Whittle, Karl Minor (capt), Troy Lonslow, Aaron Liles, Aaron North.
