Skegness FC 3, Skegness WMC 1

SKEGNESS FC welcomed local rivals Skegness WMC in their second league meeting of the season.

The game started at a frantic pace and it was FC who got the first goal after 10 minutes.

Lonslow’s cross was only partly cleared to Critchlow whose low drive went into the bottom corner.

FC’s second goal arrived on 20 minutes when Hardy smashed the ball home after some good work by Akers and Liles.

Skegness FC looked in control but after Reed missed a good chance WMC broke away and the impressive Rayner was bought down in the box.

Verhaul stepped up to take the penalty and sent Simpson the wrong way to make it 2-1.

This spurred the WMC on as they looked for an equaliser. Lyal and man of the match Muirhead made last ditch tackles and when WMC did break through, Simpson made some good saves to keep the score at 2-1 at half time.

Skegness FC regained control of the game but a couple of saves kept WMC in the game.

FC made it three when substitute Courtney passed to Liles who hit the ball first time into the bottom corner.

Skegness FC are at home (Wainfleet RD) this Saturday. Kick-off at 2.30pm.

D. Simpson, J. Lyal, R. Muirhead, K. Minor (captain) (M. English) V. Bee, M. Hardy, J. Akers, J. Critchlow, T. Lonslow, (J. Fairburn), D. Reed (J. Courtney), A. Liles.
