First half goals from Bert Snaith and Adam Tempest secured three points for Old Leake against Skegness Town’s second string.

Despite making a better fist of it after the break, the seasiders were not able to haul themselves level and the home side hung on to claim the spoils.

Snaith opened the scoring for Old Leake as the Lilywhites struggled to come to terms with the heavy conditions.

Tempest added a second before the break.

Skegness gave a better account of themselves in the second half, but found their Lincolnshire League keeper James Lambley in fine form for the home side.

Indeed had it not been for the goalkeepers - Lambley and Town’s Dan Simpson - the game could have finished 9-9.

Simpson was particularly outstanding for the visitors as he kept his side in the game with a string of fine saves. One effort was particularly magical as he tipped a Snaith header onto the cross bar.

At the other end Lambley did well to keep out a fierce 20-yard drive from Lucky Singh and the follow-up from Liam Papworth was diverted inches wide.

With ten minutes left Papworth appeared to have halved the deficit, but despite beating Lambley, his lob was cleared off the line.
