United set to face Conference’s Lincoln City during friendlies

SKEGNESS United FC begin their triple-header of home friendly fixtures this coming Saturday against Hallam FC from the Northern Counties East League.

And the club has moved to thank Skegness Academy after their generosity made the games possible.

Due to maintenance work going on at Wainfleet Road, United were are unable to play any home friendly fixtures until the Skegness Academy offered their facilities, allowing United to host Hallam FC, Lincoln City FC and Radford FC on the Academy field.

United Chairman Geoff Farrar said: “We are very grateful to Mr Hornsby and the Academy for allowing us to use their facilities.

“The kind gesture of support is a great example of community spirit and we just hope the people of Skegness now get behind the team in attending these high profile encounters, in particular, Tuesdays encounter against the regions premier team.”

This coming Saturday, United host Hallam FC at 3pm followed on Tuesday, July 24 by Conference side Lincoln City, who will be bringing their first team to town for a 7pm kick-off.

Radford FC, from the East Midlands Counties League, will complete the triple bill on the following Saturday (July 28) again at 3pm, as United aim to test themselves against tough opposition in preparation for the new season.

Entry to the games can be made through the Academy carpark and will cost £2 for adults and £1 for children and concessions, although under fives will gain free entry.

There will be refreshments available at each of the matches and all club officials, players and management will retreat to the The Welcome Inn after the games.

“This is a great opportunity for the people of Skegness to see top class opposition on their own doorstep against the towns premier team,” said a club spokesperson.

“It would be a great advert for Skegness to see a huge turnout of people attend the games and get behind the United team. We hope to see you there.”
