Goal crazy United surge up the table

Lincolnshire League

Lincoln Moorlands Res 0

Skegness United 6

SKEGNESS started perfectly in the first minute, when Paul Watts controlled the ball well on the edge of the area and shot left-footed into the bottom corner to open the scoring.

United dominated but didn’t add to their tally until the half-hour when great inter-play down the left between Ben Drysdale and Arron Scutt resulted in the latter crossing for Andy Reeson to fire home on the run with a stunning half-volley.

Within five minutes of the restart, Kurt Crossley increased the lead when he cut in from the right hand side and danced past three defenders before beating the keeper with ease.

Paul Watts then brought the ball down fantastically on the edge of the area, turning three defenders in the process, and fired powerfully past the home keeper to make it 4-0.

At this point, United looked like they could score every time they went forward.

A minute later Paul Watts secured his hat-trick from the penalty spot after Kurt Crossley was fouled.

Three minutes later, United had six on the board when Starkey played a neat pass for Crossley, who lobbed the keeper with a first time effort as he rushed from his line.

It was another great goal that capped a great afternoon of exciting, attacking football from United, who have now scored 19 goals in their last three games.

United have moved up to fourth in the league and have the chance to take third spot if they can beat Sleaford Town at Elsaforde Park on Tuesday night, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Skegness United: Danny Stevens, Jason Callaby, Ben Drysdale, Kyle McGuigan, Joby Gowshall, (Mark Hallam), Ben Davison, Andy Reeson, Callum Hyland (Dan Starkey), Paul Watts, Arron Scutt, Kurt Crossley.
