Semi-final awaits Town

Skegness Town are back in action on Saturday after a three-week enforced lay-off.

The last time the Lilywhites played they beat neighbours Skegness United in the Supplementary Cup quarter-finals.

They return to action on Saturday in the last four of the same competition after league postponements against Sleaford, Boston and Louth.

The Sleaford and Louth games were called off due to a waterlogged pitch, while Boston defaulted in the other one.

So Town might be excused for being a little rusty going into this semi-final tie at Sleaford (kick-off 2.30pm)

Their opponents, Sleaford Town’s second string, go into the match having beaten CGB Humbertherm 3-1 in the league on March 16. This week they had a useful warm-up scheduled when they were due to entertain Gainsborough Town in the league.

The winners of Saturday’s semi-final will play either Hykeham Town or Lincoln United Reserves in the final on May 4.
