Cup Exit

  Wednesday 18th March 2015

Last Saturday saw us knocked out of the Challenge Cup by a determined Hykeham side. Without doubt that was one of our strongest performances of the season and we can be proud of each and every single player there. Against a side who are one of the favourites to win the league this year, we battled and pushed. A fantastic finish from Kurt saw the scores draw level and put Hykeham on the back foot.  We continued to push but unfortunately couldn't deliver the killer blow.  At the other end our defence held strong against a battling Hykeham front line. The fact that MotM was shared by Kyle and Ross at the back shows the nature of the game. We can leave the competition with our helds held high and knowing we took our victors to the very last kick of the game with their goal coming right at the death.


Kurt Crossley Reaches 100

  Tuesday 17th February 2015

Kurt Crossley Reaches 100

Last Saturday saw our club captain Kurt Crossley become the first United player to reach a milestone 100 appearances for the club.  In that time he's scored 87 goals which is an incredible ratio. Goals which have contributed to League and Cup success since our formation in 2011. He has been a leader on and off the pitch for players and is an inspiration for players and supporters alike.  From all at Skegness United FC, congratulations Kurt!


Footgolf Tournament

Footgolf Tournament

This Sunday, Skegness United took on Skegness Town at the opening of The Elms Golf Centre in Wainfleet new Footgolf facility. What proved to be a thoroughly entertaining morning saw both teams pitted against each other in a friendly battle. The final hole saw Skegness Town walk away as winners but without a doubt the event itself proved to be a huge success. Photos to follow...

Merry Christmas to All

  Monday 22nd December 2014

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our players, committee and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Our first match of 2015 is a very tricky tie away to Wyberton. They have proved to be a very strong side this season and we expect a tough challenge there.


Top of the League

  Sunday 14th December 2014

Saturday's resounding 4-1 win away at Louth Town takes us to the top of the Sills & Betteridge League for the first time this season. Although we are on top through goal difference, that is where we are. We have some very tough games ahead including a visit to Horncastle next week.

The top of the table is very tight with ourselves, Skegness Town and a couple of other teams fighting for the top spot. It's going to be a very close season!


Football Remembers

  Monday 08th December 2014

Football Remembers

This weekend we took part in the Football Remembers campaign to celebrate the 1914 Christmas truce. We, along with our opposition - CGB Humbertherm took the field for a picture to mark 100 years since the event. Thanks to Humbertherm for joining us.


Derby Day - Honours Even

  Saturday 29th November 2014

The first Derby Day of the season saw both sides battle out a draw at a muddy Burgh Rd. In the end the result was probably fair with a goal in either half to share the points. The result sees us up to 2nd in the league just behind Town but there's all to play for. Both sides have dificult games to come but there is still a long way to go!

It also is worth noting how great it was to have Assistant Manager, Jason Smith back in the dugout today!


News Coming Soon...

  Monday 20th October 2014

Behind the scenes (for approximately 12 months), we have been working on a new project which will open an exciting new chapter in Skegness United FC history. At this point we are still finalising details and will publish more information when we are able to - but that time is fast approaching!


Race Night in October

  Tuesday 09th September 2014

Race Night in October

We are pleased to announce we will be holding one of our ever-popular Race Nights on 16th October in Churchills. As always, this promises to be a fun night with a chance to win some money!

Our previous race night events have been a great success and we look to continue this. You can sponsor a race or a horse or simply come along for the fun - all are welcome! Tickets will be available from any of the United committee members and also on match days from the food outlet. We look forward to seeing you all there!


Emphatic Win

  Monday 01st September 2014

Saturday saw us record our top score of the season and produce a performance to be remembered. From the first 30 seconds through to the final whistle, United held control of the game and the score could so easily have been more but for the crossbar and some fine saves. We dominated possession in a match where we fielded a strong team against opposition coming off a 4-0 win. We knew Rasen Town would be confident following their win last week but it took only a few minutes for us to find gaps in their defence and capitalise.  An excellent performance all round which keeps us second in the league, continuing a good start to the season.

We travel to Humbertherm next week for what will promise to be a tricky tie. CGB Humbertherm have historically proved to be a diificult side to play against and we expect no different this coming week.


Positive Start So Far

  Tuesday 26th August 2014

The season is underway and as it stands, we're in second place behind our cross-town rivals Skegness Town. An emphatic win against Louth Town kicked off our season in a match which, in the end only yielded 3 goals but could so easily have been many more. On the offensive for most of the match, we did what was needed to take all three points against a strong Louth side.

Our next encounter proved to be yet another tough match against Horncastle Town. Over the past three seasons, the matches between both sides have been tough affairs with very little between both teams - this match proved to be no different. A final score of 2-2 saw the points shared.


New Season Is Upon Us

  Tuesday 29th July 2014

New Season Is Upon Us

After what seems like an eternity, the new 2014.15 season is almost upon us. The dates have been released (and can be found on the fixtures page) and we're ready to go. We have already played some pre-season fixtures with some excellent results and perfomrances to match. Both the 1st and Reserve side are prepared and ready to go!


We Did It!

  Friday 21st March 2014

Well.. we did it! In our final match of the season we faced a strong (as they always are) Cleethorpes Town Res side in what promised to be a tight match between two determined sides. The reality certainly lived up to the expectation!

United took the early lead through a piece of magic from Ryan who managed to turn the defender before firing home from 20 yds. A fantastic start for United. Great work from Ryan, Kurt and Luke proved to be a thorn in the Cleethorpes side as they continued to press for another goal. The game was at times end-to-end with both teams battling for the opening but both defences stood strong. The United backline were as always working well together, it was going to take a piece of great play or luck to break through. In the end it was a combination of both that allowed Clee the break.

Sad Day In Our Club History

  Wednesday 19th February 2014

Sad Day In Our Club History

It is with great regret that we announce the passing of our Chairman, Geoff Farrar. Geoff was first and foremost, a friend to everyone who knew him. A great man who will be greatly missed by all. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

As a mark of respect we will have a minute remembrance before the game this Saturday away at Cleethorpes.
