First Pre-Seaons game ends in a win for United

  Friday 15th July 2016

Excellent first pre-season match last night against a young, strong Sutton team. A few new faces and some familiar faces ran out 5-2 winners in an end-to-end game. The United goals coming from Jack Bradley and Alex Forster on their respective debuts, the other goals coming from Elliot Clark, Dom Murray-Parris and Tom Pickett.

A fantastic team performance against a Sutton side who will perform well in their league this season. Both sides were a mixture of youth and experience with some wonderful flowing football played by both sides.

An Excellent Article by Tony Incenzo on Non-League Finals Day

  Thursday 07th April 2016


by Tony Incenzo of talkSPORT Radio
(Twitter: @TonyIncenzo)

I would like to call upon all football followers to support Non-League Finals Day at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, May 22 2016:

The FA Vase – Final
Hereford v Morpeth Town (12.15pm)

The FA Trophy – Final
FC Halifax Town v Grimsby Town (4.15pm)

I passionately believe that this is a major step forward in how the FA Trophy and FA Vase Finals are marketed. It should be possible to bring the whole Non-League community together for a glorious day of celebration at Wembley.

I have been an avid follower of Non-League football for more than 40 years. I grew up in North-West London and I used to watch my local teams – Hendon, Barnet and the old Finchley FC – whenever I could as a school kid.

Nowadays, my diet of attending Non-League football mainly consists of groundhopping. But I always try to take in the major Finals at Wembley.

Over the last couple of seasons however, I have been very disappointed with the attendances at those showpiece games…

2014…18,120 for the FA Trophy Final, Cambridge United v Gosport Borough
2015…14,585 for the FA Trophy Final, North Ferriby v Wrexham

2014…5,431 for the FA Vase Final, Sholing v West Auckland Town
2015…9,674 for the FA Vase Final, North Shields v Glossop North End

Now compare these figures to the record crowds for the respective Finals:

53,262 at 2007 FA Trophy Final, Stevenage Borough v Kidderminster Harriers

36,232 at 2007 FA Vase Final, Truro City v AFC Totton

Yes I know there was special interest in 2007 as it was the first year that the Finals returned to the re-built Wembley Stadium. But even so, there has been an alarming decline in crowds since then.

It must have been getting towards the point where it is no longer viable to stage these Finals at the national stadium – especially the FA Vase. That would be a great shame for the players and supporters of the participating teams.

Therefore I would like to see every club that participates in the overall FA Trophy and Vase competitions attempting to sell 50 tickets each and running a coach to Non-League Finals Day at Wembley.

A total of 276 teams took part in the 2015/16 FA Trophy competition with 572 in the FA Vase. If they all sold 50 tickets each, it would bring 40,000-plus to the Finals Day on top of the supporters of the respective finalists and other neutrals.

I can hear people now saying: “Our club couldn’t sell 50 tickets!” Well even the smallest of Non-League clubs have 50 people involved – first team and reserve players, committee, supporters and WAGS. The ticket prices are very attractive and you would definitely enjoy a great day out!

Anyway, those are my ideas. Let’s embrace and boost the FA Trophy and Vase Finals. The alternative is losing their traditional place at the national stadium due to a lack of interest.

Venue Change

  Thursday 17th March 2016

The venue for our match against Hykeham this coming Saturday 19th March will be Skegness Grammar School. Kick off time remains unchanged, only the location. This promises to be an excellent fixture on a fantastic surface!

Challenge Cup Semi-Final and League

  Wednesday 16th March 2016

Our 1st team take on the runaway champions from last season in the semi-final of the Challenge Cup this Saturday. This is sure to be a tight affair with both sides looking to progress to the final where the winners will face Sleaford Town Res. Kick off is at 2:30 this Saturday at Wainfleet Rd.

Our Development squad continue their push for league honours when they welcome Marshchapel Res. This game will be played at Marsh Lane, Burgh as in previous games.

Come along to support our sides in these two crucial fixtures.

My Love of Non-League Football

  Monday 11th January 2016

The following is an article by Tony Incenzo (@tonyincenzo) from TalkSport Radio on why he loves non-league football.  He's kindly given us permission to include the article as it pretty uch sums up the feelings of anyone watching football at this level.  Thanks Tony!


by Tony Incenzo of talkSPORT Radio
(twitter: @TonyIncenzo)

I’ve been watching Non-League football on a regular basis since I was 10 years old. What I like most is that the players, club officials and supporters are there for the love of the game. The true spirit of football exists at Non-League level.

I grew up in North-West London and I was taken by my family to see my local club QPR as a child in the 1970’s.

I’ve always supported the R’s, but when they were playing away from home I started going to see my local Non-League clubs – Hendon primarily, but also Finchley, Barnet and Edgware Town.

From there, I decided to visit every Non-League club in London as my groundhopping bug began. By the time I was 17, I had visited all 92 Football League grounds and I visited all the Scottish League grounds whilst still a teenager.

Since then, I’ve continued travelling all around the country to visit Non-League clubs. Earlier this season, I chalked up my 2,000th ground at FC United of Manchester.

One of the best groundhops was being part of a world record in March 2004. I joined 250 other groundhoppers to watch five matches at five different football grounds in one day in the Central Midlands League.

This is listed in the Guinness Book of Records and we received certificates confirming the world record at the end of the fifth game.

In December 2011, I set about watching a match inside Feltham Prison in Middlesex.

This featured a team called Phoenix FC, who had to play all their fixtures at home (for obvious reasons!) as inmates of the Young Offender Institution at Feltham.

I received special permission by email to attend a fixture, but I was told not to bring a phone or a camera with me. I was instructed to arrive in the main car park along with the match referee and the visiting players from Hanworth Villa Vets.

We were met by members of the prison staff who escorted us all in together…via an airport-style metal detector, a body search, numerous locked gates and along a path to the changing rooms.

This process took 45 minutes. After the players and ref got changed, we were then accompanied through more locked gates out to the playing area.

A high mesh fence with barbed wire on top surrounded the football pitch. There were dug-outs along one touchline and I watched the match from there as the only spectator.

By going to FC United, I re-completed visits to the top 16 divisions of English football down to Non-League step 4. Then at step 5 I need 27 grounds and another 78 at step 6.

There are endless possibilities at step 7 and below. Also, I’ve been to 35 European countries plus the USA for football – so it would be nice to visit more countries.

Derby Day!

  Monday 14th December 2015

This coming Saturday sees the first derby match of the 2015/16 season for us as we welcome our cross-town neighbours Skegness Town to Wainfleet Rd.  Over the past few years there have been some excellent matches between the two with both sides at various times emerging as victors. No doubt this week will prove to be just as exciting a game as in previous encounters

Saturday 5th September

  Sunday 30th August 2015

Saturday 5th marks the opening fixture for our new Development Squad. Our first league fixture will be played away to North Thoresby and promises to be a tough but interesting match for our young side. Today will be a test for them as they have been steadily building on the work put in by both Scott and Martin. They are a young squad are already showing great potential with some impressive results so far.

Our first team make the return journey to this league favourites - Hykeham. You will remember we played them a couple of weeks previously and were on the end of a 5-1 defeat. The scoreline was a little harsh on us as a team but that is to take nothing at all away from Hykeham who were, as always clinical and precise. There is no doubt this fixture will be a tough one for us but that is something we can say for every team who will face Hykeham this season. The league looks like being a tough one this year and is shaping up to have some early strong sides.

Spilsby Town vs Development Squad

Spilsby Town vs Development Squad

Saturday saw our young development squad play their 1st match against Spilsby Town Res. In what proved to be a tough encounter, Spilsby took the win thanks to a single goal but our young lads more than proved themselves capable with some excellent performances

  Monday 20th July 2015

Boston Town vs 1st Team

Thursday saw our 1st team travel to Boston Town for what has become an annual fixture for us.  The game was expected t be a tough match due to the quality of the opposition and this certainly proved to be the case with Boston fielding a full-strength UCL side. With goals from Luke Rayner-Mistry and Kurt Crossley, United left with the spoils in a 2-1 victory with solid performances from everyone.  Man of the Match was Corey Cunliffe.

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!

What proved to be a thoroughly entertaining morning saw both teams pitted against each other in a friendly battle.

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

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.
