Cup Winners!!

Saturday saw us play our final game of the season on a warm Spring day at Louth Town's ground in Saltfleetby.  For the 7th time this season we faced Sutton Rovers - a team we've had some fantastic contests with over the course of the season.

The game could not have had much more in the way of drama - phantom goals, shuddering tackles, injuries last-gasp penalties and finally penalties to decide. The game hinged on three events more than anything - a 'goal' United thought we'd scored late in the game which was ruled to be a free kick.  This was after both teams had lined up to take the kick-off both assuming the goal had stood.  With a few minutes of extra time remaining, Jack Minor in the United goal saved a penalty from Sutton to send the game to penalties.  After both teams scoring their first 6, United scored their 7th which put the weight of the game on Sutton.  Yet again, Jack Minor saved a penalty to send the United contingent wild and secure our second trophy of the season!

It's Cup Final Day!

League Champions 2016/17

Today saw us win 2-0 away against a strong Chapel side who were looking to continue their undefeated run to 7 games. Our win, with goals from Zak Bray and John Courtney, along with a defeat for Sutton Rovers sees us crowned League Champions.

We'd like to congratulate Michael and all players involved for this fantastic achievement.

Advanced in the Cup

  Wednesday 08th February 2017

Saturday saw us face Sutton Rovers away in what we knew would be a tough fixture. In our previous encounter, Sutton emerged as 2-0 winners on a day when we just didn't perform well - this game was about making amends.  With 7 regulars missing this was going to be an even more difficult task.

With a goal coming from Zak Bray, we claimed a place in the semi-final and an encouraging, dogged performance too.  This weekend sees us face Chapel Swifts.  We have three remaining league games and are closing in on the title, it's all about focus now!

Another Three Points

  Monday 30th January 2017

Saturday saw us face a tough, resilient Alford Town side in the league.  A win was required at all costs in our push for the title. The game saw both sides test each other, both goalkeepers pulling off some great stops to deny their opposition. The deadlock was finally broken in the closing stages of the first half when a corner driven was headed home by Keaton Grainger. The second half saw more of the same, with both sides pushing hard, but as the game wore on, it was United looking more likely to score. The pressure paid off when the score was doubled by Keaton Grainger grabbing his second of the game.

The final stages of the game were played out fairly evenly but the result was right. Another three points for United who are now 6 points clear with a game in hand. With only three league games remaining for us, it's all about focus. The end is in sight, we just need to stay on our game, but we face a tough test when we play Sutton Rovers in our league fixture. They are the only team with any real hope of catching us and three points against them would pretty much decide things. Both sides will be looking for a win.
