Skegness Town (A) preview

By Martin Eastwood

Day trip to Skeggy for the Pewits

AFC Emley head back to Lincolnshire for the second successive Saturday, following on from last weeks goalless draw at Grimsby Borough, when they travel to the coast to face NCEL newcomers Skegness Town 3pm.
The Lilywhites, were promoted from the Lincolnshire league, after a 36 year absence from level 10, after winning that league 4 times in the last 6 seasons, and currently sit 17th in Division 1 after 5 wins from their 18 games so far.
Emley, meanwhile sit 10th, after last week's decent draw at 2nd place Grimsby Borough, Emley have drawn both league games against Grimsby this season and will be hoping to maintain their decent run of form, Joe Howson's men have only lost once in their last 6 games, that being a 1-0 defeat to Dronfield a couple of weeks ago.
Skegness' form is somewhat erratic, although a recent home and away league double over fellow newcomers Harworth will have boosted their confidence somewhat.
Emley, will be seeking a first league win away from the Fantastic Media Welfare Ground, since a 6-0 trouncing of Bolsover in October.
For any fans not going on the coach and fancies a day out at the seaside following the Pewits, the address is
Vertigo Stadium
Wainfleet Road, Skegness, PE25 2EL
