CLEETHORPES Town’s Development Squad climbed into second place in the Balcan Lighting Supplies Lincolnshire League after they defeated Horncastle Town.

The seasiders bagged three points with a 3-1 win over Horncastle, reducing unbeaten Sleaford Town Reserves’ lead at the top of the table to seven points.

In the Supplementary Cup, Wyberton became the latest club to secure their place in the quarter-finals with a tidy win over Skegness United, while Skegness Town made it four wins out of four in Group B of the same competition.

Brigg Town Reserves picked up their first Group C points with a win at Market Rasen Town, while the Group D tie between Lincoln Railway AFC and Hykeham Town was postponed when the railmen failed to raise a team.

The home side ran out winners with goals from Richard Peck, Luke Beecham and George Haines.

The three points lifted the seasiders to second in the table behind Sleaford Town’s second string.

Group B

Skegness Town 4

Ruston Sports 0

All Josh Bartlett’s four goals have been scored in cup competitions this season.

The latest was a brace of goals against Ruston Sports to help the Lilywhites complete a Supplementary Cup double over the Lincoln side.

The seasiders’ Courtney Warren opened his account for the season and Liam Parker notched his third as the home side made it four wins out of four in the group stages.

Group C

Market Rasen Town 1

Brigg Town Reserves 3

A win for Market Rasen would have seen them through to the quarter-finals with Horncastle from Group C.

Instead they have a showdown at Brigg for that last eight spot after they were turned over by the North Lincolnshire outfit.

David Deane, Scott Neary and an own goal did the damage for the visitors.

Kyle Paul grabbed the Rasen goal.
