Lancaster City travel to Marske United following midweek win

Lancaster City visit Marske United looking to maintain their top half position.

The Dolly Blues climbed to 11th in the NPL Premier Division on Tuesday with a 2-1 home win over Ashton United, which was just their second win in 11 games.

City announced a new signing on Thursday evening who could feature on Saturday afternoon.

Striker Tom Kilifin has returned to the club following his departure from North West Counties League side Bury.

The forward has previously made 250 appearances across two spells at The Giant Axe, scoring 75 goals.

He played for another North West Counties League side in Kendal Town last season, netting 33 times in 44 games.

Meanwhile, Marske United are in 20th position in the league table, occupying a relegation spot. 

They are the team who have conceded the most goals this season: 44 goals in 17 games. 

Marske have lost their last three games and have failed to score in all of them, but did win the three games before then against Basford United, Atherton Collieries and Workington. 

City have already beaten Marske United once this season.

They were 4-1 victors over The Seasiders in the Second Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup in September. 

On Thursday, Lancaster City announced the departure of first team coach Rob Henry, who has left to join Neil Reynolds’ coaching staff at FC United of Manchester.

Before being a first team coach at the club, he made 290 appearances as a player for the Dolly Blues. 

"Rob feels that it’s time for a new challenge," said Mark Fell, City manager,

“He’s been an amazing servant to Lancaster, both as a player and coach and will be missed by us all, but that’s football, people move on and that creates and opportunity for someone else.”

Marske United v Lancaster City kicks off at 3pm on Saturday (November 18) at Mount Pleasant.
