General Discussion / Re: Spennymoor at home
« on: January 04, 2020, 07:33:49 PM »
3 - 0 with Adam Marriott scoring 2 and Ross Barrows getting the 1st.

Spennymoor look quite ordinary  in the 1st half and lost their most influential player No3 to a  :red card: for a "last man foul" on Hendo on the edge of the box after 15mins. They changed shape to 4-4-1 and tried to strike on the break with little threat.

Ross Barrows was immense in defence again alongside Tom Ward who replaced Rory McAuley before the start as he picked up an injury during warm-up. Alfie Payne started alongside the two Centre Backs with Aaron Jones and Nathan Fox in their usual role of Wing Backs. Jordan Richards in midfield broke up potential attacks and started counters alongside Chris Henderson who again made himself familiar with every blade of grass in midfield, wings and penalty area. Spenney tried to contain Michael Gash and he was not as mobile as usual but Adam Marriott made a nuisance of himself all afternoon and ended with two fine goals in the 2nd half. All 3 Subs were used and brought fresh legs and different attacking options, especially Ryan Hawkins as the Right Wing/Wing Back. It was nice to see Harry Limb get some time on the pitch and he had a few pops at goal.

Spennymoor started the 2nd half a little brighter than the 1st but it petered out after our 2nd goal, although they still played on trying to salvage something but got nowhere near the goal to threaten Pedro who made some easy saves from soft and long shots.

My MOM was again between Richards and Barrows, albeit Adam Marriott increased his tally by two.

General Discussion / Boston Manager's Interview

Boston United Post Match report:


Boston United opened 2020 with a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of National League North leaders King's Lynn Town.
The Pilgrims endured a resounding reversal against the table-topping Linnets to suffer their first home league defeat of the season.

Goals from ex-Pilgrims Adam Marriott and Jordan Richards put Lynn in control at half-time and Michael Gash completed the scoring 10 minutes from time.

Jake Wright, Dominic Knowles and Dayle Southwell were unleashed in a three-pronged United attack and Wright was hacked down early on by Ross Barrows, which earned the Lynn defender a fourth minute yellow card.

Brad Abbott sailed the resulting 25-yard free-kick narrowly wide.

The visitors took a 28th minute lead when MARRIOTT was adjudged to be onside when racing through and held off Ben Middleton to beat Peter Crook from 18 yards.

Crook soon stuck out his chest to beat away Chris Hendersonís firm drive following an assist from Marriott.

Barrows almost sliced a Martyn Woolford cross into his own net towards the end of the first half but Lynn were soon two goals to the good when Gash and Marriott teed up RICHARDS to fire home low to Crookís right from 20 yards.

United attempted to up the ante after the break and visiting keeper Alex Street did well to thwart a marauding Wright.

Knowles then teed up substitute Jay Rollins, who netted with aplomb, but was promptly flagged offside.

Unitedís best chance went begging when substitute Jordan Thewlis crashed an effort high over the bar from 12 yards with the goal at his mercy.

Crook denied GASH at his near post but was powerless to stop the same player sealing Lynnís victory with a simple close-range finish after Marriott had intercepted the United keeperís poor goal-kick.

Boston (4-3-3): Peter Crook; Ben Middleton, Luke Shiels, Simon Ainge, Alex Whittle; Brad Abbott, Tom Platt, Martyn Woolford (Jordan Thewlis 67); Jake Wright, Dominic Knowles, Dayle Southwell (Jay Rollins 60). Subs (not used): Ashley Jackson, Jonathan Wafula, George Willis (gk).

Kingís Lynn (4-1-2-1-2): Alex Street; Aaron Jones, Ross Barrows, Rory McAuley, Nathan Fox; Ryan Jarvis; Jordan Richards, Sam Kelly (Sonny Carey 19); Chris Henderson; Michael Gash, Adam Marriott. Subs (not used): Harry Limb, Tom Ward, Ryan Hawkins, Alfie Payne.

Referee: Scott Simpson.

Attendance: 2,360 (458 visitors).

Yes - great result.  Good result at Brackley as well, from our point of view.  Our home crowd really ought to start to snowball from now.......Potentially a very exciting last third of the season...  Anyone know why Kelly off so early ?  No mention on the commentary that I could see ( an otherwise good coverage).

Calf according to Cully.
Wow York Street was rocking today with Linnets. That was a real warning shot to the league to have beaten their unbeaten home record and made them look ordinary, who'd have thought we would take 6 points off them. Everyone had a good game. Barrows and Jords go from strength to strength. Hendo superb, Gash and Marriot the best double act in Non League. They all need a mention :) Best away day for years.
About time Radio Norwich did a linnet line when no Norwich game even if only for 15 mins.

To be fair Boston had a lot of the ball as they were again quicker to get to the loose ball and were fairly skilful with it. Their play was at times hoof-ball but our defence was immense, especially Ross Barrows. Pedro was alert and catching or punching anything coming high into his area.

Ref made some strange opposite decisions where it looked like Lynn player was fouled but they got the free kick. Barrow got an early yellow but then Boston strong-arm tactics got ignored apart from a finger wag at No9 for a over-zealous challenge on Pedro. Obvious handball halfway up arm was waved away as "shoulder" - no way!

We played a more compact back four with less wingback play from Fox and Jones - Boston proved they needed defending against. Adam Marriott's goal was a break-away and taken coolly against the advancing keeper. Jordan Richards shot from outside the box and bounced in off the keeper's right-hand post and into the net.

Second Half saw Lynn much more in control as Boston had to chase the 2goal lead. Boston players were falling and staying down - looked like efforts to get bookings. A very poor goal kick went straight to Marriott and he tore at the defence down the right and into the box. Looked as if he would shoot but he saw Gash to his left and slipped it across the goalie into Michael's path and - BOOM 3 - 0.

My MoM goes to Ross Barrows, beating narrowly Jordan Richards and Chris Henderson.
Home fans started to leave and chants of "Where are you going" etc. and silence from the other end.

Some information courtesy of Paul Jesus Flanagan from Facebook:

Linnets supporters attending the game at Boston United on Wednesday will be housed in the York Street stand and will enter the stadium via turnstiles 3, 3A and 4.
The Benton Brothers York Street Stand is situated to the east of the pitch. The right-hand side of this stand is reserved for away supporters, who are accommodated by flat terracing as well as the benches above. Entry for this section is through turnstiles 3, 3A and 4. Home supporters access the stand through turnstiles 5 and 6. It is an unusual stand with both terracing near the pitch and seating above and behind. Its capacity is 1,435 with 503 seated.

The ground's car park is for permit holders only. Public parking is on the surrounding roads or at an NCP car park off John Adams Way. (Another Post says this NCP Car Park has now been built on so is no longer there???)

Boston is the nearest railway station to the ground; it is less than 1 mile (1.6 km) away and sign posted throughout the town.
Road travel to the ground from outside the area is by the A1 and the A17 (and A16) Sleaford to Boston road. From the town access to York Street is along John Adams Way and Main Ridge.

From the off Boston were out of the gates and attacking the Lynn half where we we hard pressed to get out of for the first 10mins or so. Boston were much quicker to the ball and their passing was slick. On a very rare counter attack Adam Marriott was through and looked odds on to beat the goalie. However, he was chased by two defenders and cynically brought down just outside the box -  :red card: and Boston had to reorganise with 10men.

They defended in depth and parked themselves in their own half, waiting for a chance to break forward if the chances arose. 0 - 0 at HT with no side having any real advantage.

Second half started with no changes on either side and withe Boston still playing the defensive and go for a snatched goal on the break. Lynn were attacking but found it hard to find a way through. Boston goalie made several excellent saves. It was looking as if it would go to a scoreless draw.  The Free Kick was wasted going well over Pedro's bar.

Ian Culverhouse made some tactical changes, bringing on Hawkins, Carey and Ward, and these injected some different approaches and Sonny Carey banged the ball into the box, goal-ward bound and Michael Gash made sure it hit the net - 1 - 0. There three or four sets of "handbags" between players but they did not result in more than the Ref calling Captains in for calming words.

Boston threw all they had to try and salvage something and one concerted attack was thwarted by Ryan Jarvis fouling and getting the 2nd  :red card: of the game.

5minutes added and it swayed to and fro but FT came with Lynn bagging all 3points and staying on top 'o table.   :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Iím a little surprised that Mr Hill has never heard a racist comment at the Walks !  I never go to a game anywhere without hearing them all the time !

Malcolm and I sit in the Stands where we are all well behaved - not like the "peasants" down below  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

We can hear the singing  :dontknow: :dontknow: from across the pitch which can be a bit coarse - calling opposition Northern b*****ds or W****rs.

I suspect that if we wandered amongst the crowds pitch-side we might hear adverse comments - If I did I would report.

General Discussion / Political and Racist Issues
« on: December 24, 2019, 06:43:54 PM »
Political and Racist Opinions should have their own Post and not tagged onto a different subject.

Quote from Stan on another Post:

"I hope Lynn win but I won't be at the match or any Lynn match in the future. During the last game, at home to Dover a comment was made to one of their substitutes from the crowd. The player looked at the crowd and someone shouted: " Hey, we've had Brexit now!" Many laughed; the player in question looked extremely uncomfortable. Needless to say, the Dover player was black. During the game another black Dover player was taunted continually throughout the game. No specific reference was made of an overtly racist nature but there was probably implicit racism in the taunts.
So, I've mulled this over for days and have decided - this is very difficult as I love supporting Lynn - not to attend any more games. I don't want to be in an environment where such attitudes are common.
So, I wish the team well and anyone who I've peed off on here, many apologies and happy Christmas!"   :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

You are quite right to object to any racist comments by fans at any football game.

Who would not be in my Team:

Jepson (can't recall anything he did well), Mettam (couldn't find the net), Hughes (not good enough asa play maker), Joachim (prima dona), Sands (yes, no, gone), Robbins (too damned volatile to fit in - another yes, no, gone), Holt (yes, yes, gone) Frew (jumped too soon for the ball and missed it) and Simon Clarke (manager  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:).

Absolutely gutted I canít make it Boxing Day, due to Christmas family commitments 🤦🏼‍♂️

With a slightly depleted squad Iím going with a 2-1 win also, but with visions of being 1,999 attendance due to 720 tickets being sold already online and Boston selling 200 also!

I shall be there and give as many Updates on the LiveFeed as I can without spoiling my enjoyment of the game.
