Davidson double earns Boston United opening day win

Monday, 8am - DANNY Davidson admittted he made a 'dream start' to his Pilgrims career after netting a double at FC United of Manchester.

He struck in each half to grant Boston United a curtain-raising victory at Gigg Lane.

His first was a 34th-minute overhead kick.

On the hour he finished off a fine move involving James Cullingworth and Marc Newsham, firing into an open goal.

"It was a dream start for me and for the team," Davidson said.

But the hosts bombarded the Boston goal for the final half hour and were rewarded with Adam Tong's goal with 10 minutes remaining.

However, United held on - thanks to some heroics from keeper Tom Evans - for the memorable win, dampened by Matt Austin being stretchered off following a late challenge by Simon Carden.
