Striker Ben Good notched his first Boston Town goal - as the Poachers got back to winning ways.

Town won 3-0 at AFC Kempston Rovers on Saturday, completing a United Counties League Premier Division double over their opponents.

“It’s always important for a striker to get their first goal for a club,” said boss Ian Dunn.

“It takes the pressure off.

“Ben deserved it. He does a lot of the work that strikers do and don’t get credit for.

“I’m pleased for him.”

Good compounded Kempston’s misery with a close-range finish late on, his first goal since his move to Tattershall Road little more than a week ago.

Jason Field put the Poachers ahead with a volley and Shane Clancy doubled the advantage from the penalty spot.

But more importantly for Town, it was their first league win in eight attempts.

There have been draws and cup wins since that last league win - against Kempston on September 22 - but manager Ian Dunn was full of praise for his side.

He added: “It was good to get the win, a nice feeling.

“But what really pleased me was the defence.

“They battled hard and did everything right.

“Things haven’t really gone for them in the last five or six games.”
