LORI Borbely began his managerial career by guiding Boston Town to a 3-2 win at Thrapston.
The midfielder - with teammate Shane Clancy acting as his assistant on the bench - took the helm after boss Martyn Lakin resigned his position last week.
Borbely, who is also a club director, was on target to grant the Poachers the lead after 25 minutes.
The hosts equalised before the break through Korey Morgan.
Mark Lovelace netted on his return to Town, handing his side a 55th-minute lead.
Lovelace - who has been with Pinchbeck United and Moulton Harrox this term - picked up where he left off, after netting 11 goals in the 2002-03 season for Boston.
Victory was ensured in the 60th minute as defender Jack Smith added the third.
Chris Jones earned a consolation goal for the hosts with two minutes remaining.
The three points sees the Poachers edge further away from the United Counties League Premier Division’s drop zone.
Town have now lost just once in eight league contests.
TOWN Reserves earned a 6-2 win over Eynesbury, making it four wins from five since manager Phil Jones took over.
