Boston Town kicked off their UCL Premier season with a home defeat to Cogenhoe United.
Josh Ford netted for the Poachers from the penalty spot.
However, his goal was nothing more than a consolation.
By the time last season’s leading scorer opened his account, Town were already trailing 3-0 to the Cooks.
Boston will host promotion favourites Spalding United at Tattershall Road on Tuesday (KO 3pm).
