With £1,500 at stake, Boston Town will be desperate to record their first victory of the season when they host Great Yarmouth Town in the FA Cup today.

Following home defeats to Cogenhoe United (3-1) and Spalding United (3-0) in the UCL Premier, bosses Ian Dunn and Matt Hocking are hoping for a reverse this afternoon.

The duo kicked off their reign as Poachers bosses with a home FA Cup defeat to Quorn last season.

So now they are eager to make amends.

“We have to win, no question about it,” Dunn told The Standard.

“We have to get the victory, it’s important for the club to get our first win.

“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves, we need to be confident.”

But while Boston are looking for their first victory, Yarmouth are undefeated at this early stage of the season.

The Bloaters began their Eastern Counties Division One season with a 2-2 draw at Saffron Walden Town last Saturday and won 1-0 at Stowmarket Town on Tuesday.

Prize money for today’s extra-preliminary round will be £1,500.

Kick off at Tattershall Road is 3pm.
