Poacher bosses want to finish the season on a high following Saturdays match against Peterborough Northern Star.

Despite drawing 3-3 and ending their winning streak, joint manager Matt Hocking is taking a glass half full approach and looking at the fact the team are still unbeaten for six games.

He said: “It’s a bit disappointing but we came in from the first half laughing and joking but we said it was a bit of a false scoreline.

“We knew they had a bit to offer us, and in the second half they came out guns blazing and scored three goals in quick succession.”

In the match on Saturday, Boston took the lead with two goals by Ollie Pinner, however Star came back after the half time break with three goals in ten minutes.

The game ended in a draw, however, when Jason Field equalised.

Matt isn’t letting the result get to him though.

“We’ve had a really positive run of results lately and have won on five out of six games. We’re looking to keep that going.”

To that end the team have also taken neighbours Boston United’s 18-year-old midfielder James Reed off their hands for a month.

The temporary move to Tattershall Road will allow the BUFC player to get games in while unable to play in the team’s reserves.

Hocking believes the addition will add extra ‘quality and strength’ to the team.

“We’re delighted to get him,” he said.
