Boston United re-lived video nasty

Ben Fairclough couldn't watch as Boston United conceded number six... but he had to go through it again last night.

BOSTON United’s squad were forced to re-live their Altrincham horror show last night.

Managers Jason Lee and Lee Canoville decided to swap training for the TV and make the red-faced Pilgrims watch exactly what went wrong as they were thrashed 6-1 at Moss Lane.

It would certainly be a video nasty for the Boston team, but something the bosses believe can inspire the squad to cut out the errors ahead of Saturday’s clash at Histon (KO 3pm).

“We’re going to watch the video on Tuesday (last night),” said Canoville who, along with the 70-plus travelling fans, was a frustrated observer on the sidelines.

“They’ll have to sit through what we had to sit through.

“Maybe then they can see for themselves some of the things which just aren’t good enough.”

The 6-1 drubbing by the Robins compounded a shocking week for United, who were dumped out of the FA Cup in a midweek replay at lowly Kidsgrove Athletic.

It was too much to watch for Ben Fairclough on Saturday as he covered his face with his shirt as goal number six went in.

But he was among the squad forced to watch again last night.
