Boston United sign off season with a hat-trick

BOSTON United finished the season with a hat-trick of awards.

The Pilgrims may have finished 11th in the Blue Square Bet North, but the club finished on top off the pitch.

Attending the Football Conference Congress over the weekend, club officials claimed three top gongs.

United were named as Blue Square Bet North Community Club of the Year for 2011-2012 — and collected a £10,000 chequet.

Pilgrims chairman David Newton and vice-chairman Neil Kempster accepted the cheque from Lord Falconer of Worcester and Susan O’Brien of the Football Conference Trust.

The club’s official matchday programme The Pilgrim scooped the Blue Square Bet North Programme of the Year title.

The publication has now won the main divisional award in two of the last three seasons that United have played Conference football.

And to cap things off, United’s Craig Singleton was also named as Blue Square Bet North Press Officer of the Year for 2011-2012, making it three awards.
