Boston Town’s hopes of reaching the Lincs Senior Trophy final were dashed at Blackstones last night.

The Stamford-based club, who play in the UCL Division One, came from behind to claim a 2-1 victory.

Ryan Parnell had put the Poachers into a first-half lead with a 35th-minute goal.

However, Blackstones fought back in the final quarter-of-an-hour.

Sam Strange pulled things level before Town’s hopes disappeared in the 87th minute.

Michael Wood saw red for a last-man challenge and - from the resultant penalty - Dan Evans slotted home.

Poachers assistant manager Jason Callaby was forced to turn back the clock and play in central midfield as Boston had Alessandro Zarrelli stuck in a traffic jam on the A1.

TOWN: Doughty, Lambley, Parker, Fleming, Wood, Ford, Parnell, Jencsi, Beck, Borbely, Callaby (Zarrelli).
