BOSTON own suffered a 3-0 defeat at title-chasing Long Bucky - but were left rueing decisions by Saturday’s referee.

And the club’s debutants were also handed a baptism of fire away at Buckby, who moved into second spot following this victory.

With Tom Summers started at the back in place of captain Michael Wood, unavailable due to work commitments, and striker Nick Brown came in for the departed Alex Beck.

Paul Jones, meanwhile, had to wait to make his first appearance from the bench.

Boston knew it was going to be a tough day from the outset, but the Poachers often felt the officials didn’t help their cause.

Boston were under the cosh for most of the game and, in the 37th minute, Dan Quigley opened the scoring, latching on to a loose ball which Chris Wright had parried.

A minute into first-half stoppage, Summers went down with a head injury.

With the away side calling for play to be stopped, Buckby broke and earned a penalty, which Fazel Koriya dispatched.

After the interval, Boston came more into the game.

But just as they were getting on top, Kariya grabbed Town’s third, despite the Poachers calling for offside.

TOWN: Wright, Lambley, Parker, Harper (Kirton), Summers, Smith, Borbely, Clancy, Bull (Jones), Foster, Brown.
