The Poachers will hit the Wembley trail this weekend.

Boston Town host Eastern Counties Division One side Great Yarmouth Town at Tattershall Road in the FA Cup extra-preliminary round on Saturday (KO 3pm).

And as the Poachers prepare to face the Bloaters, manager Ian Dunn knows his team are in for a battle.

“They’ll work hard,” said Dunn, who watched Yarmouth lose 1-0 to Kirkley and Pakefield in pre-season.

“They’re a level below, so their quality isn’t quite the same as ours.

“But I know they’ll come and have a go.

“They’ve got a long way to travel, so they won’t come here to do anything but give us a game.”

As well as the kudos that comes with a good FA Cup run, the £1,500 prize money up for grabs on Saturday could be important to both clubs.

Dunn added: “It’s a lot of money for both clubs. It’s an extra insentive.”

Town have also bolstered their squad by re-signing midfielder Alec Robinson.

He has rejoined the Poachers after returning from the USA.
