PLAYER-manager Ian Dunn scored twice at the Dog and Duck to help Boston Town earn a convincing victory over struggling Wellingborough on Saturday.

Fellow forward Simon Mowbray grabbed his second goal since moving to Town.

“The early part of the season was always going to be about us finding our feet,” said fellow boss Matt Hocking.

“It’s our first season managing at this club and we’ve got a young squad we’re gelling.

“But it feels like things are starting to click into place.

“It was great to get a win and also important we kept a clean sheet.”

Dunn opened the scoring on 15 minutes and the Poachers held the lead until the interval.

Wellingborough currently sit bottom of the United Countiers League Premier Division, having lost all four of their opening matches.

But Boston proved ruthless, finishing their opponents off with two goals in five second-half minutes.

Mowbray came off the bench to score in the 73rd minute.

And this was swiftly followed by Dunn’s second of the game.

“Mobes is a great player and we felt he just needed a goal,” said Hocking of the player who also netted for Town against Cogenhoe.

“We could tell he was getting frustrated.

“But we told him his chance would come and it did.

“Now we think he can go on and get a lot more.”

TOWN: Lindberg, Wilson, Kirton, Maltby, Wood, Pinner, Stocks (Clancy), Borbely, Dunn, Ford (Mowbray), Barber (Tom Ruck).
