Former Premier League striker Julian Joachim was on target for Freiston Reserves in the Boston Saturday Football League this weekend.

The ex-Aston Villa, Coventry City, Leeds United and Boston United forward - who was raised in the town - played his part as his side beat Mareham United in the Taylors Peugeot Division One.

Dane Harper and Perrie Dale also found the net.

Joachim isn’t the first famous name to turn out in the Boston league.

Snooker champ Ronnie O’Sullivan once got a game for Old Leake when he was staying in the town.

However, without the former Leicester City man in their side, league leaders Freiston lifted their first piece of silverware this season on Thursday.

They gained revenge on Wyberton Reserves to lift the Main Ridge Take Away Cup at Boston Town’s Tattershall Road ground.

They made amends for last season’s final defeat to Wyberton’s second side with a 2-0 victory.

Jamie Elston opened the scoring with a powerful strike from the edge of the box, before man-of-the-match Frazer Bayliss curled home the second.

In the Taylors Garages Premier Division on Saturday, Old Leake had a comfortable 4-0 away win at Freiston thanks to goals from Adam Wright, Chris Massingham, Bert Snaith and Kieran Stocks.

Pointon and Old Doningtonians shared the points following a 2-2 draw.

Fishtoft claimed the points at Skegness Town Reserves with a 4-2 success.

Tony Edwards, Scott Morley (two) and Adam Vinters hit the winning goals while ref Paul Revell had a faultless game.

Also in the Taylors Peugeot Division One, Coningsby earned a 3-2 home win against Spalding Harriers, Danny Prue (two) and Sam Brader winning it.

Sam Wright and Scott Mackay grabbed Wrangle United a 2-1 home win against Spalding Town.

Mark Lovelace hit a hat-trick as Wyberton Reserves beat Wainfleet 4-1.

Ruskington Rovers clinched the Taylors Ford Division Two title after beating Fishtoft Reserves 3-0.

Park United moved above Fishtoft Reserves at the foot of the table following a 3-1 home win against Mareham Reserves, Chris Wright, Alex Limb and Stefan Furnell hitting the decisive goals.

Sutterton and Nelson shared the points following their 2-2 draw. Tony Pascu and Danny Woods hit the Sutterton goals while Liam Shinn and Stuart Beeson replied for Nelson.

Swineshead have, at least, deprived Wyberton of one piece of silverware this season when the two leading Premier sides clashed in the Barclays Brokers Willoughby Cup semis at the Causeway.

Goals from Mark Sharman and Paul Clarke gave Swineshead a 2-0 victory and they now meet Billinghay in the final.

In the Taylors Vauxhall Division Three, Ali Hutton scored a hat-trick for Benington as they beat leaders Swineshead Reserves 3-2.

The SHS Allium Fishtoft Cup final, between Wyberton and Woodhall Spa United, will be held at Boston Town’s Tattershall Road ground tomorrow (Thursday) .

Kick off is 7pm. Entry is £1 with concessions available.
