Liam at the double for Pilgrims

Thursday, 8.55am - BOSTON United have booked themselves a place in the first round of the FA Trophy after recording a 3-1 victory against FC United of Manchester last night.

Liam Parker netted a double and Ollie Ryan was also on target at Gigg Lane.

United now host Blue Square North team AFC Telford United on December 13 at York Street.

Last night's victory was Steve Welsh's first victory since becoming caretaker boss.

He had a depleted team to pick from and Liam Parker and Steve Melton were both drafted in as Jon Rowan and Ryan Clarke were unavailable.

Papis Dieyte netted a consolation goal for FCUM.

However, United were also met with the news that Danny Matson will be out for the remainder of the season after a scan revealed ligament damage to his knee.
