Alford 2nds

Boston 2nds

THE Seconds moved up to third in the league table after a resounding 3-0 victory over Alford.

Historically, contests between these two opponents have been tight affairs. But on Saturday, Boston stormed into a 3-0 half-time lead.

Goalkeeper Shane Railton made a welcome return to the side while Eddie Jacobs also replied.

From the start, Boston took the game to Alford and were duly rewarded. Boston took the lead and they did so with a fine strike at the top of the D from Bradley Briggs.

From that moment on, Boston had the lion’s share of the play.

Andy Stone and Jamie Birks had efforts well saved, but it was the former’s persistence that saw Boston double their lead as he pounced on a half-chance to finish from virtually on the line.

It was after some more decent possession and passing on the right flank from Callum Sims and Eddie Jacobs that provided Stone with his chance.

Boston went three up, following some superb work on the left flank from Charlie Davy, whose perfect flicked pass allowed Birks to fire home.

After the break the contest became more even, with no further score.

The Seconds host Leadenham Firsts on Saturday.
