Boston Town boss Ian Dunn believes that Saturday’s fantastic FA Vase victory at Bridgnorth can kickstart his side’s season.

Josh Ford scored two penalties and Ollie Maltby grabbed an 85th-minute winner as the Poachers booked their place in the final 64 of the national competition, after trailing 1-0 at half time.

“The feeling in the camp was fantastic. The way the lads reacted after they won? There’s nothing like it,” said Dunn.

“The club hasn’t had a cup run in a competition like this for a long time, and hopefully our cup form can now be moved into the league.”

Town have been drawn away at West Midlands-based Gornal Athletic on December 8.

But after defeating fellow Midland Alliance side Bridgnorth, the Poachers will travel full of belief.

But before that, they head off to face Desborough in the United Counties League Premier Division on Saturday (KO 3pm).

And Dunn, joint-boss alongside Matt Hocking, has warned his players they cannot take anything for granted, stating they are all playing for a place in the team which will travel to Gornal.

He added: “A team who does this well in the FA Vase should be finishing higher up in the league.

“We have to be more consistent every week.”

Last night Town travelled to face Deeping Rangers in league action. For a report, log on to
