Nathan Collins has described Boston Town’s possession tactics as a ‘joy to watch’.

The Poachers left Welingborough with three points following a 2-0 UCL Premier victory on Saturday.

Jordan Nuttell handed Town a 17th-minute lead before Tim Lowe put the contest beyond doubt on the half-hour mark.

But it was the way in which the Poachers frustrated the Doughboys after gaining their early advantage which impressed the manager most.

“It was my kind of game - go there, play good football, take the lead, shut up shop and go home,” Collins said.

“When we went in front we kept the ball well and they couldn’t get it off us, it was a joy to watch.

“We kept the ball for long periods and that deflated them.

“They wanted to come back at us but we didn’t give them to chance to.”

In a good week for the Poachers they also progressed in the FA Cup, winning their extra-preliminary round replay at Walsham Le Willows.

Matt Kennedy netted twice and Nuttell found the target as Boston left their Eastern Counties League Premier Division opponents with a 3-1 victory.

“It was a long trek in midweek, but we scored two really good goals and we did the important thing, meaning we left there with the win.

“They’re a big side and it’s not an easy place to go, to play on their slope.

“But I think we did well.”
