Jason Alexander admitted that last night’s man-of-the-match champagne was ‘no consolation’ following Boston United’s 4-1 home defeat to Solihull Moors.

The giant 6ft 7ins keeper pulled off a string of impressive saves during his debut and was applauded off the pitch by the home support.

But clutching his man of the match bubbly, the 18-year-old admitted he’d much rather have three points in the bag.

“I’m just gutted,” he said.

“It’s no consolation whatsoever. I’d rather have the points to be honest.

“I’d be standing here delighted if we’d got three points, or even one point, and I’d played well.

“But I’m disappointed.”

Alexander - who has spent the past two seasons studying at the Synergy Sports Academy after leaving Chesterfield’s youth academy - admitted to nerves when he was told he would be starting in place of Henrich Ravas, who was on duty with the Slovakian under 19s.

“I was nervous,” he added.

“The gaffer told me I was starting and my first few kicks weren’t the best.

“But I made a save and it settled me down a bit.”
