BOSTON United have been handed a tricky opening fixture for the 2012-13 Blue Square Bet North season.

The Pilgrims will make the trip to Manchester to face Droylsden on August 18 for the curtain opener.

But since their return to the BSBN, United have failed to win at the Butchers Arms Ground.

Last season Ian Ross scored a supers curling 20-yard strike, but it wasn’t enough as Boston lost 2-1.

The previous season, United went down 4-0 against the Bloods, ending their run of 10 league games without conceding.
