A last-gasp goal from Pilgrims old boy Phil Watt saw Grantham Town snatch a draw against Boston United last night.

On an evening where most amber and black fans found themselves concentrating on The Quadrant planning issues, there was also a warm-up contest taking place.

Dennis Greene’s side looked comfortable at the interval after goals from Jamie McGhee - who joined United from the Gingerbreads last season - and Michael Hollingsworth gave them a 2-0 lead.

However, Greg Smith reduced the arrears late on.

And with the last kick of the game, Watt swiped home a loose ball in the penalty area to level things up.

Boston now look forward to Saturday’s Vanarama North curtain-raiser, and the arrival of Barrow.
