A blast from the past greeted Boston United president John Blackwell on Saturday when former Pilgrim David Norris bumped into him in the car park.

Norris returned with the Salford City squad 17 years after being sold by the club to Bolton Wanderers.

‘Nosher’ went on to also feature for the likes of Plymouth Argyle, Leeds United and Ipswich Town.
