Poachers hit self destruct... twice

Nathan Collins has accused his Boston Town side of hitting the ‘self destruct button’ twice in the space of a week.

On Saturday the Poachers dominated their FA Cup extra-preliminary round contest at home to Walsham Le Willows.

But after Matt Kennedy failed to convert from the penalty spot, Town only had Lori Borbely’s finish to show for their work.

And when Luke Austin levelled for the Willows the two opponents had to settle for a replay.

“I’m angry about it,” Collins said.

“That’s the second time that we opened a team up for 45 minutes and ended up not winning.

“We’ve pressed the self-destruct button.

“I’ve played in matches where a team has dominated you but they keep missing their chances - it makes you start to think ‘this is our day’.”

Collins was also left frustrated last Tuesday when the Poachers saw a 3-2 lead slip at Peterborough Northern Star in UCL Premier action.

Alex Beck, Jordan Nuttell and Callum Walker put the away side in pole position, only for the hosts to net three times in four minutes and run out 5-3 winners.

Boston Town will unveil a Hall of Fame of their greatest players to mark the club’s 50th anniversary.

The first member of the Hall of Fame will be revealed on Friday (August 22) - exactly half a century after Boston FC played their first competitive fixture.

In all, total of 50 legendary players will be honoured throughout the season on the club’s website - www.bostontownfc.co.uk
