Liam Adams netted a second-half equaliser as Boston United drew 1-1 at Stamford last night.

The teenage winger converted James Clifton’s cross-shot two minutes into the second half to cancel out Jake Duffy’s deflected 20th-minute free kick.

Adam Murray had made a number of changes to the nucleus of the side which began his three opening pre-season friendlies.

But Adams’ finish ensured that Boston remain undefeated in their warm-up contests.

Former Daniel Tom Batchelor also went close for Boston, rattling the Stamford crossbar.

Boston’s squad also included former Mansfield Town and Nottingham Forest winger Haydn Havard.
