BOSTON United Reserves captain Mickey Stones only enhanced his reputation as he bagged four goals last night in his side’s 7-0 demolition of Skegness Town.

The burly striker missed out as the Pilgrims’ second string won the Lincs League title on Saturday.

Then he was in Telford as he travelled with the first team squad, although he was unused on the day.

But he was back in the groove at York Street last night, the outstanding performer in a side littered with first teamers.

James Cullingworth, Jason Lee, Stef Frost, Shane Clarke, Marc Newsham and Danny Davidson were among the Blue Square Bet North regulars on show.

Stones openned his account with a powerful header, following a Frost cross on 10 minutes, before doubling his tally by prodding home from close range after Davidson had seen an effort saved.

Stones completed a 25-minute hat-trick with another header.

Clarke made it 4-0 before the break as he neatly slotted past Michael Emery in the Town goal.

Stones headed home number four from a Cullingworth cross before Newsham nodded home a Frost cross to make it six.

The icing on the cake came from substitute Liam Ogden, who cheekily chipped home the seventh at the death.

United Reserves will be presented with the Lincs League trophy on Saturday at half time of Boston United’s league clash with Hyde United.
