Goal machine Cameron Salisbury needed just 16 seconds to fire Boston Hockey Club men ahead as they beat Bourne Deeping Thirds 4-1.

The speed in which he struck was a record for the Sportsman side.

The striker took the start himself, played the ball back to Connor Gilbert (pictured) before picking up the return pass.

At the 25-yard line he beat three defenders before tucking home at the second attempt after seeing his first effort parried.

Salisbury added his second of the match from a penalty corner, the ball going in via a strong back-post deflection.

Bourne Deeping - who had beaten Boston at the start of the season - didn’t let off the pressure all game, making keeper Jack Ashton work hard from start to finish.

But it took another defelction for the hosts to get their only goal of the game, via the stick of Tim Carr.

In the second half Gilbert took up the goalscoring mantle with two very well-earned strikes.

The first was a big reverse strike from the top of the D, after he had beaten two defenders, his second was from yet another deflection at the back post.

BOSTON: Ashton, B. Carr, Davey, Humphreys, T. Carr, Sanderson, Gilbert, Haynes, Simms, Wightman, Salisbury, Stone.

There is all to play for next week when Boston gets their first chance to go top of the table.

They travel to Play Bourne Deeping Fourths in a match which was postponed earlier this campaign.
