Can you believe….
…it’s 10 years since we lost at home to Spennymoor United?

Boston United chairman Jon Sotnick will today lead special celebrations to mark the tenth anniversary of the 3-2 home defeat against Spennymoor United and will also launch a special commemorative program, on sale now in the club shop.

Boston slumped to a disappointing home defeat on Saturday 29 April 1995 in front of 806 fans on their way to fifth place in the Unibond Premier Division.

York Street will throw open its doors to members of the United squad that special day, including Martin Bunce, Paul Casey, Greg Fee and Martin Hardy. Hardy, speaking exclusively to impsTALK, recalled the day Boston capitulated to Tony Blair’s favourite non-league strugglers.

‘I can’t remember a thing about it,’ Hardy said. ‘Honestly. Not a thing. I played so many games. I seem to recall we went to Barrow and battered them the following weekend though.’

Goal scorer Steve Appleby was also struggling to recall the game.

‘No idea. I know we were lucky to finish fifth,’ he said.

Current chairman Jon Sotnick told impsTALK he was delighted to receive the ex-Pilgrims. ‘Today we’re celebrating the history of Boston United,’ Sotnick said, ‘and the tenth anniversary of a memorable season. Who could forget the 0-3 defeat at Heybridge Swifts, or the dazzling talents of Tim Edge? Not that I even knew who Boston United were at the time, of course.’

Boss Steve Evans, looking through the records, was shocked at the size of Boston United’s crowds.

‘Shit,’ Evans said. ‘I’ve been telling everyone we got 300 a game until I showed up, yet clearly this club was attracting more. Over a thousand showed up to watch Matlock? In mid-week? Seriously? Oh fuck.’

Chris Cook’s Print Shop has produced a 70 page glossy program with interviews with Mel Sterland and Steve Circuit, a ‘Where are they now?’ section, and two hundred classic games painstakingly reported by the legendary Dr Ken Fox.

‘These will sell for £3.50 each,’ Sotnick said, ‘and will help us fund our new ground.’
