RAF to deliver tonight's matchball
Pilgrims set to re-stage Carlisle stunt
Ever anxious to boost falling attendances, Boston United officials have announced that the matchball for tonight’s clash with Chester City at York Street will be delivered by the RAF five minutes before kick off.
The Pilgrims were given the idea after a Sea King helicopter swooped to deliver the ball on Saturday before the 4-2 defeat at Carlisle. The Sea King, from Flight 202 squadron at RAF Boulmer, made a spectacular landing in front of the large crowd and the ball was hand-delivered to the match officials by a crew member.
With that in mind, United will be evacuating York Street before kick-off with fans asked to head for a temporary bunker set up at Boston Grammar School.
John Blackwell told impsTALK: “At about half-seven we’ll sound
the air-raid siren, and at that point I would urge all fans to descend
in a state of blind panic and run… run for their bloody lives.”
The RAF has promised to keep collateral damage and civilian deaths to a minimum and said they were hopeful that retail outlet Matalan may be able to re-open by Spring 2007
