Boston United’s future appears to have been secured after an extraordinary last minute deal struck with HMRC.
The agreement with the club’s main creditor was reached late last week ending, temporarily at least, months of uncertainty surrounding the York Street outfit.
The news was announced by Chairman David Newton before the Hyde United game on Saturday – but impsTALK can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Newton was so convinced the club was set to fold, he’d already prepared a draft speech announcing the demise of the Pilgrims.
In fact, the club was only saved by a last-gasp agreement after Newton dispatched vice-chairman Neil Kempster to HMRC HQ in Worthing to ‘sort out’ the small matter of a settlement of the club’s hilarious Company Voluntary Agreement.
An anonymous eyewitness, who wished only to be referred to as Boston United FC press officer Craig Singleton, took impsTALK aside in the Pescod Square multi-storey car park to reveal the details of the astonishing deal struck with HMRC.
Singleton explained in detail how Kempster was ordered down south on Tuesday afternoon.

Newton was apparently so convinced he’d never hear from his vice-chairman again that he began writing what he felt would be the grim death knell for the Pilgrims ahead of a planned on pitch announcement ahead of the Hyde game.
“It was going to be bad news,” Singleton said. “So Newton told [kit-man] Jason Hatfield he’d have to read it on his behalf - and he was going to go watch Lincoln City at Morecambe."
Meanwhile, nothing was heard of Kempster until late Thursday afternoon, when a sinister black van sped down York Street.
“It must have been doing at least 50mph,” said important York Street resident Bob Mugfret-Fishhead. “The back doors flew open and Kempster was pushed out.”
Kempster staggered to Newton’s office sporting three black eyes, ten broken ribs, a shredded suit and ‘BEG YOU BITCH’ scrawled across his forehead in black marker pen.
“Sorted - we’re saved,” he is reported to have told Newton, before collapsing to the floor.
added: “After he’d come around, Kempster asked if he should
tell the fans that a deal had been reached, but David just said thanks
for the effort - but he’d do that bit. And could murder a cup of
