Hall of Fame No. 10

Long-serving midfielder is inducted into the Hall of Fame

Ross Don-Duncan (Midfielder 1994 - 2007)

It must be hard enough when your dad's the boss - in any walk of life, whether a school teacher, factory foreman or football manager.

But when you're dad is an absolute legend, that makes it even tougher.

Bob Don-Duncan is quite simply the most successful manager Boston Town have ever had - however, the challenge of playing for his father's team didn't faze his son Ross one bit.

An imposing, no-nonsense midfielder, he first became a regular in the Boston Town team in 1995-96.

He soon established himself and was an integral part of the side for more than a decade.

Known for his powerful shots from distance -  particularly from free-kicks - and his dangerous long throw-ins, Ross played a key role for the Poachers for 13 seasons, making well over 400 appearances in the process.

He scored his fair share of goals - more than 50 in all.

Perhaps his most significant goal was at the very end of the 2000-01 season, in which he notched a personal best tally of 10 for the campaign. The title race had gone to the wire and his 68th minute penalty against Buckingham on the final day - together with Ian Shooter's dramatic injury time equaliser - helped the Poachers earn the point they needed to be crowned champions.
