Poachers are knocked out of the FA Cup

Deeping 6, Boston Town 1

Boston Town crashed heavily out of the Emirates FA Cup, finishing on the wrong side of a 6-1 pummeling from a busy Deeping Rangers side.

However it was not the manner of the defeat that left Boston fans with a bitter taste in the mouth but the choice of line-up made by manager Mark Angel. Inexpicably he changed the side that had thrashed Harrowby in midweek and left out wing wizard Jack Wightwick and midfield general Lori Borbely from the starting line-up.

Deeping took the lead against the run of play on 26 minutes from a Billy Oliver's powerful header. As with Tuesday's game the seemingly makeshift Boston team hit back and should have had chance to equalize when Alex Beck appeared to be held back in the penalty area by the last man. Much to the disbelief of Town players and spectators alike referee Saunsby waved play on. Five minutes later Deeping increased their lead when Mooney fired home after ping-pong in the Town penalty area.

A miserable afternoon was further compounded for the Poachers when Parker was tripped in the penalty area when clean through - he managed to stay on his feet and get a shot away, only to be denied by the excellent Bircham in the Rangers net. If he'd gone down instead as some players might have done, it looked a stonewall penalty.

To add insult to injury five minutes later the Boston defence failed to deal with a long punt forward which hung in the tricky swirling wind and Deeping pounced to make it 3-0. They would go on to snatch another before half time and go in at the break with an incredible four goal advantage.

Changes were made at the start of the interval with Wightwick finally being given his bow, albeit 45 minutes too late. Surprisingly Lambley, who had not put a foot wrong all game, and Ashton, were replaced, Borbely also taking to the field. This meant that Aaron Eyett who had looked lively in the first period was forced to play right back.

Wightwick and Borbely made an immediate impact on the game, but Deeping went further ahead. Kennedy got some consolation for the Poachers, finally beating Bircham with a long shot. Beck was replaced by Ford, having turned an ankle as a result of an unpunished heavy tackle.

Deeping's sixth had an element of farce. In the build up Boston's Parker appeared to be scythed down but again nothing was given by the official.
