Loughborough University



Boston Town came back down to earth against title contenders Loughborough University.

Already without Jordan Tate, Liam Harris, Ricahrd Ford and Ollie Pinner, the Poachers suffered a huge blow when Kyle Watkins was injured in the warm-up and had to be replaced by Liam Tunstall.

Hakim Nyariki made his debut, with Hugo Elwood coming on as a sub for hsi first appearance for the club.

Following back-to-back wins, the Poachers gave as good as they got in the first half - but a goal for the Scholars on the stroke of half-time changed the course of the match.

After the break the home side went on to score three more, although Luke White grabbed a late consolation, his sixth of the season.

Boston boss Gary Edgley admitted it was a "tough day at the office" on their first visit to the impressive university set-up at Loughborough.

Next up is a home derby against Pinchbeck on Tuesday at the DWB Stadium, KO 7.45pm.

* Boston Town Reserves lost 5-3 away at Woodhall Spa, goals coming from Kyle Tate, Bescoby and Ayton.

Town: Portas, Armond, Luto, Moulds, Tunstall (Beeson), Cartwright, Nyariki (Elwood), Cunliffe, White, Beck, Bayliss
