FA Vase derby FA Vase derby

Boston Town aim to rediscover their long-lost FA Vase form at the weekend.
The competition has had precious little sparkle for the Poachers in recent seasons.
In 1994 they enjoyed a memorable run to the semi-finals, falling agonisingly short of playing at Wembley.
But the last time they won a game in the Vase was in 2013 was when they beat Downham Town and Blackstones. Since then, they've had a dismal run of 7 defeats in a row in the competition.
Boss Gary Edgley will be hoping to put that right against local rivals Sleaford Town in the 1st Qualifying Round on Saturday (19 September).
The Greens could be something of an unknown quantity, having only played two games so far this season - their last three fixtures have been postponed because of a positive coronavirus test in their squad.
There's also the small matter of prize money at stake - £550 going the winners, who will be away to Hucknall Town or Anstey Nomads in the 2nd Qualifying Round on Saturday 10 October.
The tie at the DWB Stadium kicks off at 3pm.
The matchday sponsor is the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Florida.
Bostonian Andy Sandall, a former Poachers programme editor and kitman, is director of the Daytona-based museum.
