Goals galore Goals galore

Gary Edgley says fans are really getting their money’s worth after his side made it 14 goals in four games with their thumping 5-1 win against Pinchbeck.

The Poachers have now won three of their last four games, with the other two victories seeing them score four against both Lutterworth Town and Peterborough Northern Star.

The Boston Town boss said he was really pleased with Tuesday’s  victory over local rivals Pinchbeck.

Edgley said: “I thought our first half performance was brilliant and we really took the game to Pinchbeck, played at a good tempo and controlled the game. I said before the game that I felt if we scored first we would win and so it proved.

“There were some big performances out there with everyone playing their part, again anyone that came to the game 100% got their money’s worth.

“Captain Stacy Cartwright marshalled his defence well all night, the only time they looked dangerous was from set plays. My midfield four worked their socks off in and out of possession breaking on their defence all night and creating chances for my front two all night.

“I was also pleased with Finlay Armond and Patrick Muirhead. These two lads joined us at the start of the season by attending a trials day that we had. They have then progressed through our reserves team that Leon Marsh is doing a sterling job at and have broken into the first team. Finlay started last night for the second game on the spin and had a brilliant game, with Patrick coming off the bench to have a brilliant 30 minutes and score his first goal for the first team. 

“The quality of some of the goals as well was brilliant to watch - Beeson’s second, Muirhead’s (a great team goal) and Beck’s second were all very well taken goals and I have enjoyed watching them again today thanks to Russell Dossett filming the game and sending me the highlights.

“That’s three league wins in our last four games scoring 14 goals in those games, and it’s moved us up the league to 11th with games in hand on everyone around us.

“But it’s important we don’t rest on this and now push hard to keep us going in the right way. We now have a 10 day break until we play again so the lads will have a little break which will do them good.”
