Boston Town manager Gray Edgley has led the tributes to Fraser Bayliss’s father.
Graham Bayliss, who died this week, was a great friend of the club and will be sorely missed.
There was a minute’s silence before yesterday’s game against Selston and the Poachers wore black armbands.
Edgley said Bayliss showed great courage in opting to play the game despite his bereavement.
He took the player off before the end to allow him to receive a warm round of applause from supporters at the Mortgages For You Stadium.
Edgley said Bayliss had done everything but score in the game and had done his father proud.
