A Visit to Boston United

On 28th July 2010 I visited Blue Square North side Boston United’s ground York Street.

During a day out in Boston me and my Dad decided to pay a visit to Boston United. The club had been in the football league a few season’s ago but had financial difficulties and got demoted. After winning promotion from the Unibond Premier, they kick off the new season in the Blue Square North, just two levels away from the football league.

When we arrrived we headed to the main club office, where we were greeted by John Blackwell, who we were later told had been with Boston for 32 years. He was very friendly and invited us into the ground to have a look.

The ground was very nice, much too good for the level they were at. It reminded me a bit of Boothferry Park, Hull City’s old ground which we had visited a few years ago. We did a full tour of the ground, going in each stand and taking plenty of photographs.

After spending about an hour inside the ground we went back to the office to thank John for letting us in to have a look around. He was kind enough to give us a free programme for their pre-season matches against Grimsby Town and Grantham Town, and we also bought a review of the season, in which they won promotion, and it is a good read.

York Street is a very nice football ground, and I can see the team getting back near the football league in a few seasons time.
