Our heroes in red were soundly beaten by Boston United, 1-0 at the Stade de Gigg. Despite controlling the game for the first half an hour, FC United fell apart defensively and were lucky not to go in more than one goal down. Possibly the only highpoint of the game was seeing the return of Jerome Wright, who came on as a half-time substitute. Away from the action, playing a team like Boston was a real thrill, and a measure of how far our club has come. Three years ago, when we were starting our wonderful journey in the North West Counties League, Boston United were a league side. And look at us now, going toe to toe with them. Top stuff.
BobBlackburn Park Avenue were held to a 1-1 draw by Worksop Town. Worksop, who are yet to win this season, took a lead in to the break with a goal in the forty-second minute. BPA equalised just after the hour. Meanwhile the BPA fans are starting to worry about some of their players. “It’s as if they’re only here for the money and don’t care about the club.” moaned one of their lot, as the result of the footballing world shrugged in unison.
Guiseley finally slipped up, dropping points for the first time this season following a 1-1 draw at home to Matlock. However, they remain top of the table on goal difference, but level on points with Hednesford and Ilkeston, who beat Witton Albion and Frickley Athletic respectively.
FC United’s next opponents, Whitby Town remain completely pointless following a 3-2 defeat at home to Kendal. So that’s a guaranteed win for them next week. The only team between Whitby and the bottom is Prescot Cables, who also lost 3-2, but away to Nantwich,.
Leigh Genesis continue to vex me, winning at Ossett Town. And Eastwood continue to frighten the bejesus out of me by donning some leather chaps and climbing on top of North Ferriby before spunking five goals all over their back.
