Boston United Res 0-3 Cleethorpes Town Res
Boston United Reserves slumped to a 3-0 home defeat on the opening day of the Sills and Betteridge Lincolnshire League campaign.
Missed chances proved costly as Cleethorpes took a 25th minute lead through James DEEMING from the penalty spot.
Town doubled their lead a minute before half-time through DEEMING.
The second half started with three missed chances for the Pilgrims but Cleethorpes continued to press and were rewarded on 60 minutes when a free-kick was awarded for a sloppy tackle on the edge of the box.
The set-piece was expertly curled around the wall by Marc SAWYER, giving keeper Sam Vince no chance at all.
United lost the services of experienced defender Mark Thompson to a hamstring injury after only 10 minutes.
Boston (4-4-2): Sam Vince; Grant Butler, Lewis Sturman, Ollie Pinner, Mark Thompson (Jake Portas 10); Liam Ogden, Jake Beauchamp, Adam Lester (Keiron Elliott 50), Joe Briers; Jordan Nuttell, Dominic Thelen (Mitch Eustace 50). Sub (not used): Nigel Vince.
