At the Jones & Co. Stadium/Cannon Park
Retford United (1) 2
Chris Funnell 1, 80 (pen)
Boston United (0) 0
The attendance at the weekend was just 65, tonight a crowd of almost 90 turned out.
Masochism is evidently alive and well in East Retford.
|Get well soon Jamie|
Though the Lincolnshire side were organised, well drilled, passed the ball around well and exhibited some great movement for each other off the ball, a home win always looked to be the most likely outcome and a Chris Funnell double saw the Badgers home comfortably, with his first strike coming inside the opening minute, when he drilled in a shot from just inside the Boston area, and he dispatched the ball into the bottom corner of the visitors goal from the penalty spot with ten minutes remaining.
|Stop tugging at it Luke Walker, you'll go blind!|
As my decision to visit Cannon Park was a very last minute one, I'd had no time to prepare properly to do a report, or even get hold of the team line ups, so that's all you're getting for tonight.
At least you were spared my excessive preamble and long winded mithering tonight... I'll be back!
FT: Retford United 2 v Boston United U21 0
It was clear to see after the game, that the resilient hardcore fans who'd turned out tonight, genuinely appreciated the gesture of the Badgers players when they came over to thank them for their support after the game.
