PINCHBECK UNITED 2 BOSTON TOWN 6: IAN Dunn admitted that Pinchbeck were taught a bit of a lesson as the Poachers hit his side for six on Saturday.

The player/boss lamented a “crazy spell” that saw Boston batter four first-half goals in 20 minutes, effectively ending the game as a contest.

But Dunn was still keen to take the positives, with strikes from Mark Lovelace and himself being the first goals shipped by UCL Premier Division side Town in pre-season.

The Pinchbeck supremo said: “To be honest we matched them early on, but a crazy 20 minutes and numerous basic errors really turned the game against us.

“It wasn’t our best performance, but I’m always keen to take the positives.

“I believe we’re the first team to score against them this season, which is encouraging.”

Sadly for Dunn and his side, there were also negatives – including a mini-injury crisis.

Keeper Tom Roberts was taken off with suspected broken ribs, while Ollie Maltby and Dan Woods both picked up knocks.

Tom Gosling, Matt Hocking, Dan Cole and Dunn himself are also unavailable for Saturday’s Peterborough Premier Division opener against King’s Cliffe (3pm).

The game was part of Pinchbeck’s club day at the Glebe Field.
