TIGERS: Change of plan for Holbeach

Have your say

HOLBEACH United will now host Boston United Reserves tomorrow (Saturday) after a sickness bug hit original opponents Hinton FC.

The Carter’s Park clash is the Tigers’ final pre-season fixture ahead of the new United Counties League season, which gets under way next Saturday.

With Hinton likely to be short on numbers, Tigers boss John Chand wasn’t willing to lend them any of his players in order to contest the fixture – so he quickly drafted in the Pilgrims’ second string.

Boston boss Glen Maddison hopes to field a strong side, with Adam Millson and Jason Field both set to figure.

Holbeach have won all five of their pre-season games – including a 16-1 drubbing of Old Leake last time out.

Kick-off is 3pm.
