Pilgrims' Fans on the Net
Now's your chance to let the world know you support the best team in
Lincolnshire! Many other team pages have a list of their supporters on the Net
so let's have a go at our own.
I have now introduced an anti-spam measure. Some nasty people out there
have created computer programs that automatically search web pages for e-mail
addresses. They use the addresses they find to spew out junk mail. So to
disguise your e-mail addresses I have replaced the @ symbol by a # and the .
by a +. Because you are all intelligent people, you should be able to get back
to the real address fairly easily so you can get in touch with your friends,
and it should help to cut down on the spam e-mails you receive.
- We are up to 686 fans on-line at present.
- How far away is our furthest supporter? (Currently Charlie Blakey in Dunedin, New Zealand - 11,779 miles away)
- Will you find that long lost friend?
- Will the Lincolnshire Standard write an article about us? (Yes! See page 7
of the 13th November 1997 edition)

How do. My name's Les and I live in the Antartic - does that make me the
furthest away Utd fan? (No, it's only 9872 miles to the South Pole from
York Street, just head south and keep going! - KF). I'm currently doing
research into the melting of the polar ice caps. I don't get to see many
matches as you might imagine, but I follow the team from the website. Best
of luck to the team and let's hope division 2 welcomes us next year -
- Rupert Abbott (winkle_no1#yahoo+com)
Greetings to all you Boston Utd fans out there. My name's Rupert, more
commonly known as 'Winkle'. I am a 25 year old resident of Boston and
spend most of my time (when not watching Boston Utd), pickling eggs and
updating my family tree, as well as working part time as a Shaolin monk.
My favourite players are Paul Ellender and Daryl Clare. Best of luck to
the team for the end of the season and let's hope we can fend off the
(Dirty!!) Daggers, to win the Conference league title. P.S. If you are
reading this and are the nice girl who works in the refreshment stall in
the Finnforest stand, please drop me a line.
- Albert Abcock (albert#jinglyjangly+co+uk)
Hiya all, Boston United is my life! I have just recently painted my
outside lavvy in the Pilrim's colours. My 6 month old daughter is call
Claire, my dog Evans and I have a wonderfull collection of hard boiled
eggs painted with the faces of the Boston players: Paul Bastock looks the
best but Charlery has been scrambled! I go to all the home games and you
can see me near the players tunnel each time because everywhere else is
too noisey because of all the shouting! COME ON BOSTON!
- Paul Adams (pjadams#onenet+au)
I live in Perth, Western Australia. In 1967 my parents came to Australia
from Boston. My Dad played in goal for United reserves in the 1950s, his
name is John Adams. I last saw United play in 1975 when we came for a
family holiday, the game was a two all draw against Great Harwood! I
still have family in Boston and keep in touch with them.

I am 16 years of age and I like playing football as well as watching it.
- Dawn Addison (Paul#PMasterman+fsnet+co+uk)
I started watching Boston about 2 years ago, when my boyfriend Paul got
me into them. He's got me hooked and I'm nearly as big a fan as him. I
go to every home game and a few away games too. My fave player is Mark

I followed my sister Dawn into supporting The Pilgrims and now I think
they are the best. Grantham suck!!
- Liam Addlesee (addlesee#madhouse+com)
I am 12 years old, although I was born in Luton I have followed the
Pilgrims through rain or shine since I was born. My favorite player is
Bazza. I am a Townender and on Saturday afternoons my hobby is plastering
Boston stickers all over away grounds, and I hate Granfum as much as I
- Marc Addlesee (addlesee#madhouse+com)
I live in Dunstable, Beds. I am 10 years old. I follow BOSTON all over
the country. I play football for Luton Town centre of excellence but one
day I hope to play for Boston. When I was 4 years old I was Boston's
mascot when they played Macclesfield at home. My gran and grandad live
near Boston and my dad was born there and they are United supporters.

- Tim Allen (tim+a+allen#uk+pwcglobal+com)
I was extremely lucky in the fact that I was born in Boston 24 years ago.
Alas I now live in London but obviously frequently return to Boston to
sample the internationally renowned nightlife and to the Mecca of
football, York Street to watch the sensational pilgrims. Have seen a few
of the matches this season and surely if we continue like this then
league football beckons!
- Dale Allitt (dale#allitt+freeserve+co+uk)
I was born in Boston and although I moved to Nottingham I continued to
support the Pilgrims. Since moving back to the area I have tried to get
to as many games as possible. After a couple of season finishing second
this must be the one where we get promoted don't you all agree?
- Alan Anderson (shalan#uk+packardbell+org)
I am 32 years old, married with two children. I moved from Scotland to
Kirton two years ago after leaving the army. I work for Geest in
Spalding. I went to my first Boston match just after Steve took over,
and haven't missed a game since then.
- Jack Anderson (jon.anderson7869#freeserve+net)
I am not even two years old yet but I will soon be at York Street to
cheer on the boys. I will be standing with my dad and papa.
- Jon Anderson (jon.anderson7065#freeserve+net)
I have followed Boston for a few years now, even though I live down
south I get to as many home games as possible and stand in the famous
TOWNEND with me dad. COME ON UNITED. BOSTON UNITED. BOSTON UNITED.
- Scott Ansley (phatuuk#hotmail+com)
Hi! I'm a 16 yr old Pilgrims' fan from Rotherham. I have followed them
since I was 12 due to my grandad supporting them. I've only ever been to
one match though which was against Doncaster Rovers at Doncaster in which
boston won.... I hope Boston carry on their success and head into
- Steve Appleyard (srapple#tiscali+co+uk)
I am a 35yr old football fanatic. I am married with 2 children aged 7 &
3. I work in the garage trade in Boston and attend as many home games as
I can with my 8 yr old daughter. Hope to see Division 3 football at York
Street one day.
- Laura Appleyard (srapple#tiscali+co+uk)
I really like Daryl Clare and Bazza and wish them luck this season. Hope
to see our boss back soon. I am 8 years old and love Boston and Leeds and
I hope we stay at York Street and bring back more silverware. I also love
S Club and Looking in the Mirror.
- Alison Arbon (ali2001vg#hotmail+com)
I have been a fan of Boston Utd for about 6 years. Years ago my mum went
to see them at Wembley. My mate works in Boston and goes to the matches.
- Daniel Ashton (palada#ashlea44+freeserve+co+uk)
My dad goes to see the Pilgrims every home game, I'm only 3 so I'm a bit
too young to go to a full game, but mum takes me to York Street to see
the last 10 minutes of play while we wait for dad. I can understand the
game a little, the men in yellow are Boston 'cos dad has told me to
shout "come on you yellows" and I'm not sure why the supporters insist
on calling the man in black rude names, but mum said that it will all
become clearer as I get older, whatever that means! Good luck to Steve
and the boys for a memorable first season back in the Conference and
hopefully Division 3 in the near future!
- Daz Auty (dauty#pcpro-gb+de)
I've lived in Boston since I was 12 and have watched and supported Boston
Utd since then. I went to school at Kitwood boys and left at 16 to join
the army. After training I was posted to Germany and I have been in Menden
Dortmund and now Paderborn since 1987. Within that period I've been to Cyprus
twice and Northern Ireland once, all 6 month tours. In July I'm due to be
posted back to the UK to be a sergeant instructer in Bovington, Dorset.
I'm married with 3 kids - 2 girls and boy. My son Jay was born on 01/01/2000
and he will be an avid Boston supporter like myself. When I am on leave I
always watch them and take my 5 year old daughter Tara with me. I know Andrew
Stanhope very well - it's a Wigtoft thing. Up the Pilgrims.
- David Avison (mavison#lineone+net)
I'm a Lincoln City And Pilgrims fan From Woodhall Spa.
- Neil Avison (boston#ic24+net)
I have been a Pilgrims fan for 30 years now, and over the years have seen
some good players (and some awful). Steve Evans has got a good squad
together so Conference beware.
- Adrian Baily (Abaily#aol+com)
I was born and raised in Boston, where most of my family still live. I
was an avid Pilgrims fan until I left to go to college at Coventry in
1988. I then moved to Bristol (129 miles from York Street as the Martin
Hardy clearance flies) where I still live. While temporarily working on
a development project in Seattle, Washington USA, I found the site
invaluable in keeping up-to-date with United news. I also found an old
friend of mine living in Boston, Massachusetts via the site and was able
to meet up for lunch.
- Leah Bailey (Leah+Bailey#btinternet+com)
I have liked Boston properly since Joby joined. Although I have followed
the results for a while (along with Grantham and Billinghay Athletic!)
I'm 15. I live in Billinghay. I have a web page (http://bounce.to/leah)
Lincoln City are good too.
- Matt Bailey (v2k#supanet+com)
I am fan of the Pilgrims, and always will be. Come on lads, keep up the
good work. We can get to the Football league and teach them how to play
proper football. Bring it home Boys! If we move stadium make sure the
Town End is rebuilt!
- Daz Bain (daz+kate#ic24+net)
I have been a Pilgrims supporter for 18 Years - I stood at the Townend
when there was only a dozen or so in the early eighties. Memorable games
- all leading up to the Wembley final especially Blyth at home, Sheffield
Utd and Bury in the Cup.
- Mike Bain (mikebain#excite+co+uk)
Born in Boston in '43 and educated at Park Rd Sch and the Grammar Sch. A
regular Pilgrims home supporter - (even went to White Hart Lane and the
Baseball ground for the cup games) before leaving the area in '58.
Currently married with grown-up family and in business in Runcorn,
Cheshire. Looking forward to seeing United at Chester City next season!
- Dave Baines (dwb#dcs+ed+ac+uk)
Born and raised in Boston, I was a regular at York Street from the 67/68
to 74/75 seasons. I left to go to University in London and then moved up
to Edinburgh (241 miles from York Street) about 14 years ago so I've not
seen many games in recent years.
- Judie Baines-Dinning (RABBD#aol+com)
I have been a Boston Utd fan since I was 11 years old (a long time). I
moved away from Boston when I was 17 yrs old but have now moved back to
Lincolnshire and live not far away, in Bourne. So I bring my 11 yr old
daughter Alys, to the matches whenever I can. Living in a house full of
Arsenal fans we put up with a lot of stick but still love The Pilgrims
- Jason Bains (jason+bains#virgin+net)
I have lived in the area all my life, first at Splisby now Old Leake.
Played local and Lincolnshire league football for Spilsby since I left
school and have always followed the Pilgrims. This season I have only
missed a couple of home games and made the trip to Dagenham the other
night. Next season I intend to buy a season ticket even if we are not
- Sue Baker (jackiesue22#netscapeonline+co+uk)
When I lived in Boston I used to go to as many matches as possible, now
that I am living in London it is obviously more difficult. However I
always listen to the results on Saturdays to see how they are doing and
I'm looking forward to going to see them when they play teams in our
area this season.
- Besmir Bala (besmir1#yahoo+com)
I'm a 17 year old student and I also support Arsenal.
- Simon Balsom (balsom#qualitynet+net)
Now living in Kuwait (you may have heard of it), I became a fan in the
late 70's in the days of Jim Kabia et al. Didn't we think they'd go up
every year!? Best match: when we came back from 0-2 to beat Wigan 4-2.
Best moment: when Gerry Stewart (gk) scored from a free kick in our
half! I have educated the guys out here, and there is some respect for
the Pilgrims around the poolside out in Kuwait! The only match I'll see
this season will be on Boxing Day vs. York City. It will be a first
football match for my 4 year old son, Oliver, and also for my 72 year old
Dad, Jim. What a day it will be! Will I get the Replica Shirts in time?

My family are all from Boston, and I was born there, although I now live
in Woodhall Spa (14 miles from York Street) and go to university in
Loughborough. I have to admit that my first team is actually Man Utd,
though I've been watching Boston since the age of five.
- Andy Barlow (andy#boston7+freeserve+co+uk)
I first went to York Street when I was eleven and ever since have been a
firm supporter. Hopefully I will be part of the BUFC quiz team to be
entered in the Boston and District 1999/2000 quiz league so watch this
- Rob Barnard (brian+barnard#tesco+net)
Me and Stephen Wood have been to every home game in the 2001-2002 season.
We went to see 5 away games and we are proud to support Boston United as
we'd rather be a Pilgrim than an Imp.
- Tara Barnett (labarnett#btinternet+com)

Hello, my name is Geoff and I am from Fort Collins, Colorado USA were I
attend Colorado State University. I have been passionate about soccer
for as long as I can remember but it was not until World Cup '98 that I
discovered the greatness of the English game. I have been following
English football ever since and about midway through last season I
stumbled upon The Pilgrims over the internet, and was thrilled by their
championship season. Now I am hooked on the Pilgrims, and looking
forward to seeing them in the Football League!

time at a nursing home. And I love Boston United.
- Andy Beal (ajbeal#supanet+com)
I currently live in Peterborough, but have followed United from around
the world. I run my own club now P & T Panthers in the Junior
alliance league here in Peterborough so I can't follow Boston as often as
I would like. Married with five kids of whom all, apart from the wife
support United. Attended Kitwood Boys School between 73 and 78 so anybody
who remembers please get in touch.

I love comin' to watch the lads - standing in the town end and singing my

I'm fifteen years old and live for United. I only missed two games last
season. Favourite players: Bastock, De Souza and Rennie. I, like many other
United supporters, think that Steve Evans is GOD! We will win the Conference
even if it takes us a couple of seasons.
- Jan-Willem Besuijen (w+j+besuijen#kub+nl)
Hello Pilgrims' fans! I like little (no offence!) English football clubs,
because they play the real football. That's why I visited this great site.
Something about myself: I am 21 years old and I support Willem II, the
best Dutch league side. I live in Tilburg and I am at Tilburg University
to study Arts. I hope it will be a fantastic season for Boston, ze
hebben een speciaal plekje in mijn hart (they have a special place in my
- Ray and Cheryl Bilbie (raybilbie#hotmail+com)
We are from Nottingham and our home side is Forest but we like to watch
grass roots football, so on Sat 6th Oct we came to watch the Pilgrims
v Scarborough. We were impressed by the facilities at York St, there are
worse grounds in the Football League. The fans were great and the team
look promising. We went in the supporters' bar and watched the England
game on the big screen. The people of Boston made us so welcome that we
will be regular visitors to the club in the future. GOOD LUCK BOSTON!
- Andy Birkett (stuart#birkettbur+freeserve+co+uk)
I'm now a hardy Yorkshire lad, but was born in Boston and lived there for
18 years. I've been following the boys in amber and black for about 5 years
now, and I'm convinced 99/2000 is THE season. It's good to get back to
Boston and see the Pilgrims play, as I get more than a little tired of
hearing about Leeds and Bradford City... it makes a change to see some real

Sister of Andy and Philip on this page. I am a fairly new fan of the
Pilgrims. I hope one day (soon) to see Boston in the Conference and then
after that, who knows? Good luck Boston, this season and forever!
- Phil Birkett (stuart#birkettbur+freeserve+co+uk)
I've lived in Boston all my life and have been cheering the Pilgrims on
since the 96/97 season. Brother of Andy (also listed here), he took me
to my first game: the home defeat against Barrow. I've never looked
back. To the Conference and beyond!
- Martyn Bishop (Martyn.Bishop#btinternet+com)
I'm a Bostonian by birth and have supported Utd (on and off) since
watching them as a 9 year old with my dad in 1958. I now watch them with
my 2 sons (3rd generation supporters!) who are following on in the
- Nick Bishop (nickbishop#lycos+co+uk)
I've supported the Pilgrims since the age of about 9, when my dad took me
to York street for the first time. In the 2000/2001 season I attended
every home game and a handful of away games. However, this season I've
been unable to attend the majority of games due to me being away at uni.
Will always follow the Pilgrims and keep sporting the shirt where ever I
go. Sing your hearts for the lads!!!
- Nathan Black (nab92721#yahoo+com)
Hello out there! I was born in Boston and have lived there most of my
life. University finally dragged me away, but I have now returned to
Boston. I live a street away from the ground and now work for the Boston
Standard as a reporter. You can find out more about me by visiting my home

Up the Pilgrims!
- Ady Blackamore (ablackamore#aol+com)
I was born in Boston went to Tower Road then Kittwood Boys. I used to go
and watch Boston in my teenage years, even sneaked in over the
Gliderdrome many times. Then shortly after Wembley stopped going. A few
months ago I started to watch THE PILGRIMS again with my 6 year old son
Macaulay and I must say I was impressed and carried on going. I was there
to see history in the making at Hayes (was you) and enjoyed every minute of
it even the rain. What a day out. JUST GOT TO SAY WELL DONE TO THE BOYS AND
THE MAIN MAN STEVIE EVANS YOU'VE DONE BOSTON PROUD. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
Me and my boy are proud to stand at the town end and sing our hearts out for
the lads. You can count on our support. One more thing, see you daggers,
you're not even in our league. Cheer up Gary Hill, what can it mean (YOU
KNOW THE REST LADS).
- Ian Blackamore (KAZZIAN#kbarnett+fsbusiness+co+uk)
Boston born and bred, first went with my Dad to York St in the fifties,
watched them again in West Midland League, NPL, Alliance etc. Lost faith
in the late eighties, with a series of poor managers the club seemed to
lack ambition. Returned when I thought, first Mel Sterland then Greg Fee
was the man, but now I know, Steve Evans, he's 'The Man'. Happy memory,
Portsmouth in the F.A. Cup, despite losing, getting evicted from the
ground and having to get back in, a great day, helped "T-Rex" roadies to
take gear into Gliderdrome and got free tickets. Now stand with my son
behind Skull and Crossbones flag.
- Justin Blackamore (KAZZIAN#kbarnett+fsbusiness+co+uk)
I am 14 years old and go to the Giles School. I have supported Boston Utd
for around 4 years now. I go to all the home games and have watched them
away several times. I like to stand in the Town End, usually with my Dad,
with my skull and crossbones flag. I hope one day to see the "Pilgrims"
in the Football League.
- Simon Blackburn (simonjblackburn#another+com)
I live in Nottingham and I support Boston United and Nottingham Forest!
My favourite player is "Bazza".
- Charlie Blakey (alfandcharlie#clear+net+nz)
Moved to New Zealand in 1996 and live in Dunedin in the South Island (11779
miles from York Street). Have followed the Pilgrims since I was 10 in the
days of Kevin Hector & Co. I might have to lay claim to the remotest
fan award. Best moment was Bob Lee's goal against Altrincham which took us
to the FA Trophy final in 1985.
- Colin Bland (colin#fastlane+screaming+net)
I was born in Boston in 1951. I attended Staniland School and Boston
Grammar School. I have been a lifelong supporter despite moving away
from the area. I fondly remember the FA Cup game against Derby when
United drew at the Baseball Ground - shame about the replay!
- Adrian Blow (damienblow#aol+com)
I have supported Boston through thick an thin since I was six years old.
I attend all home matches and think that Steve Evans has turned my club
around. I expect to consolidate this season, although League football
remains my dream. Come on you Pilgrims!

Born in Boston in 1961 (nee Carter). I was a regular visitor to York St
in the seventies before going to Trent Poly to do my degree. I now live

- Graham Boyall (graham#dboyall+freeserve+co+uk)
I am originally from Spilsby but until recently was living in Chippenham in
Wiltshire. I am now living near Newark and so I can get over to Boston much
more often. I try and see as amny games as I can and I really enjoy this
web-site, especially the clips and the chants!
- Joe Bradbury (bradbury#hbradbury+freeserve+co+uk)
I've seen Boston on both good days and very bad days. I go with my
cousin Callum Bates and my grandad (still very young always walking the
whole mile to the ground and he sometimes beats me home). Callum plays
football sometimes with Andy Stanhope who is related distantly to me.
My favourite players are Rawle, Appleby (who I live near) and Joby.
- Tim Bradbury (tim_brad#yahoo+com)
Currently in Atlanta USA (4172 miles from York Street - Seattle was too
far from York Street). Followed last year's Championship run through this
page and clippings sent from the Lincolnshire Standard. Evans seems like
an ambitious manager who can back up that ambition. Let's hope a long
overdue visit to the Football League is around the corner. I drove Nigel
Harvey to the away leg of his favourite game in a Capri that was the same
colour as this web page. So come on NIG drop me a line. I tried your
email but got no response.
- Keith Bradshaw (kdb_016#yahoo+com)
I was born in Boston and moved away in 75 to join the air force but
before then I used to go to see the games with my old man Jack who is
still a season ticket holder going to all games. As for me, well claim
to fame was being a ball boy when Jim Smith was around and Howard
Wilkinson and even now I stun those boring conversations about premier
football by telling them of our 6-1 win aginst a 1st div team. I see how
they're getting on and in fact my son has been more times than me and
he's in Norwich.

I study animal care at the moment. When I visit Boston I always see my
grandad he always gives me a chance to go to York Street and my dad asks
me if I want to go to Old Trafford to watch UNITED! I really turned
them down, that's Man United of course. You know why? Because I'm mad
about BOSTON UNITED. Oh and Liverpool. Paul bastock keep those goals out
and dont retire, you are the best!

Long time follower, home and away, non barracker, I've made many good
friends, with the Pilgrims. I'm now 56 years old and I would like to see
us return to Wembley, win,... and going back up to the Conference would
be the icing on the cake. I live at a village called Wickersley in South

I have followed the Pilgrims from afar having lived in Gainsborough for

League. You fans deserve it. All the best for next season.

I am 12 years old and I love the team Boston United. I have just only
recently been supporting the Pilgrims but I am trying to attend all the
matches I can but I am struggling a bit because I live in Grimsby. We're
going into the football league.

I'm from Melbourne, Australia (10465 miles from York Street) and have only recently begun following
Boston due to my good friend 'Cookie' from the Town End. I spent about
5 months living in Sth. Yorks and Lincs 2 years ago and am dying to get
back to go to some REAL games of FOOTBALL. Well Cookie, there ya go!!!!
I signed on!!!!

I moved to Boston in 76 from Newcastle and lived there for about 13
years. The best times I had at York Street were after discovering you
could climb over the Gliderdrome roof and get in for nothing !!!!!.
Haven't seen them play for quite some time now though, but still get the
Standard sent to me so that I can keep up to date on all the news.

I have supported United for about six years. I go to every home game.
I have just been to my first away game this season (2000-2001), but I
plan to go to every game the Pilgrims play next season. I am 13 years
old and I live in Skegness. I think we have a bright future at York
Street. We should be playing League football in about two years.

As well as following the Pilgrims, I am also a fanatical Evertonian.
I usually stand on the Spayne Road stand with drinking partners Big Jim

away many years ago.
- Colin Burton (Colin.Burton#Culture+gov+uk)
Swineshead exile. A poor civil servant now working for my third Minister
for Sport. Oh well I achieved my main objective when I asked Kate Hoey
MP to visit York St and she accepted. I accompanied her to our game
against Rushden & Diamonds in March 2001. My first game was the 1982
Cup tie with Sheffield United. I then went home and away every week until
moving south in 1991. Went to every game on the road to Wembley in 1985
- and there weren't many of us in the fog at Alvechurch in December 1984!
Obviously the Unibond limited my appearances somewhat so it's refreshing
to be back in the big time and able to go to places like Dagenham after
work. I must make reference to Mr Fee at this point who had the team
playing marvellous stuff in 1996 but perhaps wasn't given the same
backing. Well, I'm the idiot who climbed up each floodlight pylon a few
years back to take loads of snaps - some of which appear elsewhere on this
site. Favourite players: wingers mainly like Dave Gilbert, Brian Thomson,
Stewart Hamill (as that's what I am) and players that interact with fans
like John McKenna & Martin Hardy. Good luck to PISA in getting
established - it still annoys me at the treatment the club gave the award
winning fanzine From Behind Your Fences. Thanks Mr Evans for getting my
team & town back making headlines.

I have lived at Swineshead near Boston all my life. I attend home matches
and most away matches. I help with checking the Alphabet Tote on Monday
nights and help around the ground during the Summer. I am looking forward to
the season when the club fulfills its potential for playing performances but
still remains friendly, maybe the Football For Life youth development
programme will form the basis.

I have been a Pilgrim for 23 years and long to witness again a team
parading a championship trophy around York Street. Hopefully this will
be achieved under Steve Evans astute leadership. All we need is for the
club to get it right off the pitch and all our dreams will be realised.
I attend all home games and away games when possible (most Saturdays).
- Daniel Butler (james#jwarsop+freeserve+co+uk)
I go and watch Boston every game home and away. Last season I travelled

game. UP THE PILGRIMS!

I have followed the club since I was taken to a Mather Cup match at
Shodfriars Lane, United v Aston Villa. It was in the 1946/7 season and
United won 4-2. Freddy Tunstall was the trainer and made a brief
appearance in the second half. I believe Jock Bayne was the keeper. I
stood with my father and several others on a farm wagon trailer placed
behind the goal for the occasion!! I left the area in 1957 but have
always looked for the results in the press and the last time I saw them
play was in the FA cup v Ilkeston Town when they came to this part of
the midlands. I have now retired and live in the Nottingham area. I have
spent many happy hours at the Ground in the late 40's and 50's. The most
memorable watch was the cup win over Derby County. The return journey on
the coach was a very lively affair!! Good luck for the rest of the
present season and and who knows I may hear from some contempory

was against Portsmouth in the FA Cup - which Pompey won 1-0. I have
followed Forest to Munich and Madrid but my favorite match was when me and
a few others went to follow Boston at Derby in the FA Cup, how Alan
Tewley's goal bound effort just stuck in the mud on the line still p$%%£"
me off.... Seeing the Pilgrims at Wembley was great to see, pity about the
result. I still look for their results every week and hopefully a place in
the football league is just around the corner. Conde, Svarc, Smith, White,

I was first introduced to the delights of football in Boston by Richard
Smith, inspired creator of the brilliant fanzine, `From Behind Your
Fences'. I used to work with Richard more than 12 years ago, when FBYF
seemed to have a greater circulation than Reader's Digest. After reading
a few issues, and having changed my pants more than once, it wasn't hard
to see why. Realising we shared at least the same sense of humour, not to
mention the same taste in underwear, Richard lost no time in asking me to
contribute to the next one by `fleshing out' his eponimous anti-hero,
Farmer Dan. Yes, I shall be going to `The Match' on the 10th and, along
with Richard and a few other committed individuals, will be selling the
long-awaited Issue 14 of FBYF. Now bigger, better and, at £1, half
the price and twice as funny as Viz. All female groupies gratefully

the best I have seen. Well done to the lads, and keep the success flowing.
- Chris Creek (chrisdcdxb#yahoo+co+uk)
I have been watching the Pilgrims since the early 70's with either my
Dad, Uncle or Grandad Charlie. The two games that stick out in my memory
are an away game at Kettering in the early 80's, with Kevin Hector
running rings around the opposition and the F.A Trophy game against Blyth
Spartans, winning 5-4 after being 1-3 down early in the second half. Both
games true classics! I now live and work in Dubai and get to games when
I'm home on holiday.

Now living in Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand, I class myself as someone
with fond memories of Boston Utd, which originate from a dull November
Wednesday in 1954 at Croft Park, Blyth, (K.O. 2.00pm no lights! Att:
10,000, plus school truants such as myself) when in an F.A. Cup replay,
my team - The Spartans, losing 4-2 just after half time, clinched it
with three mist shrouded goals in the last ten minutes (the balding
G.Gair a hat-trick). One apparently well founded story, is that during
the first game at Boston, the Blyth centre forward Charlie
Weather(Dinner)spoon was injured running back onto the field after half
time, when he fell down a manhole. He took no further part in the game,
but the 10 Spartans earned that epic replay. I look to my newly found
Bostonian links for confirmation or contradiction.

to watch them play Derby County at home in the FA Cup or the day trip to

relationship between e, π, i and -1. My favourite pastimes are solving
BUFC's chances of promotion by doing them mathematically. COME ON YOU YELLAS!!!
- Andy Dawson (dawsy#genie+co+uk)
I'm 15 years old and live in Skegness. Me and my mates Karl and Tett
come to every home game and stand in Spayne Road or the Town End. My
favourite players are Mark Rawle and Andy Stanhope. The best Pilgrims
game I have been to is the last home game of last season, the Town End
was packed and the atmosphere was electric. Let's get to Division 3.

Born in Cleethorpes, lived in Grantham until one year old (luckily). Grew
up in Boston, watched the Pilgrims as a lad, remember Casey, Cook, Devan
White etc, infamously tried to climb over roof once due to lack of
admission fee but failed. Best memories, Trophy semi final v Altrincham,
cup tie v Blyth Spartans (5-4) & clinching promotion by beating

Not an avid football fan but have heard a lot about you guys. So would
like to wish you all the best of success for the future. GOOD LUCK.
- John Dewars (robert+dewars#btinternet+com)
I have supported BUFC for the last three years hardly missing a home
game. Away games are a problem as I work Saturday mornings, but I do go
when I can. I have been a season ticket holder for the last two years. I
live in Kirton and work in Boston.
- Martin Dickman (martin+dickman#virgin+net)
I lived in Boston for the first twenty years of my life, I then moved
away some 10 years ago and I now live in Oxford. Although, my first
team is Notts County, I have supported Boston since I was about 5 years
old. I still try and get to see the Pilgrims when I come to see my
parents, who still live in Manor Gdns. Let's see Boston back in the
Conference and beyond! P.S. I miss Batemans Beer!
- Jim Dickson (jim#wyberton20+fsnet+co+uk)
I am 27 years old and have lived in Boston all my life. I have supported
United through good and bad times since 1985 and this year is going to be
the greatest. Promotion to the Conference a certainty.

I'm 14. I've supported Boston since I was very small. I swim for Boston
Swimming Club. I never miss a home match (unless I'm swimming) and try
to get to as many away games as possible.

I've supported Boston most of my life as I was born in Boston. I go with
my mates Stephen Wood, Robert McCusker, Joe Rossington, Troy Golding,
Chris Wainwright and our most dedicated fan Adam Goy. Adam has also been
a mascot for the Pilgims 4 times.
- Brian Donkin (donkinbrian#hotmail+com)
I am a lifelong supporter of Boston United - the pride of Lincolnshire.
My favourite players are Bastock, Elding, Ellender and Daryl Clare.
Steve Evans is a great manager and Boston are definately going up this
- Chris Donkin (donkin+itex#btopenworld+com).
I moved to Boston from Edinburgh in October 1991 and although I am
first and foremost a Hearts supporters I have become hooked on the York
Street experience. I have seen most home games played in the last 12
seasons and my favourite player is the one and only "Baldy" Bastock.
- Peter Dorr (Beardy#talk21+com)
I've been a Pilgrim for 12 years now, usually in the Spayne Road stand
with Tufty, Big John and Paddy Corke (Mr. Bean). I love my sailing
weekends away with Paddy, They're such FUN! Next year we need more legs
on show to boost our challenge. Big up BUFC and Tommy Deamer.
- Craig Dowse (b+dowse#virgin+net)
I live 4 miles away from York Street and go to see almost all home games,
and a few away. I am 14 years old and go to Kirton Middlecott Secondary
School. Here's hoping for a good 1998/99 season!
- Colin Draper (colin#sheffield+telinco+co+uk)
Me (age 47) and my football mad son Sam (age 11) would just like
to say CONGRATULATIONS and hope to catch your games next year at Lincoln,
York, Scunthorpe, Hull and any other grounds within a 2 hour drive from
Sheffield. And of course the odd visit to Boston. Football as it should
be (i.e. a good day out, a laugh, frustration sometimes but no hard
feelings, good mates, people who understand the game) is now found in the
2nd and 3rd and the Conference... and even in the Welsh League!
- Keith Drewitt (drewitt31#london+com)
Hi, I am a great fan of your Team. I have supported Boston for the last
season and this season. I can't get to Boston as much as I like
because I am only 15.

I will be going to as many of Boston's games as I can next season.
I hope that Boston United do well.

Bostonian born and bred. Been supporting the Pilgrims from a very early
age, even going to Wembley once. I'm now in the Army and don't get home
as often as I would like. Last match I saw was the Grantham clincher
last season, what a day !!!!
- Laurent Duval (rageagainsttheinternet#hotmail+com)
Even though I do not live in Boston anyone from Lincolnshire can see
they are the pride of Lincolnshire. So I choose to support the mighty
Pilgrims. I do not get to many games as I live outside the county. EVANS

Born in Boston in 1953. Been supporting the Pilgrims since the Midland
League days. Worked in Saudi Arabia, Southport, California USA, and
currently Doncaster. I have always managed to find Boston United results!
LET'S ALL GET BEHIND THEM IN 2000.
- Paul Edenbrow (liy6ep1#lin3+smf+nottingham+ac+uk)
Hello. I have lived in Boston all my life and now am a student at
Nottingham. My first real memory of the Pilgrims was their superb 3-2
extra-time victory in the semi-final of the FA Trophy, and of course the
final itself. David 'Diddie' Gilbert was the best player I have seen in
the 'famous' Amber and Black, followed closely by Winston Campbell (joke).
You can hear me on URN, 97.5FM in the Nottingham area.
- Lee Edge (top_edge1#hotmail+com)
I don't actually support Boston but I live in London with two Boston
boys. All I hear from the Legendry Tim Allen and the 'Boy' Richard Knight
is stories of a day out at York Street followed by a night out in some of
the country's finest nightspots. What I wouldn't give to pay a visit to
the Town Pump. Good luck to the Pilgrims and I can't wait to make my
Boston 'debut' at York street and the Pump.
- Byron Edwards (byron1989#eddie83+freeserve+co+uk)
I am a 12 year old pupil of the Spalding Grammar School, and I've got
one big problem - everyone takes the mickey cus I'm a Pilgrims fan. But
as many people will agree these are the sad glory hunters who follow the
top divisions instead of the great local teams. My favourite player is
Daryl clare and you can always find me, my dad and my two uncles in
Spayne Road, cus we're Spayne Road til we die!
- June Egan (jgegan#talk21+com)
I am a receptionist at the Port of Boston. I attend all the home matches
I can along with a few away games. I often bring along my grandchildren
to games. I am keeping everything crossed that we go up to the
Conference as we deserve.
- Kate Eglinton (eggwhyte#yahoo+com)
Started supporting the Pilgrims at the start of last season and I now
never miss a home game. Although not entirely happy about Paul Raynor's
addition to the team to begin with, I am now entirely converted. I love
his committment and aggressive style of play.

I was born, brought up, schooled etc in Boston. I currently live in
Shoeburyness. Unfortunately my Saturday afternoons are currently occupied
as I am still fit enough (my wife says daft enough) to be playing Rugby
Union. Match attendances have dropped since I moved from Nottingham, but
I try to get to as many as possible. Regards to anyone out there who
knows or remembers me.... drop me a E-Mail.
- Ian Evison (Ianev#aol+com)
I live in Spilsby, 16 miles down the A16. I was a very keen supporter
during the early 90's but getting a girlfriend (now wife) put an end to
that! Falling from the Conference didn't help matters, neither has the
commitment shown by the Football Club in returning to the promised land.
I still manage a few games a year and to cheer all you guys and gals up
I currently manage BUFC on Championship Manager taking them to 6th
position in the third division last season only to fail in the playoffs.
Half way through this season I am 14th but 12 points from the top 7.
Noel Whelan and Jason Lee are my front men with Mark Kinsella and Stan
Lazaridis in midfield, maybe at York Street proper one day !?

Last season was brilliant for me, it brought back sweet memories from my
youth when we won the NPL on several occasions. I recognise several
names in the supporters list from my days at Boston Grammar School. I
still live in Boston. UP THE PILGRIMS!

I live in Bracknell at the moment but I travel to see my beloved
Pilgrims at every oppertunity. I used to enjoy going with my old pal
Noddy Fishwick, but unfortunatly we drifted apart. Now my favourite day
is relaxing a nice curry house with the fond memories of a Pilgrims home
win. I spend most of my time being the butt of colleagues jokes. I love
chutney on kormas hence my nickname "Chutney". We are planning a trip to
Kingstonian and hope to see you all there. Up the Pilgrims.

I'm from St. Lucia, same as Ken Charlery, and I'm a journalist as well as

- Katy Fixter (katy#kfixter+freeserve+co+uk)
I am 23 and first went to a match at age 3 months (Dad brought me in a
pram to see Boston United Reserves so I don't think I ever had any
choice in the matter of being a Pilgrim). Until going away to Uni I went
to practically every home match (and am probably one of only a few fans
to have been to almost every away match when we were in the Unibond
League, missing only midweek matches). These days at York Street I can
mostly be found down Spayne Road or in the Announcers Box with my dad,
who is the one who has to play that terrible after - goal music!
- Sally Fixter (S+Fixter#uea+ac+uk)
I am currently a student at the University of East Anglia (no I don't
know you Mark Judd!). I have attended nearly every United match since
the age of three, when my Dad took me to a match. I feel I must mention
his name (Mick Fixter), as he is a veritable fountain of useless
information about the Pilgrims dating back to 1955. Sorry Dad!
- Jenny Flint (ntybe062#sonm+nottingham+ac+uk)
I am a student nurse in Boston. I have followed the Pilgrims for over 10
years now and my only wish is to see them back in the Conference. My
fondest memory of United is when they were in the FA Cup and we lost to
Chester City. Although the result did not go our way it was one of the
best team performances I have seen.

Born in Boston, 1971, left 1973 to become a Yorkshireman in Barnsley. Watched BFC
as a fanatical supporter since the age of 7 but rekindled my interest in the
Pilgrims after chatting with Phil Birkett (top bloke) who keeps me
informed of their progress. I'm hoping to get in contact with anyone of
the same age and also re-establish links with Phil Birkett. Good to see
the Pilgrims doing well although I have to admit I am Barnsley through
and through - Football league next season - Oakwell 3 years after that?

I was born in Boston in 1947. I have been an avid Pilgrims supporter as a
result of my late father's unconditional support and regular attendance at
all home games for 40 years. I have relocated many times and currently
living in Ottawa, Canada (3290 miles from York Street). Until recently when I hooked up to the internet,
I had my mother send me all newspaper clippings from the Lincolnshire
Standard and The Target. What a pleasure to find the Pilgrim's home page. I
travel back to Boston once a year to visit my mother and of course to
attend Boston's games. The deciding factor of when I return is often the
fixture list. I have sponsored a match ball for two seasons in my
daughter's name in support of the club. Good Luck to the Pilgrims in

I am messaging you from Maghera, Northern Ireland. I have always followed
the Pilgrims results ever since I had my Uncle George Dawson and Auntie
Kath living there before they both died. My brother has set up his home
there so I go back and forward. I first was in Boston 30 years ago and I
remember going to the swimming pool there passing the ground and just
getting a real thrill seeing it. So good luck again. George would be ever
so proud of Boston getting into the League as he was a referee. He lived
in Saint Peter's Lane beside what was formerly known as Faulkners Bakery.

Entering my last of four years at uni in Greenwich studying sports
science. I have been a Pilgrims' fan for as long as I can remeber. I saw
my first ever footy match at York Street when Boston were battling for a
place in the then fourth division. It has been a pleasure to follow them
over the years but has recently become brilliant with their current
position at the top of the Conference. A fantastic achievment in the
short space of time, re-kinderling memories of old. This time let's get
it right and a get a place in the third. (I'll be able to watch them
easily then if they play Oxford where I have been living for the last

I live two minutes from the ground and attend whenever possible. I am in
favour of Boston moving ground even though I live so close. It would be
good to have a BRAND SPANKING new ground and I also believe Steve Evans
is one of the best managers the country and possibly better than Alex
Ferguson at motivating the team. Well done Steve and keep up the good
work. UP THE PILGRIMS.

for driving a 250 mile round trip to most home games. Mummy supports her
home town team of Napoli in the Italian Serie B, we think that the
Pilgrims would stuff them if they ever met. Thanks to daddy helping us to

had. Over the years some great players come to mind - Malcolm White, John
Lakin, Jimmy Raynor, Jimmy Fell, Bobby Svarc, Bobby Brown, Gerry Stewart,
and GOD himself... John Moyes. Just want to send the present squad all the
best for the coming '02-'03 season.

Saturday, whether I'm at work or not. Up the Pilgrims (hopefully into
the Nationwide League).

Born in Boston in 1963 and currently living in Ryde, Isle of Wight. I
would love to hear from any other Island people who support Boston. My
brother-in-law, Simon Callaby who lives at Swineshead watches them most
home games. Lucky sod! At least I got to watch them on Sky today. Good
Luck in your quest for promotion.
- Paula Griffin (paula.griffin#priory.lincs.sch.uk)
I enjoy watching football and I go to all of the home matches and I enjoy
supporting the Pilgrims. I am 16 years old and I will be starting at
Boston College soon.
- David Griffiths (davidgriffiths#utvinternet+com)
I had the privilege of watching the PILGRIMS from 1973 to 1991, when I
moved to Belfast from Skegness. I still follow the results each week and
ring the club call from time to time. Still love the Pilgrims and follow
the recent success with pride. Fantasic to see them top of the Conference
in early September, hope to still be there in May. Love to hear from any of
the fans I used to know. Now support Glentoran, had
a wonderful European trip to Denmark in August in UEFA cup.
- Kieran Griffiths (timshorts#hotmail+com)
I am ten years old. I once sponsored Steve Stoutt's shorts. My best
moment as a Boston fan was being taken onto the pitch by Paul Bastock
when I was a toddler at Telford. I like QPR, Willem II Tilburg and
Borussia Dortmund, but I like my Boston home shirt best.

Stuck in Sussex. Hampered by children. Tortured by the memory of Peter

Rovers. Threatened during the inspired 4-2 victory with sending off by
the referee at Dagenham & Redbridge.
- Ivan Griggs (igriggs#iee+org+uk)
I was born in Boston, but live in Nottingham. I remember the FA Cup
matches against Derby County, Jim Smith and Howard Wilkinson. I try to
follow BU as much as possible (this does not include attending as many
matches as I want to) by relying on the TV or internet. Keep the Glory
Days rolling - FA cup success next!
- Steve Grist (seiflow#surflink+co+uk)
I don't know about being the furthest away from the York Street ground
but we think that we may be the nearest, living just round the corner in
Manor Gardens in clear view of the floodlights and within reach of a
Paul Bastock goal kick. I started supporting at the age of 9 just after
the 1966 World Cup, having the privilege of supporting The Pilgrims
through the glory years of Jim Smith and Howard Wilkinson and the
disappointment of non election to the league in the late 70s. Now 30
years later I can't decide whether it's just insanity that keeps me
going week after week or the fact that I can keep an eye on my bathroom
window from the Spayne Road terracing. In recent seasons my son Matthew
now aged 11 has become a keen United supporter acting as mascot on two
occasions and has helped to keep his father's language in check in these
most trying of times in the Unibond Premier League. Surely we will soon
return to our rightful place in the top flight of non-league football.

one of the largest commercial real estate companies in the US. Until
recently I lived in Lincoln and regularly supported the
Pilgrims as that was my home town. The highlight being the FA Trophy
final appearance in 1985. Just like another fan on this page, I've also
got my American wife interested in the Pilgrims, she even has a BUFC

Born in Hoyland nr. Sheffield in 1964. I've been a Wednesdayite for 30
years this season, but this season has been the final straw as far as
being ripped off watching Premiership football is concerned. My first
match at York St. was 18/9/99 FA. cup match against Oldbury. I enjoyed
my day so much, it was just like football used to be, good freindly
atmosphere and lovely pie and peas. I'm born again into non-league
football, I only hope after seeing so many second half chances go
begging I've not swappped one frustration for another. Up the Pilgrims.
- John Hale (john.thebastard#virgin+net)
I was born and raised in Rotherham, and, for my sins, the "Millers" remain
closest to my heart. However, after much provocation and threats of
violence from Chris Donkin (also listed in these pages), I went to
see the "Pilgrims" a few seasons ago, and they have taken a prominent
place in my affections. I believe the Pilgrims belong in the Conference,
and look forward to celebrating their promotion with Chris Donkin, Kevin
Riches, Nick Harwood, Barry Peck, Jim Morrison, Kevin Oliver and Keith
Harrison very soon.

I remember watching him have some great games for WBA. Boston gaining
promotion would be a dream come true :-)

I have been a supporter since the late '80s, and I come from Woodhall

I have been a Pilgrims fan all my life. I work away and am unable to get
to matches. My dad and stepmum went to most of last season's home games.
I hold the United board and chairman in high regard because when I was
serving in the Gulf most of the lads wrote off to their teams and
received photocopied pictures and maybe a badge. Pat Malky and John
Blackwell sent me over lots of stuff, a home shirt plus programmes from
every game up until I returned home. That's what I call a team and
that's why we have great support.

I have lived in Boston since 1975 and supported the team as often as work

games at York Street and I intend to be there, all the best.

during the season. I am pleased to hear there are some new directors,
maybe they will be joined by new strikers (let's hope so !) Favourite
game: semi-final of the FA trophy v Altrincham home and away. Favourite
players over the last few years are Phil Brown, Steve Appleby (for his
huge effort) and going back quite a few years Dave Adamson and Steve
Thompson. Favourite players are currently Steve Charles, Steve Appleby
and Joby Gowshall and Baza! I would be interested in hearing from other

in the Conference again.

Enjoyed the company and the night life especially "Bentleys". Made plenty
of pals and made guest appearances for the college staff football team.
Visited York street of course and now there is a fan base in Glasgow. My
mates and myself watched with delight the promotion of Boston and are now
looking forward to a few trips to the north of England especially
Carlisle to follow the "Pilgrims". So look out at the northern matches
next season for your own Glasgow supporters branch. Good luck next season!

I used to support Forest when they were in the Premier, but then they

back to the Third, and I saw that Boston were winning, so daddy got me a
ticket for the last game. I love that Jonny Gowshall. Boston til I die!
Up the pilchards!

Boston manager called Smith being very good a few years ago!

A Pilgrims' fan ever since my dad carried me in at 2 years old - which
makes nearly 40 years an avid supporter. Don't get to enough home games
(7 or 8 per season) since I moved to Croydon 6 years ago. But do get to
most away matches in the south. Favourite all time players, Bobby Svarc,
Gary Jones, John McKenna. Any lost friends, esp from Newcastle Uni,
please contact me. Anyone in the London area want to arrange travel to
games? - please get in touch.

I am 14 at the moment. Been a Boston supporter all my life. Hope to get

Well officially I am a Bolton fan, I live in Merseyside. I started off by
doing my GCSE Information Technology coursework on Boston United, and at
the time it was the beginning of the season and promotion wasn't expected.
As the season got on, I grew to get more and more interested, and now I
own a home and away shirt which I purchased when down in Lincolnshire and
next season I am looking forward to coming down to see matches when Bolton
are not playing. All the best for next season, maybe you want to loan David
Norris off us for the year?

I moved from Boston in 1986 after a short spell in Lincoln moved to just
outside Leicester where I remain. "The Sporting Capital of the East
Midlands". I too remember watching the infamous lump of mud at the
Baseball Ground stopping a momentous victory. I also remember the day
off school at BGS watching the replay (6-1). If Joe Kent reads this
email me, Steve Goodacre now lives just outside Newcastle, I have his
address. Since leaving Boston I must admit I am a Rugby convert having
Leicester Tigers on your doorstep is a bit of a must! I have seen United
a few times and I still get a regular blow by blow account from my Dad
who still goes regularly. Best of luck in the Conference, at the time of
writing this 10th Sepember 2000 you are the strongest team! Unfortunately
for the wrong reasons.

Derby replay - what a disappointment after the Baseball Ground game. I
still have the Standard reports on the Tottenham game! Football here

this is mainly when they play in the South (some memorable games at

far away from London, Boston Utd became my local team. I began watching
Boston when George Kerr was in charge (those were the days). My claim to

Lapsed United fan from the early 70s when the NPL was dominated by the
Pilgrims. Born again in the rain at Hayes when the club achieved a
memorable and long overdue promotion to the Football League. What a
fantastic set of fans both home and away especially for a smallish market
town such as Boston. Would be good to top 5000 attendance on a regular
basis at York Street. Let's get more fans in with some clever and
innovative marketing please! Highlight to 02/03 season: several spring to
mind but last minute winner at home to Scunthorpe was very enjoyable as
was away win at Cambridge. Goosebump moment: hanging on to 3-3 draw to
Wrexham (without doubt the best side in the 3rd division); and Bazza
blatantly (?) handling the ball outside the area. Goal of the season: Neil
Redfearn's 25 yard free kick at Leyton Orient. Four points head start this
season. Let's get stuck in chaps!

Okay...a certain young man not far from York St has a lot to answer for!
Went to my first match about a decade ago with Dad as a challenge! Hated
it (but lasted the match) and vowed not to go again. Now I'm courting a
young man... and he's into the Pilgrims like a mouse is into cheese, so
when I have the dosh I catch the train from Cambridge and come up! The
atmosphere is great and I went to a few of the games at the end of last
season. Currently I'm trying to crochet myself a scarf for next season...
but then I'm trying to lots of things so it maybe the year 3000 before
this scarf is actually finished! That's all folks! (PS. Don't come to
Cambridge in the Summer - it's chocca with tourists! Best bet is either
March or Sept! and the best SKIPS are in GYWDIR ST/ST BARNABAS RD for
those of you that like something for nothing!)

Hertfordshire I fell in love with the Pilgrims in 1993 when I came to
Boston to do my nurse training. First game was a qualifying round of
the FA Cup, 2-1 up and Bazza got sent off, we went on to lose 3-2
against Canvey Island. I live in Suffolk now, soon in the States, but
I'll always think of you lads. STEVE EVANS' BARMY ARMY RULE!

Born in Boston in '69, moved away early in life but came back in my
teens. I try to get to as many games as possible when I come back home.
It's great to see a site for the PILGRIMS !!!!
- Stephen Kirk-Smith (stevotheox#hotmail+com)
Have lived in Boston all my life and have supported the Pilgrims through
thick and thin. From the FA Trophy in 85 to the present day. I am
currently doing medicine in London with ambitions to help on that side
in the future at the club. Bring on the full-time team!!
- Ivar Klausen (ivar+klausen#rb+no)
I'm a Norwegian journalist. With two friends of mine I went on an English
football crusade three years ago. We also spent a night in Boston. A nice
town - and as such it deserves a good football team. From Norway we'll be
cheering Boston United into the pro-league this spring. Go!
- Geoff Knight (geoff#knighttwitcher+fsnet+co+uk)
I have been watching the Pilgrims since I was 7 years old therefore I am
in my 26th year of support. I go to some away matches and think when
things go right we do have the best FANS, but when we under perform it's
not so good and the fickle fans start staying away. My favourite players
are Peter Costello for his 100% commitment and Ross Weatherstone -
another who gives his all.
- Richard Knight (richardalanknight#hotmail+com)
Boston lad since moved to work in South London. Only get to home games
when I'm back to see the folks but get down to most of the Southern away
games, Woking, Farnboro, Stevenage etc. Favourite moment at a match,
Ward scoring against Barnet in the 3-3 FAT tie in the last minute in 87
and the 4-1 stuffing of Grantham to win the DML.

Ex-Bostonian, Giles old-school boy in Old Leake, Boston College. Last
seen as a regular at York Street in 83/4.

I can but apologize as I am a converted Altrincham fan. Up the Pilgrims!

I am 15 and a devoted supporter of the greatest team.
- Richard Leachman (RichardLeachman#compuserve+com)
Born in Kirton, I attended Kirton Primary, Boston Grammar School and the
College. I can't remember when I first went to York Street, but I must
have been to most home games between the late 60's and early 80's, when
I first moved away. I now live down south, converting people to BUFC on
the way, but have managed to buy a place in Long Sutton now, and get
'home' when I can. However, it's not always easy to get weekends off
when you're a Baptist minister. I guess that makes me a real Pilgrim!

I have supported the Pilgrims for many years.
- David Lee Chi Kin (cklee16#yahoo+com+hk)
I am known as XXL16. The reason I have this nickname is because my shirt
size is XXL and 16 is my lucky number. I was born in Hong Kong and I
weigh 250lbs (17st 12lb), but I have played amateur football as a
defender, especially as a sweeper. I am one of the newest Boston United
fans and my favorite player, I also sponsor his kit, is Daryl Sutch. I
respect his 16 years loyalty to his former club Norwich City and also his
verstaility - he is one of the few players in the world who has played
from goalkeeper to striker (not in the reserve but first team matches)! I
will visit York Street on the coming October, see you guys soon!
- Daniel Leece (dml1ugs#mail+bolton+ac+uk)
I come from Horwich (113 miles from York Street), which is near Bolton
where the new Reebok stadium is being built. There are several of my
friends over here who are followers of the Pilgrims. I have only managed
to get to York Street once but I was very impressed, the pot noodles were
superb. I also think that the chippy called Eagles is the best on the
planet. I have also seen Boston play away at Victory Park (Chorley). The
away support was very impressive. Hopefully I will be able to make it over
- Dave Lenton (aquariusdiscotheques#hotmail+com)
I started supporting the Pilgrims from the 66/67 season whilst I was at
BGS (1962-68). I remember such famous names at Jimmy Rayner, Peter
Thompson & Jimmy Fell etc. Remember the FA Cup game at home to
Orient, and the famous Derby game at the Baseball ground, and also
Wembley in '85. Now only an occasional visitor to York St, as I work for
British Airways near Heathrow. I used to go visit regularly during my
school days with Graham Wright.
- Jon Lever (Jonathan+Lever#Virgin+net)
I am 17 at the start of March and live in a small town called Heywood in
Lancashire. I support Burnley FC and Sittingbourne (Don't ask me why). I
also follow the fortunes of the Pilgrims. Living so far away, I can't
see them a lot except Radcliffe away. So this site is the only way I can
get any info, CHEERS!

- Howard Lincoln (Howard_Lincoln#ncet+org+uk)
I taught at Boston College from 92-95 and followed the Pilgrims avidly during
that time. A Saturday was not complete without the "York Street Experience" which
for me consisted of an early start in the social club to discuss the prospects
for the day and football in general. The Match, essential of course, and finally
a return to the social club for a post-mortem and Final Score. Wonderful.
I still follow the results and agonise over the league tables but
don't see as many matches as I would like though the cup-tie at Bedworth
did give me a "home match" this season - I now live in Coventry (73 miles from York Street).
My favourite player at York Street was Neil Grayson - a wholehearted
player who must have played in just about every position during his time
at York St including (tragically as it turned out) in goal. He
won player of the year in 94. My other team is Chesterfield FC
who have of course shared many players with the Pilgrims in the past
(Albert Phelan, Andy Kowalski, Ernie Moss, David Moss and Greg Fee who was at Saltergate
on loan for a while).

I am a student at Bournemouth University.
- Amanda Lord (amanda.lord#ntlworld+com)
I have been supporting the Pilgrims from afar for two years. Living in
Leicester and working part time I have had not yet had a chance to visit
the ground. Whenever Boston play our local teams like Nuneaton away, I
seem to be working. My husband bought me a replica shirt for Christmas so
all being well I'll be able to wear it to a third division match next
season. Good luck in the future.
- Freddy 'Lumpy' Loughner (croftdave#hotmail+com)
I played one game for Boston Utd reserves in 1976 and have been a
die-hard follower ever since. I'm currently touring the world on a
cruise ship performing magic tricks for the punters, but if I make it
back for next season will be following the Pilgrims all the way through
the Conference and to the Football League. C'mon lads!
- Alan Louth (Jake#jlouth+freeserve+com.uk)
I watch all of the Pilgrims' home games and when I can make it I go to
the away games. I think that we'll have a great chance of promotion next
season with Steve Evans in charge.
- Jake Louth (lilo#richmond1732+freeserve+co+uk)
I've supported Boston since the season they were relegated and I follow
them home and away. Steve Evans is GOD. I hate Grantham, Gainsborough and
all the other Lincolnshire teams.
- Sam Louth (Jake#jlouth+freeserve+com.uk)
I'm a ballboy at Boston United and have been for the last three or four
years, and now we have good manager, who is under contract I can see
this club getting back where we belong, in the Conference.

Boston this season.

I moved to Boston 10 years ago to work at Pilgrim Hospital. I used to be
an avid Norwich City supporter, well they did need help and still do. My
other team was Club Bruges in Belgium, I used to go every other week.
I have only started supporting the Pilgrims this season, they are one of
the best sides I have seen that are not in one of the main football
leagues. Steve Evans has done a great job in such a short time, he and
the team deserve to get higher within the next few seasons. Division
three here we come. Keep up the good work all you Pilgrim fans the club

much as I do. I am currently at uni in Stoke and spreading the Pilgrims
fanbase with my housemates.

I have always had a keen interest in Boston United as my Grandad use
to referee there, a Mr Victor Stott. All my family have connections with
the club and my Uncle David still attends many games. Boston United will
always be a very special club to our family and I still look for the
results every week because we don't get commentary up here in Leeds!!

I live in Boston and am a fanatic of the team. My brother Glen used to
play for the club and my dad's stepson Chris Cook is the club's all time
top goal scorer. I never miss a match and look forward to Division 3
football at York st next season.

I was born in Boston - my family moved away to Manchester (another "Red")
when I was young, however, I spent many a happy summer at my Grandmother's
house on Tollfield Road. At the time in the the 50's it was surrounded by
fields. I now live in Beamsville (3533 miles from York Street), Ontario,
Canada (28 years) and have only been to about two Boston games but have
always remained a Bostonian at heart. Now thanks to the internet, I can
follow the team if only from a distance.

- John Markham (a1a24198#bc+sympatico+ca)
I left Boston in 1968, arriving in Ontario, Canada then moving to British
Columbia in 1979. I've always followed the fortunes of United (good or
bad). The first years were a little difficult as I had to rely on any
newspapers I could get hold of, or by talking long distance with my dad.
But now with modern technology I can keep up to date with all the action.
All the best in the up coming season, which ever league the team is in.
Truly sorry to see the result at the Barrow game. I'll be coming to
Boston this September, so hoping to get to a game.

Third Division. Up the Nortoft.
- Michael Marshall (marshallshouse3#netscapeonline+co+uk)
The Marshalls are back to York Street; father and son (2 years old).
Finally it seems United are starting to rise again after some poor years,
which saw my family leave the terrace in total bewilderment of not only
the team but also the directors, who in my opinion have led United to
such a slump. But what a breath of fresh air Evans has made. Someone who
wants the club to do well again which has resulted in fans like myself
returning to York Street. My only hope now is this may carry on and put
United back where they belong, hopefully persuading my dad to return to
York Street who is reluctant even now after some 30 years of support.
NOW OR NEVER Evans blow the cobwebs away from York Steet!!!.
- Phil Marshall (faboriginal#www+com)
Howdy from Down Under. Kept an eye on your progress last year in the
Conference and was on the edge of my seat waiting to find out if we would
be banned from the Nationwide League. Glad to hear we've made it too the
BIG TIME and I'm now jumping on the Band Wagon!!! The only (??) Tasmanian
supporter of the Pilgrims.
- Gavin Maskell (G.J.Maskell#herts+ac+uk)
I have been attending Boston United games since the age of 5. When I
first started watching I did so for sheer enjoyment. Now as I have got
older I have become gripped by the sheer support that the team receives
and will always give my full support to the lads through thick and thin.
One of my greatest wishes is to see Boston United as a League team and
with Steve Evans at the helm this may happen sooner rather than later.
Good luck lads!
- Richard Mason (masman_98#yahoo+com)

I live ten minutes from the ground. I started watching Boston the season
they came down from the Conference. My first game was the 6-1 mauling of

in this time. I really hope we go up this year as I have never seen
Boston the Conference!

a game one day and I've never looked back. We go to all home games and
most away fixtures, leaving my poor boyfriend as a Football widower. Am

the fuss is about? I am trying to convert him though!
- Keith May (keif#may062+fsnet+co+uk)
I went to lots of the home matches during the mid-eighties and the FA
Trophy final. I got called back from the wilderness when my Dad and

season! Now I try to get to see the Pilgrims home and away whenever I
can. Division 3 soon???

always win when I go - and now I'm a fan too! My favourite player is
Bazza because of his fearsome kicks and his diving ability.

I have been supporting the Pilgims for over 10 years. The Conference
away-days in the late-eighties and early-nineties were brilliant,
especially travelling to places like Sutton United and Slough Town in
Andy Robinson's old Vauxhall Chevette.T he mid-nineties apperared to be
a downfall and I therefore only remained visting York Street but still
went to every home game. Since Star-Steve Evans and Quow's arrival the
club is definetly on the up as well as attendances. Let's hope the team
goes full-time next season and gets into the Nationwide League Division
Three within the next five years. All the best to United and you loyal

I have supported the Pilgrims since I was about 10, going to only five
or six games a season though. I started to go a lot more regularly when
I was 14. I now have a season ticket and try to get to as many away
games as possible. My favourite players at the minute are Ken Charlery,
Colin Hoyle and Bazza.
- Dave Parnell (dparnell#hotmail+com)
I have been a BIG supporter since the first game I went too, that was
`79 against Altrincham, and as a young lad I wanted to see Alex Stepney,
but I found myself hooked, I didn't miss a home game for 5 years. Then I
had to take a job, and this affected the amount of games I could see due
to living away. Then 4 years ago I moved back to the area, and that was
it, my Saturdays have never been the same since. I also travel to over 60%
of away games. I think we are embarking on exciting period for the club,
and it is everyone's responsibilty as a supporter to talk the club up.

I work on the land around Lincolnshire. I am a massive Boston fan, but
haven't been to many games at York Street. I prefer to watch the match
on teletext. I think we should take the advantage of the collapse at
Aston Villa and sign Southgate, Joachim, Hendrie and Ehiogu. Evans is a
much better manager than Gregory. Roy, that is.

I've been a Pilgrim all my life but since leaving Boston in 1992 I don't
get to as many games as I'd like. The WEB site is a top innovation. I
now run my own business in London and regularly make the Pilgrimage to
York Street and a few away games. Steve Evans is the man for the job and
I'm sure great things will follow from his leadership.
- Ian Pilbeam (Ian+Pilbeam#ed+ac+uk)
My first game was Boxing Day 1977: we slaughtered Worksop (I think) 4-0
in the good old days of Neil Callery and Jim Kabia. Best match... has
to be the semi-final against Altrincham: Bob Lee's looping header is
frozen in time. Worst memory... second leg of the semi against Mossley in
1980. My own personal highlight was being inaugrual
Chairman of the BGSBUFCSC (Boston Grammar School BUFC Supporters Club),
and presenting our Player of the Year Trophy to Bob Lee before a match.
We never got it back!! I now live in Edinburgh so it's difficult to get
to matches, although I was able to come back for the Grantham home game
to witness the culmination of the Evans Revival. It brought back happy
memories of 1985. Good luck in the Conference Pilgrims.
- Andrew Pilkington (pilky89#hotmail+com)
I've been supporting the Pilgrims for the best part of 10 years now and
am the co-founder of the Horwich & Westhoughton Supporters branch

makes him the best of the bunch!

Grew up in Boston, and was a regular supporter through the 'glory days'
of the 70's, walking to York Street with Dad most Saturdays from
Wyberton. Best memory - mid-70's school's out and the town stopping for
the FA Cup replay against Derby (lost 1-6!). Worst memory - any wet walk
back home of a Saturday! All time hero - John Froggatt. Now living and
working in Lancashire, get to away matches whenever I can - Unibond had
a few local away matches, Doc Martens was rubbish, but now the
Conference gives me 5 to go at. Best time recently - Ken Charlery
scoring his debut goal after 4 mins at Northwich during our first (and
only so far) away win this season. Mum, Dad and brother Tom also keen
fans (check sponsor of Chris Cook in past years). Any other 'class of
'78' BGS out there?

I first saw the Pilgrims in 1972 with my future husband John (who had
previously played for FC!), but moved to Northampton when we married. We
moved back to Boston in 1980 and John took the kids "out of the way" to
the football over the years. Feeling left out I asked if I could go as
well, and the bug bit. HARD. We are now all season ticket holders and go
on the BUSA buses to away matches. Favourite player is "COSSIE".

screaming with happiness even if we are losing.

championship winning season, but I followed very closely giving the
Dagenham & Redbridge followers loads of banter on the way.
- Ivan Rich (ic_rich#hotmail+com)
As I am from Plymouth, I support the REAL Pilgrims in Green, the mighty
Argyle. However I extend my whole support to Boston for making it to the
League at last. Division Three teams are not much better than the top
half of the Conference outfits so I'm sure you'll do OK next year. I'm
just glad the two Pilgrims teams don't have to play each other. There
would be so much rubbish written about the history of the Pilgrim
Fathers etc.(yawn). Good luck for next season.

Me and my son have been following Boston for the past 5 years after our
move to Skegness. I am a Sheffield United fan and my son supports
Chelsea but we both follow Boston as our second club because we are
unable to get to our other clubs matches. What Boston fans need to do is
get friends who support the big clubs but are unable to get to games to
get to York Street on match days and swell the crowds ready for
(hopefully) the new challenge that awaits next season. Local people get
behind your local team (even if your first love is Manchester United).

I lived at Frampton and went to Kirton Secondary modern. I worked at
Calders sawmill for a year until joining the navy in 1958. I supported
Boston throughout my teenage years and remember well the 6-1 win over
Derby. One of our teachers at Kirton was a Derby supporter - he got
quite a bit of stick on the Monday! On leaving the Navy I joined GCHQ
at Cheltenham where I worked for 27 years. I followed Boston through
all that time, whilst regularly going to watch Cheltenham town. I have
to admit to being a season ticket holder at Cheltenham. I have seen
Boston a few times during the 80's when we were both in the Gola or
whatever it was called. On one visit to York street my colleague (a
Cheltenham supporter) called the ground a "little old-trafford" and
couldn't get over the facilities at Boston. Best of luck in the
conference and hope you will be joining Cheltenham in the 3rd next year

not a problem but petrol can be on those long away trips (to
Carlisle... fingers crossed).

I live in Mallorca, but still support Boston Utd. Sibsey is my home

at least two up, two down between the League and the Conference to make
it more like the Premiership. My friends are avid supporters of various
Premiership sides, but I love to hear of Boston doing well. The local
Spanish pub even buys English papers for me so I can see what is
happening in the Conference.

Hi! Well done Pilgrims -I'm proud of you. I'm in Oklahoma, USA so my dad
has been keeping me up to date with how you've been doing. I'm a Boston
girl though (well, Swineshead born and bred!). I love it over here but I
do miss a few things: -Football- they don't have a clue about the game!
Also I miss Fish & Chips and Walkers crisps. Apart from that the USA
is great and so are the Cowboys! I have loved football since I was in
Primary school. It is so good to see a local footy team do really well. I
have been to quite a few of the games over the last several years. Good
luck for next season. P.S. Hello to anyone who knows me -this is where I
have disappeared to!

Pilgrims fan for many years from up in Scotland. Delighted to see the
boys in the Football League!
- Chris Smith (maia#netlineuk+net)
I emigrated to the flatlands in 1979, from Sheffield, and stayed,
working locally. It seems perverse not to support your local football
team (and nowhere near as contemptible as the millions of 'so-called'
Man Utd fans who never go and watch them or who don't actually know how to
find Old Trafford). I'm also a member of the Boston Utd Social Club quiz
team with Andy Stone et. al. (There should be seven of us on this site
somewhere - and always in the ground on match days!)

Boston against Grantham Town. I normally go to the games with Phillip

Born in 1984, I've been supporting the Pilgrims since I was taken to York

Altrincham this year. I also enjoyed the cup match at Chester a couple of
years ago. "Come on you pilgrims"

I was born and lived in Boston until about 1980. I went to BGS and then
Salford University. I now live in Verwood in Dorset with my family (son
is James (see above) - named after guess who!!), and work for Compaq. I started
watching the Pilgrims in the old West Midland league days and have
watched them as often as I can since. I remember the glory days of the
NPL as if they were only yesterday. It's great that we're in the DM
league now, as I can get to plenty of away games. Come on you Pilgrims!!!

and fish with Wainfleet and New Leake.
- Neil Smith (neil-carla#carla-neil+fsnet+co+uk)
I used to live 12 miles from Boston in a little place called New
Leake. While I lived there I never went to see a game at York Street.
But since I moved to Derby I have followed Boston as my home team (my
second team is Man. Utd) I like to go when I come home visiting. The
first game I went to see was against Ilkeston Town in the F.A. Cup.
It was interesting running through the streets with over enthusiastic
Ilkeston fans on your tail....!
- Roger Smith (dipsrs#ibm+net)
I was born in Boston 31 years ago and lived my childhood days in York St
- about 50 yards from the turnstiles. Does this make me the closest
(unless anyone lives in the Social Club)? I now live and work in Bewdley,
(104 miles from York Street) which is near Kidderminster but I have vowed
only to go there again when Utd return. Having found this site it should
prove a lot easier to follow results and events. Am I the only person here
to wish a return to the glory days of the 60s, 70s and 80s? Favourite
players of all time must be John Froggatt and Billy Howells. Does anyone
else know that Andy Malkinson is the worst dart player of all time - he
just can't play the game!
- David "Bill" Smithbone (david#smithbone+freeserve+co+uk)
I left Boston for Norwich as United were heading for relegation, I'm now
leaving for Ipswich as promotion beckons. Should I have left earlier?
Does anyone else remember seeing Stan Collymore play at York St. for
Stafford? Or did I dream it?
- Phil Sneath (phil#sneath+freeserve+co+uk)
I have followed the Pilgrims since I was 5 years old. I am now 22.
It's good to see some success at last. When at University in Leeds, I
used to make a 200 mile round trip to watch almost every home game.

My wife Jean and I are big fans of the PILGRIMS. We try to get to as
many matches as we can, both Home and Away when we are back from Saudi
Arabia on holiday. We keep in touch with the club by telephoning the
press box for the half-time and full time scores. When we play away we
telephone the away club to see how the PILGRIM'S are getting on. Winning
- Chris Snow (chris_snow#bigfoot+com)
I started following the Pilgrims when I met my girlfriend Emma (now my
wife), in Sleaford. Originally from Wolverhampton, the Wolves are my
first love. I used to regard Boston as my third team behind
Kidderminster, but the Pilgrims have overtaken the Harriers in my
affections. Hopefully both sides will get promotion this season. I get to
York St as oftern as is practical, living as I now do in Oxfordshire and
working in Brussels every other week. If I ever come by enough money I'd
love to be involved with United in some way.

The first match I saw was way back in the sixties. It was the FA Cup
match against Orient. The score was 1-1, and since that day I have
been hooked. I feel lucky to have seen the best non-league team in the
country. We have been cheated out of going into the League on two
occasions. The first time was when we beat Wimbledon in the non-league
"Champions of Champions" to see who would be put forward for the League.
We both put forward the rest is history. The same happened with Wigan we
won the Northern Premier League they came second, we put forward so did
Wigan - that also is history. Let's hope this is third time lucky!

As a supporter of Boston for 9 years it is great to see them back in the
Conference. I go to every home game and travel to as many away games as
I can. Let's hope we have have an even better season in the Conference
this season now we are full-time and let's hope we have a good FA Cup run
this season - hopefully get drawn against Lincoln City in the early rounds
and Man Utd in round three. Good luck Steve Evans in the coming season.

I am 28, I live in York but I am originally from Skegness. I have
followed Boston United since I was young going to many matches with my

semi-final win over Altrincham. I have travelled as far as Worcester to
watch Utd (last season) and my biggest heartbreak of course has to be
the Wembley final.

them at Wembley.

I am 14 years old and live about 2 miles from York Street. The ground's
got a great atmosphere every home game and it's always funny to see
Steve Evans throw his water bottle at the ref. Keep it up Steve, and the
team and maybe one day we'll be in the third division.

Have supported Boston since the 50's (Derby County and Spurs in the famous
cup run, Midland League games against the likes of Nottingham Forest,
Notts County, Rotherham, Scunthorpe - reserves of course, local derbies
versus the Posh). I played for the United Team in the Boston League as a
kid before leaving Boston in the 60's - Tommy Lowder was the Manager,
Ken Oxford - former goalkeeper managed the Sunday League team. I now live
in London and saw the away match against Kingstonian this season. What
happened to the real stars - Dusty Miller, Eric Lister, Johnny Birbeck,
Andy Graver, Johnny Garvie, Ray Middleton, Geoff Snade, the Hazledine
brothers? Keep the faith and see you in the Conference next season!

Conference grounds in the South.

I'm 17 and live in Glasgow, Scotland. I am a youth team player with
Clydebank F.C. I first found out about the Pilgrims from my girlfriend's
cousin who is a lecterer of sports science at Boston College and
lectures some of the Academy boys at the College. He has been spreading
the gospel about Boston United to me and has been trying to convince me
to come and play for them. I now always check the scores on a Saturday
and I'm frequently on the website and hope to make it to a few games
this year. I am very impressed with the Academy system in place at the
club as it means players in a similar situation to me have something to
fall back on if they do not make it as a footballer.

My name is Chris Stott, another one of the Stott Clan from Boston. I
now reside in Cardiff, after moving from Boston via Spalding, Stockwell,
South Norwood and Reading. I'm the baby of the family (although I'm 44)
and went along to see the Pilgrims with by brothers, Howard and David,
and for a period of time was even a ballboy under the management of Jim
Smith. One vivid memory was our 6-1 defeat by Derby in the FA CUP (we
was robbed in the first match due to a
sloping goal mouth!) and had the
distinction of running onto the pitch and placing the ball on the
penalty spot when were awarded a penalty (10 seconds of fame on the
telly). Although I'm an avid Baggies fan, I have seen the Pilgrims
occasionally whilst on my travels and still check the results every
week and was impressed with last year's performance. I was disappointed
that I was unable to see the Pilgrims on their visits to Wales. Best
of luck for the new season you never know!
- David Stott (DavidAStott#aol+com)
I was born in Boston (1952 - what a giveaway) and have been supporting
the Pilgrims since 1966 (West Midlands League Champions days - Don
Donovan, Billy Howells etc - followed them right through to the Jim
Smith and Howard Wilkinson era until work took me away). Watched them
home and away during my late teens (thrown out of many a ground - both
officially and unofficially). I now live in Scotland (Dollar which is
near Stirling). I currently work in Newcastle (so only get home at
weekends) but ALWAYS ensure any trips home (saw the boys 3 times at
home last season) are when the Pilgrims are at home - currently planning
a trip for the first home Conference game. Still know a few of the
regulars who drink in The Ship before the games (Tony and crew). Good
to see your web page - it is lifeline to someone like me.
- Gareth Stott (gds#psychology+nottingham+ac+uk)
I was born in Boston (1974) and have been a massive fan of the Pilgrims
since my father started me off when I was a child. My grandfather
(Victor Stott) has been a ref at the ground and my father (David Stott)
has been kicked out of the ground. I started coming back to Boston (as
I live in Nottingham) to watch the games with my dad on a whim and just
became addicted to them. I now intend for it to be a regular thing for
myself and my girlfriend as she also likes coming to the games even
though she was born in Bristol. A big round of applause for the web
site as it keeps me in touch of what's happening.
- Howard Victor Jackson Stott (H.V.J.S#btinternet+com)
Another Stott born and bred in Boston but now living in Pinchbeck. Always
followed Boston as a youth with little brother David and even littler
brother Christopher. Being the son of Vic Stott it was inevitable that
football was an interest and not only followed Boston but played locally
for teams like Railway, Kirton colts and One # Ten. It's great to see
Boston keeping up with the times with a great web page, I promise to
visit York Street again soon.
- Alf Swain (swainliverpool#aol+com)
As an Everton / Celtic fan from Liverpool, I came across the Pilgrims
whilst researching my family tree in Boston. My great grandfather came
from Fishtoft, where I met long suffering and much travelled Boston fan
Greg Swain, who will be known to many of your readers. If any of you do
indeed know him please pass on my regards. Working in Leicester, I have
managed to attend a few games, most recently the thrilling (!) Lincs Cup
semi-final win at Grantham. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to
my next visit to York St.

- David Thomas (david#boston19+fsnet+co+uk)
I have fond memories of being a United fan as far back as 1963. Some of
the best games I can remember were in the days of Jim Smith and players
like Billy Howells, John Lakin and Jimmy Fell. Like many other United
fans my most memorable game was Altrincham in 1985 and
subsequently Wembley. I have very fond memories of
a real gentleman of that time, the late Arthur Mann. He was a great player and
manager as well as being a very nice person. Let's hope our current super
manager and his terrific team can achieve something most United supporters can
only have dreamed about; Football League status.

in the corner of the ground that they scored from in the closing
minutes. It felt fantastic. Dunno why I didn't go to the final! I

I'm only a new born baby, and daddy hasn't taken me to any games yet, but
I'm told that the Pilgrims are the greatest side in the DML, and my
daddy would never lie to me.

I lived in Boston all of my life until the middle of 97 when I moved to
Nottingham, and sorry folks, but I'm really pleased I did! My only regret
is not watching "The Lads" play. I know it's laziness, but I haven't even
been this season at all. I got fed up with all the anticipation each season,
only for all hope to vanish in the latter stages ...... please tell me it
won't this year! Tell you what though ... you get better Bateman's in
Nottingham than you do in Boston!

I live in Butterwick just outside Boston and have done all my life!
United fan (that's Boston and Sheffield!) with many good memories and
hoping to have a few more now we are in the 92. Oh trips to Scunthorpe
and Southend - what glamour this Third Division is, so let's get behind
Thommo and the lads. (www.pilgrimpages.f9.co.uk)

Started supporting the Pilgrims (before they were known as that) in the
mid 50s. Moved away from Boston in 1962 but still attended as many
matches as possible - was even a season ticket holder though living in
Wolverhampton. (Travelled over 16000 miles in one season.) Still get to
see most matches, as parents returned to Boston. Collect Boston United
programmes - have 2400 but always looking for more. Would be interested
to hear from other collectors to try and establish a data-base of what
programmes have been issued.

I have been a Boston United fanatic for nearly all of my 15 years (as at
09/03/2002. I couldn't get to Wembley in '85 -- I wasn't born then.
Everybody say aahh, because I was one of those people that travelled to
Dagenham on that very bad Monday night. I am typing this after Daryl
Clare's magnificent 4-goal haul against Dover. WHAT A PLAYER!
- Colin Walker (colin-ols.walker#dfee.gov.uk)
I have followed the plight of Boston United for about 10 years now but
never been to see them apart from a copuple of away games at Frickley
and other places. But I am sure that now I have got travel arrangements
sorted I will be making my first of many trips in the early season.

I have been a Boston United supporter for 30# years hopefully this will
be our year.
- George Wallis (Wallis+House#tesco+net)
I am the biggest fan of BUFC Boston has ever seen. Not the best of
seasons so far but still along way to go. Division 3 is surely in sight
and with David Norris back on loan we should be looking for a top six
finish this year. Shame to see Mark Rawle leave but he'll play for
England one day. Up the SAT1s, BUFC, Nosher and Stevie.

Steffen Cook paid me five grand to add my name to this list. And I'm
still waiting for the ca$h. I guess he must be your biggest supporter
(at 26 stone, he definitely IS). I am in Pompey but like to support the
underdog occasionally. Up the Pilgrims!

I am first and foremost a Barnsley fan, but since coming to work in the
area I've been introduced to Boston United. My thanks to the many friends
who have made me welcome at the games. You may see me in the town driving

of the season. The Barnsley Pilgrim.

that is going on in the U.K. I see there is another supporter in

to go as it is my turn to throw another prawn on the barbie! All the
best to you and your supporters and feel free to email anytime as it is
great to hear from people back home.

I was born in Skegness but now live in London, close to Brentford's

(I lived there for a while) but I always follow the results of the other
"yellow belly" teams ( cunthorpe, Lincoln & Boston United) and it's
great to have another Lincolnshire club in the League. I have two
daughters; one following Grimsby and the other following Boston Utd. We
all like to say "Well done the Pilgrims".

Alas, I can't lay claim to being a knowlegable fan of the Pilgrims, as I
have not yet crossed the Atlantic, to visit Boston, the birthplace of
John Whiting, your Mayor in 1600 & 1608, (a VERY distant relative!). I
played the game in my later school years, and continue to follow the
sport here in the USA. It continues to gain in popularity, and massive
participation thanks to the American Youth Soccer Association. Best
Wishes for continued success, from an American fan of the game, in

- Paul "Windy" Wilde (pwilde1#ford+com)
Thanks for letting me re-join the Boston Barmy Army after many years
(5ish) in the wilderness. I moved to Boston at the age of 6, went to
Wyberton Primary and then became a "Grammar Puff". On the way I played
for Nortoft, Wyberton Colts, Boston FC Colts, Holland Schools,
Lincolnshire Schools and dabbled in a few trials games at Lincoln City
and Grimsby Town. It wasn't that I was good, just that I'd stick my head
in places more dangerous than Rumours (in the glory days). I've got the
X-rays to prove it (see my museum at Pilgrim). My football playing ended
in a friendly I played for "Cavaliers" about 3 years ago, when I badly
broke my ankle. I ran away from Boston in 1988 to complete a degree in
Manchester where we had a "Boston House". I then started work for ICI,
got another degree and left to join Ford Motor Company about 5 years ago.
I am now an ESSEX BOY and live in Upminster on the end of the District
Line. I still come "home" to Boston but not as often as I'd like. I got
married last year to Lisa whose family live in Lincolnshire.

I am a Fulham fan. Last May together with three others we visited Boston
United as we were playing Grimsby the following day. You beat Hereford
5-3. Since then we have followed your results. Our last ever game at
Craven Cottage is 27/4/02 against Leicester, so we won't be able to join
in with your celebrations when you beat Hayes, clinch the championship
and a well deserved place in the football league. "COME ON YOU PILGRIMS"

I have lived in Boston for 12 years and the year I moved here I think

going forwards again. Thank 'Evans!

Long distance supporter from Rochester in Kent. Was only able to see the
Pilgrims once last season and that was in the 2-1 defeat on the slope
at Margate. With Welling dropping down, I guess that a jaunt to Dover
will be my only opportunity this coming season.

York Street whenever my Canary commitments allow me. I usually go to
York Street with my Dad, Vic Woods, another Pilgrims fan who recently
retired after 40 years working for Batemans. Now that the Pilgrims are
in the Dr Martens League I shall have a chance to go to more away games
(Kings Lynn, Cambridge etc.).
- Vince Woods (bostonman#hot-toast+com)
I've followed the yellows ever since my dad took me for a birthday treat
in 1977 to endure a 0-0 draw with damn Runcorn. (Only notable event was
a Runcorn player being stretchered off after being hit on his 'little
fella' by a mishit pass by a Pilgrim). How things have changed! I now
live in Nottingham and I'm best friends with the A52.

I am the new edition of the Spayne Lane crew. I'm known to the boys as

But I believe Peter Dorr should be scouted by Trevor Quow. I enjoy doing

sometimes. Up the KTC!

Born in Leverton in 1950, supported the Pilgrims all my life. Job
opportunities meant relocation but always looked for the scores. I now

victory over Nuneaton. Looking forward to retirement in Boston - hope
the nerves survive!

country. Involved in Falklands conflict 1982. Married to Ruth for 9 years,
2 adorable daughters Amy(6), Annabel(4). Strong faith and belief in
Christianity - which keeps me sane in a mad world. Very pleased Boston are
now in Nationwide Conference because they can now visit Yeovil, which is
where I currently live. "Looking forward to Feb 2001". Still lots of
relatives in Boston, I get there about 4-5 times per year. Am I mad - I am
still proud to call it home. Finally - When Boston beat Grantham in May, "I
was there" - a great moment.
