Boston Tn 4,
March Town Utd 1
Hares boss Paul Crosbie commented on Saturday’s friendly defeat: “We played well and showed plenty of promise. We contested the full 90 and three self-inflicted goals in the first half cost us.
“We missed a sitter at 2-0 down then they got a killer third moments later.
“In the second half we were better, moved the ball well and were more incisive in the final third. We conceded a sloppy fourth but battled on.”
David Jackson pulled a goal back with a header. March had a few more chances through Jackson, registered triallist Paul Richardson, Jake Ogden and Lewis Thompson.
Crosbie added: “Boston are in the same league as Wisbech and spending big this season.
“I feel we are heading in the right direction and if we cut out the mistakes we will do okay this season.”
March: Collett, G. White, Watson, Cook, Mattless, Lemmon, Ogden, Jackson, Thompson, Bryan, Richardson. Subs: S. White, Blanchflower, Alexander.
