Boston United FC- York Street


Visits:1
Boston United 2-1 Gainsborough Trinity (Conference North, March 21st 2015)
Stands I’ve Been in: Spayne Road Terrace
Ticket Price (1st Visit): £12
Attendance (1st Visit): 1,319
Address: York Street, Boston, Lincolnshire, PE21 6JN

Transport

A deceptively long drive through England's deceptively massive county. Parking is alright though, it's quite close to the town centre so you can use any of the pay car parks there, or there is plenty of street parking in the streets around the ground.

Food & Drink

As said, it's close to the town centre so take your pick. There is a big chippy as you turn into York Street as well.

Inside the Ground

Classic non league ground, as good as some League grounds. Flawless view from the two covered terraces, the Town End behind one goal, and the Spayne Road Terrace down one side, with the all seater Main Stand down the other. Its only really the York Street End that looks like it needs some work, reminded me a bit of the North Terrace at Stevenage. Its just an odd little mishmash with some seating upstairs, a shallow little terrace at the front, and some odd temporary seating in the middle of the lower section.

Atmosphere

The Gainsborough fans never made a sound all game. Boston fans in the Town End gave it a little bit of something, but it wasnt great really. Especially not with a drum.

Overall

Lovely little ground, reminded me of Cambridge and Southport. One worth seeing before they move in the next few years.
