Here we are – the last of the 2021/2022 season recaps. Last up is Johnny Chapman, who I accidentally ignored at Matlock before finally catching up with at Gloucester, where he told me I’d overpaid for my train tickets by about thirty quid. Summed up the day to be honest. And do I need to […]
Right, we’re nearly there. Just two more of these to go before ToD can return to a well-deserved slumber for about two years. In the penultimate season recap, Scott Burrell – @scottbufc over on Twitter, go give him a follow! – takes us through his highlights of the season and how he thinks Boston United […]
Callum Bates – or @designerb8sy as you may know him from Twitter – is the latest Pilgrims fan to recap the 21/22 season for Trail Of Dead, although if you’re here to find out what his asbolute favourite goal of the season was you may well be disappointed. Callum is of course currently in the […]
The season recaps continue at ToD. Today it’s the turn of long-time Pilgrims fan Adam Upsall to offer up his thoughts on where things went right last season, and where they might have gone better. My favourite moment of the season was… Entering the JCS for the Lincoln pre-season game. The time away from watching […]
As we continue to reflect on the 2021/2022 season, Christian ‘Spreadsheets’ James joins ToD to give his spin on what he enjoyed most about the season, and what he really didn’t. If you’re a Chester fan, look away now. You’re almost certainly already following Christian on Twitter, but if you’ve somehow evaded his tweets about […]
As the dust settles on 2021/2022, it’s time to reflect on the season we’ve just enjoyed (or endured) and look ahead to what the future holds for Boston United as we head into the summer and beyond. Today, it’s the turn of United photographer, and fanzine writer, Oliver Atkin, who gives us his highlights – […]
So, the 2021/2022 season is over – and it ended in unexpected playoff heartbreak after an underwhelming race to seventh place. But as with every season, there’s more to the story. Pete Brooksbank gives his highlights – and lowlights – from what would turn out to be a really weird season.
Strolling into Matlock Town’s glorious Causeway ground last Friday, it was remarkable how different some things were, and yet also how familiar.
As the weirdest of years gets even weirder, the weirdest of football seasons finally got underway on Saturday, the sodden murk at Gainsborough providing a fitting backdrop to perhaps the strangest and most low-key start to any season in Boston United’s history.
In all the excitement of Boston United playing – and winning – their first home fixture since the Neolithic era on Tuesday night, you might have missed the club (or more specifically, Craig Singleton) drip feeding us new photos from the site of the new Community Stadium development over the last 24 hours.
Back in April, his voice on the verge of cracking, Boston United chairman David Newton gripped the microphone, stared back at supporters gathered in the club’s Pilgrim Lounge and reiterated his determination to deliver them a new stadium.
