Boston United 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers
Coca Cola League 2

My first visit to Boston United's York Street came in October 2004. Despite being 11th in the table, Wycombe were still only 4 points off the top of the table. This game was towards the end of Tony Adams' reign at Wycombe and I recall this as the time he played Joe Burnell and Matt Bloomfield together in central midfield, despite them both being totally unfit, having come back from long lay offs. And it showed, as a mix up between the 2 allowed Andy Kirk in to score in the 14th player. He added a second in the second half in a flat performance by Wycombe. The only other visit I made there was a slight improvement - we managed yet another draw in the 2005/06 season, the year where we drew a seemingly record number of games.

YORK STREET was one of the better grounds when they were in Non League, and still was pretty decent when they were promoted to the football league. They have since gone back into non league, after financial woes, and are currently playing in the Conference North. 2 sides of the ground are covered terracing - behind the goal and along the side. The away fans got behind the goal on my last visit. The other 2 sides mainly seating - with a small terraced area in front of the stand behind the goal. The ground is close to the town centre, but there isn't an amazing amount of choice, as it is a smaller town than most.
