Boston United: Club Profile
If relegation from the Football League wasn’t bad enough in 2007, the Pilgrims were actually demoted two divisions. By going straight into Conference North, therefore, it meant no reunion with us; the last time us meeting each other being during their 2001-2 promotion-winning campaign.

Travel Information – Distance: 86 miles
To get to Boston, go north on the A1(M) and A1 up to Peterborough. Come off the A1(M) at Junction 17, which puts you on the Fletton Parkway (A1139). Stay on here for seven miles until you come to a roundabout. Take the third exit to remain on the A1139, then it's the third exit at the next roundabout for the A47.
In just under a mile with a McDonalds and Esso on your left as you approach a roundabout, take the first exit onto Crowland Road. Keep going straight for about four miles in total. You'll come to a roundabout, at which point take the third exit for the A16. Stay on the A16 for around seven miles.
As the road bends around to the left, you'll have a right turn onto Mill Drove North. Go up here for about two miles, before turning left onto Weston Hills Road (B1165). In under a mile on the outskirts of Spalding, take the third exit at the roundabout to rejoin the A16 north.
You'll be staying on the A16 all the way to Boston now; crossing the River Witham and snaking around to the right and then left. Turn right onto Main Ridge East, then right again onto York Street. It's then another right onto Spayne Road.
The club says there is no parking available at the ground itself, unless you're a guest or permit holder. The advice, therefore, is to find street parking.

The walk from the town's station is around a mile and can be done in under 20 minutes. Go east from the station on Station Road, turning left onto Tower Street and following it around to the right. This brings you out onto the riverside. Turn right and follow the path to the first bridge you come to.
Go across the river here and turn right onto Church Street. Keep following the river down towards the Guildhall. You'll be turning left onto John Adams Way at the end of this stretch. Follow the road around to the left and then take a right into Spayne Road.
