For three seasons as members of the United Counties League Premier Division, Boro’ came up against Bourne Town. More often than not, it was a struggle for us; the Wakes returning three wins from our six meetings. Our only victory against them came in May 1982. To be fair to ’em, you’d normally find them towards the top end of the table. But it wasn’t until 1991 that they added to four previous titles.

Bourne Town Travel Information – Distance: 72 miles
Take the A1(M) and A1 north from Stevenage until you come to Peterborough. You’ll want to leave the A1(M) at Junction 17; this is the exit for the A1139 Fletton Parkway. You don’t need to fret about a roundabout at the top of the slip road; it feeds straight onto the A1139.
At the first roundabout you reach, however, take the first exit for the A15 Paston Parkway. Keep on the A15 over the next four roundabouts. At the fifth, you’re staying on the A15 – but it also might show as the A1175. A mile later, though, you’ll be taking the first exit and ‘back’ on the A15.
Keep on the A15 when you come to a roundabout with a McDonalds by it. In 0.2 miles, take the right hand turn into Drummond Lane. Follow this to the end, before turning right onto Austerby. It’s then a left soon after for Willoughby Lane, which becomes Eastgate. At the end of Eastgate, turn left onto Spalding Road.
The ground is up here on the left, albeit hidden by local residential properties.
