Boston United 3 Harrogate Town 3: Match report
Boston United threw away a three-goal lead as Harrogate Town staged a remarkable second half fightback at the Jakemans Stadium in Skrill North.
A brace from Marc Newsham, plus a Spencer Weir-Daley strike, gave Dennis Greene’s side a commanding 3-0 lead at half-time.
Newsham opened the scoring in the 11th minute when he turned home a cross from Ricky Miller cross. United’s leading scorer doubled the lead from the penalty spot midway through the first half after the excellent Jake Hall had been tripped in the box.
Weir-Daley then got in on the act when he produced a classy finish after being set up by Miller.

With nothing to lose Harrogate boss Simon Weaver rolled the dice at half-time, making three substitutions – and two of them found the net in the second half.
First, the lively Liam Hardy fired home from 10 yards in the 68th minute before Dominic Rowe produced a sublime curling effort to make it 3-2.
At that stage there was still 19 minutes left for Harrogate to fashion an equaliser, and it arrived in dramatic fashion in the 85th minute. Substitute Netan Sansara had only been on the pitch a matter of minutes when his late and dangerous tackle on Leigh Franks was punished with a straight red card and a Harrogate penalty.
On loan striker Dayle Southwell took the spot-kick and fired past Ashley Timms to complete the visitors’ comeback.
