Newsham finally gets his reward as Boston United continue flying start
Marc Newsham ended a poor day by his standards in the best possible fashion as Boston United brushed aside Skrill North new boys Leamington FC.
Newsham made it 2-0 when he struck from close range with 12 minutes remaining, adding to Ricky Miller’s rasping finish earlier in the second half.
Up to that point it had been a rare off-day for the Pilgrims’ goal machine, who had wasted several chances.
“It looked like it wasn’t going to be my day,” confessed Newsham, who struck 30 goals last season and already has two this term.

“I missed a chance in the first half when Ricky (Miller) pulled it back. I was a bit disappointed with that and with a couple of others.
“But you’ve just got to keep going because sometimes it isn’t your day. We had some good chances in the first half, but luckily Ricky scored and I managed to get one near the end.”
Newsham and his team-mates are now turning their attention to Monday’s opponents North Ferriby United.
The Villagers began the season with a bang, winning their first two games, but were thrashed 5-0 at Harrogate Town on Saturday.
“We know a few of their players and it will be a tough game,” added Newsham. “They were beaten 5-0 on Saturday which was a surprised.
“We both played on Saturday so there will be tired legs, but we’ll be confident although we’re keeping our feet on the ground.”
