'The best goal I've ever scored' - Peter Bore on his wonder strike against Telford United
Boston United defender Peter Bore branded his wonder goal in the 1-1 draw with AFC Telford United as the best of career.
Bore struck three minutes before half-time with a stupendous effort from at least 30 yards to haul the Pilgrims level against the Bucks, who had taken an early through Sean Clancy’s penalty.
Having played further up the pitch for the likes of Lincoln City, Grimsby Town and York City during his career, the 25-year-old certainly knows where the goal is.
But he says there have been none better than last night’s thunderbolt against the Skrill North promotion favourites.

“It’s probably the best goal I’ve ever hit,” declared Bore, one of the Pilgrims’ eight summer signings.
“I had a shot against Stockport on Saturday and that trickled wide. That did go through my mind, but then I thought ‘no, I’m going to hit it’ and luckily in went in. If you don’t shoot you don’t score.
“It was just power. I tried to get my technique right and just put my foot through it.”
Bore felt Boston deserved all three points from a thrilling encounter, which saw a string of chances at both ends.
“I thought the lads were great and we thoroughly deserved to win,” he added.
“We were on the attack, had chances and were unlucky, but we’ll take that point because, although we could have won it, we could have lost it as well . They had chances too.”
Pilgrims boss Dennis Greene also felt his side deserved all three points and questioned the award of Telford’s 13th minute when Tony Gray was adjudged to have been dragged back by Scott Garner.
“I think we deserved more and the penalty was really harsh,” said Greene.
“Scott just put a bit of pressure on him and the lad has gone down. So I thought it was harsh and we didn’t get too much out of the referee all night.
“All they (Telford) were was a big, strong side who banged it forward quickly. But we showed how resilient how we are. We won all our headers and Ashley (Timms) has not had a save of note to make.
“At the other end, we made them work. We got in behind them time and time again, but just couldn’t make that killer pass.
“I think we looked the more threatening side with the ball on the floor.”
