Congratulations Fozzy and Ollie!

Ollie and Fozzy achieve appearances milestones

Congratulations to two Boston Town players on reaching major landmarks this weekend!

Yesterday's win at Harborough saw Ollie Pinner achieve the milestone of 200 games for the Poachers.

And Mark Foster made his 250th appearance in the 4-1 victory.

Pinner was first blooded into the Boston Town first team as a teenager by then manager Bob Don-Duncan in August 2004.

His debut - coming on as a sub for Danny Matson - was so long ago that his team-mates that day included the long-departed Richard Pell, Lee Rippin and Ross Don-Duncan.

A hallmark of Pinner's career at Tattershall Road has been his versatility. Having played in defence, midfield and attack, he completed the full set earlier this season when he took over between the sticks after Callum Bastock sustained a head injury against Sleaford.

In reaching the rare landmark of 250 appearances for the club, Foster has been one of the Poachers' most reliable performers over the past six seasons.

The midfielder made his debut three years later than Pinner in August 2007 but has rarely been out of the side for more than a handful of games.

Both players have each had a brief spell away from Tattershall Road but fans were delighted to see them return.

Boston Town historian Simon Ashberry said: "Fozzy and Ollie deserve great credit not just for their excellent performances over the years but for their loyalty to the club.

"There have been a lot of comings and goings on and off the pitch in recent seasons so it's been important for the likes of Fozzy, Ollie and Town's other longest-serving player Lori Borbely to offer some much-needed stability."
