Review of 2013

Web editor Simon Ashberry looks back over the past 12 months

We all know football seasons run from August to May.

But as we embark on 2014, it's interesting to look at Boston Town's overall record over a complete calendar year.

The Poachers finished last season in poor form and then found themselves in the relegation zone until not not so long ago - however, 2013 was relatively kind to considering the team's mixed fortunes of recent months.

In all, Town played 19 league games in 2013 to complete last season, winning eight, drawing three and losing eight.

Adding that to the 24 games Boston have played this season so far gives us a complete league record over the year as follows:

Pld     W       D        L       F        A       GD     Pts
43      13      9         21    62     87      -25      48

That would have put Town somewhere just below halfway in the United Counties League in a regular season.

The club began the year in the middle of a run of five consecutive wins but ended the 2012-13 season with a disappointing four defeats on the bounce. And that losing mentality proved difficult to shake off until the arrival of Nathan Collins.

One player who has had a particularly satisfactory 12 months is Josh Ford.

Having scored seven goals up to the end of 2012, he added a further 13 to his tally from January to May and has now scored a further 15 so far this campaign, making his tally an impressive 28 for the calendar year.
