On this day: A golden anniversary

Poachers celebrate 50 years since their first league title

Today is the 50th anniversary of Boston FC's first ever silverware.

It was on 17 April 1965 that captain Bert Linnecor was presented with the Lincolnshire League trophy at the end of the club's very first season.

Ironically, the cup was handed over on the day that FC surrendered their unbeaten record in the league - losing 2-1 at home to Lysaghts Sports.

The Lincs League was the first of eight league titles to have been won by the Poachers over the past half a century.
