From Florida to the Fens

Andy Sandall sees Boston Town win - after a gap of 12 years

Florida's number one Boston Town fan Andy Sandall proved to be a lucky charm when he saw them in action for the first time in 12 years.

The former Boston Grammar School pupil moved to the United States more than a decade ago but still takes a keen interest in the club from afar.

Andy was at Boston Town's home game against Harrowby United on Wednesday (31 August) as part of a rare visit to his home town - and the Poachers obliged with a thumping 5-0 win.

It was a particularly remarkable performance given that they had lost all six previous games so far this season.

Andy was an integral part of the Boston Town scene for many years. As well as being a fan, he carried out a number of roles wthin the club including kitman and programme editor.

He met up with several familiar faces at the DWB Stadium, including Jez Ashberry, another former programme editor at the club. He also caught up on old times with Pete and Pam Massam, Brian Curtis, Simon Ashberry, Pete Brooksbank and Mark Bruntlett.

It was Andy's first Boston Town match since the 2004 United Counties League Cup final at Yaxley which the Poachers won 3-2 against St Neots.

A graduate of the University College of Ripon and York St John and Leicester University, he first worked in New Jersey before moving to Florida where he is now executive director of the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach.
