Bob Duncan`s heroes make history in the FA Cup

Boston FC 1, Bangor City 0

Phil Scothorne sent Boston FC into dreamland as his goal handed the Midland League underdogs a place in the 1st Round of the FA Cup.

He fired home a minute before the break after Tony Weighell's header from a corner came back off the bar.

The Northern Premier League side - who had already won at York Street earlier in the season - piled on some late pressure but FC held firm. And with nine minutes to go, Scothorne was denied making it 2-0 when fouled by Kevin Williams as he bore down on goal.

FC: John McPherson, Bon Don-Duncan, Dave Vaughan, Dennis Reeson, Dennis Beatson, Dave Manning, Roger Wood, Phil Scothrone, Tony Weighell, Mick Daley, Rob Himsworth (Dave Worthington)
