FULL TIME: CLEETHORPES TOWN 1-0 BOSTON UNITED
A piece of individual brilliance from Cleethorpes Town’s Jon Oglesby was enough to decide a closely fought contest against Boston United at LNER Stadium on Tuesday 10 March, in the final of Lincolnshire FA’s 2019/20 Senior Cup, sponsored by Bluefin Sport Insurance.
A first half of few chances left the game goalless at the break, but Player of the Match Jon Oglesby made his mark on the occasion shortly before the hour-mark, superbly lobbing the Boston ‘keeper after receiving a pass from Curtis Bateson.
The Owls held onto their one-goal advantage to retain the Senior Cup title in front of a crowd of 367 inside LNER Stadium, the home of Lincoln City.
After the match, Cleethorpes were presented with their trophy by Chris Walker from competition sponsors Bluefin Sport Insurance, whilst Oglesby received his Player of the Match award from Benjamin Jacobs, also of Bluefin Sport.
Congratulations once again to Cleethorpes on their victory and to Boston for reaching this stage of the competition. Thanks also go to Lincoln City for their hospitality and our Senior Cup Final match officials; Lewis Morgan, David Jones, Will Murray and Andy Pontin (pictured below, in text order).
