Here's who scored the first ever Boston United goal at Shodfriars Lane:

Billy Blessed Forward (33-34) An outside right. Scored Boston United's first goal in their first ever match (http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/C260833.html) against Grimsby Town Reserves. The goal, after twelve minutes was shot hard into an open goal after Blessed had been picked out from a free-kick centred by Simmons. The goal gave Boston the lead, but they went on to lose the match 1-3 after their keeper had gone off injured at half-time. Had previously played for Dulwich Hamlet and Crystal Palace as an amateur. Later played for Nuneaton.

The Outside Right position was usually the right sided attacking midfielder/winger and was player No. 7. So if history repeats itself with the current squad that could be:  Andi Thanoj

His two goals were in the 1989/90 (http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/seas89.html) season. The first was in a 2-1 win at Barnet on Tuesday 12th September and the second was the only goal in a 1-0 win at Enfield on Saturday 18th November. So he never actaully scored a goal at York Street.

I've now got every player's statistsics up to the end of last season in the Rollcall (http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/rollcall.html).

Also I've put together a list of Player's Statistics (http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/PlayerStatistics2.html) with the columns sortable - so if you click on the column header it sorts it A-Z or smallest to largest then click again to get Z-A or largest to smallest. So you can easily find out things such as most FA Cup goals or most appearances or all the Harrys.

Looking like the first chance may be on Saturday, Covid allowing. Chorley don't concede many goals though, so may have to wait a little bit longer for that first historic Boston goal at the new ground.

And so it was.

And thanks to the streaming service at the new ground a lot of us got to see it and it was a cracking goal. (The streaming worked much better this week - even the commentary)

To be honest I still had a lot of buffering issues today. I didn't see Fylde score at all (because it was buffering), I didn't know that Fylde had the ball in the net at the end of the game until I heard Craig Elliott's interview (because it was buffering), and then Scott Garner's penalty buffered and hung in mid air for about 30 seconds before I knew it was in. Happy that the club is doing everything it can and the issue must be with individual people's broadband services, but if anyone has got any tips on anything I can do to improve the current watching experience please let me know.

I did see Conor Dimaio's goal, but I already knew we were going to score because I got an update from Flash Scores before the goal actually reached my screen!

Worked perfectly for me today. Credit where it's due, many complained last week. Both audio and video were good.

Do you know if your broadband connection is slow generally Leciester Pilgrim? Google broadband speed test and see what speed is. If it's slow say below 5mbps one option to try would be to click on the setting cog icon in the bottom right of the video player on bostonunited.live and reduce the quality setting from 1080p down to a lower setting and see if that helps. Or the other option would be if you are on a wifi internet connection at home and are a long way from the router and have  weak signal then try somewhere nearer.

Thanks Lee. At moment I'm getting 44Mbps, which I don't think is too bad, but obviously didn't test my speed during the game as I was trying to watch it. I've been working from home during Covid and there is a huge downturn in the performance of the works IT network at peak, times of day compared to out of hours, so I think my Internet performance is a bit variable.

I hadn't realised there was a cog to reduce the screen quality (only able to watch on a small tablet screen), but will try that next match. I don't think it's an issue with being too far away from the router as I can watch programmes on BBC iplayer, etc, on the same device in the same seat without any performance issues.

It worked very well for me today, unlike last week. Like LP, I have Flash Scores and think that I need to hide my phone with it on silent so I don't know about goals before I see them go in!

perfect here. Great pic and sound of the stream well done to all concerned.  As for the game for a Fa trophy game it was a great advert. to really good teams having a really good go at each other. Think the result was right but what a goal to score to be the first Boston goal at the JCS

Well done Lee for guessing correctly, and what a goal it was.

Mine was perfect picture & sound throughout.  I wish I could get it a few more mins before kick-off.
