Nothing specific on the FA website, but there does seem to be a north / south divide in Q3 games in previous years. I guess it depends on how the clubs in the round are distributed geographically. Boston United seem to get drawn against Midlands or Southern teams at this stage, though back in 2012 we got an away game against Tadcaster Albion up here in Yorkshire and in 2008 we got a trip to Southport. So teams in the Midlands can probably get drawn against either Northern or Southern teams, so it could be anyone for us.

Won't have long to wait to find out though, looks like the draw is at 1pm tomorrow.

The B-Ark / Prediction League - Boston United vs Guiseley
« on: September 18, 2021, 05:43:24 PM »
Back to National League North action with a visit of Guiseley. My Computer is predicting a narrow Boston win. I'll go with that, so:

Boston United 2-1 Guiseley (1450)

3
Here are the updated points after:

Boston United 6-0 Corby Town (1360)

Not surprisingly, nobody managed to predict the correct score, but as Mad Dog has pointed out, oxo had a 6-1 prediction, but didn't have enough faith in the Boston defence to go for the 6-0. :)

jelsam was closest to the correct attendance, being just 4 out and moves above dt woodhall to the top of the table.

The B-Ark / Re: Prediction League - Leamington vs Boston United
« on: September 17, 2021, 10:51:53 PM »
Here are the updated points after:

Leamington 2-0 Boston United (565)

Nobody got the correct score and only eight people got the attendance within 5% - the closest being Wyberton Pilgrim who was just 3 out.

Nice piece on Prof JVT on the BBC this morning:

The B-Ark / Corby Town tonight
« on: September 14, 2021, 10:39:00 PM »
I see Corby Town won 5-0 against Histon Town this evening - with their substitute goalkeeper coming off the bench and playing as an outfielder and getting a goal. It's going to be a tricky FA Cup game on Saturday.

The B-Ark / Prediction League - Boston United vs Corby Town in the FA Cup
« on: September 13, 2021, 08:44:51 PM »
Boston United have played Corby Town three times in the FA Cup - all at Corby and all Boston wins. I'm going for another Boston win - with the same score as the 1973/4 game where the FA Cup run ended with the matches against Derby County in the 3rd round proper.

Boston United 2-1 Corby Town (1400)

The B-Ark / Re: Corby
« on: September 08, 2021, 06:19:29 PM »
One of Steve Evans first clubs after he stopped playing was at Corby. Not sure what he did there though. Seems he was Chairman for a short period in 1994. This article on him says "After eighteen months of relative mediocrity at Holbeach, and after a strange spell as chairman of Corby Town, Evans made the switch to fellow United Counties Premier League club Stamford where his career as a manager got under way in earnest."

Anyone know what happened there?

The B-Ark / Prediction League - Leamington vs Boston United
« on: September 04, 2021, 05:36:45 PM »
Recent games indicate anything could happen with this one. Both sides have already had matches against Curzon Ashton and Spennymoor Town. Boston lost to Spennymoor and beat Curzon Ashton and Leamington beat Spennymoor and lost to Curzon Ashton. My Computer is predicting an Away Win. I'm going for:

Leamington 0-2 Boston United (650)

Leamington are due to play Gateshead on Tuesday night, so you may want to see what happens in that one before making your prediction.

The B-Ark / Re: Prediction League - Boston United vs AFC Telford United

Match off due to Covid incident with Telford. I'll bring this back once it's rearranged.

The B-Ark / Bradford Park Avenue match photos
« on: September 01, 2021, 08:19:46 PM »
I've put the usual set of match photos over on my Facebook page and shared it with the Boston United Supporters Group.

I've also put a selection in the Gallery on my web site: http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/bradfordparkavenue300821.html

Took a bit of getting used to the camera again, but I think I've got a few decent snaps. I've tried to get a shot of every player so it's easy to identify all the new ones - although the names on the backs of the shirts helps a lot.

12
I was 300 out on the attendance. Where did they all come from? Many away fans?

There were lots of Boston fans there. More than half the main stand was amber and black and quite a few behind the goal.

Also they have a deal with Bradford City fans, so there may have been a few of them there. If Bradford City haven't got a game then their season ticket holders can get in to watch Park Avenue at a reduced admission of £5.

Here are the updated points after:

Bradford Park Avenue 1-2 Boston United (723)

Sixteen people got the correct score but again nobody got anywhere near the actual attendance - doc was the closest being 102 out.

The B-Ark / Prediction League - Boston United vs AFC Telford United
« on: August 31, 2021, 07:32:42 AM »
It's usually a close game against Telford. My Computer reckons a draw. I'm going for:

Boston United 2-1 AFC Telford United (1650)

The B-Ark / Re: Prediction League - Boston United vs Curzon Ashton
« on: August 28, 2021, 09:48:44 PM »
Here are the updated points after:

Boston United 2-1 Curzon Ashton (1497)

Lots of points picked up with 19 people getting the correct score, 32 getting the attendance within 5% and 11 doing both.
