HOLT United, in their first competitive match of the season took on a young Boston United X1 side on Sunday at the Sports Centre. Money raised from the match went to the Gary Graveling Memorial Fund.

A crowd of around 150 saw a well-contested game. Missing five key players, Holt hit the front when defender James Medlar scored. Holt were looking sharp but at the break had not been able to extend their lead.

Early in the second half Jason Hawkins slotted the ball past the keeper to give Holt a two-goal lead.

With both team making many changes, the visitors showed their extra fitness, and within 15 minutes had raced into a 3-2 lead, which turned out to be the final score from a game that was well-refereed by John Coates and his young team of match officials.

Thanks to a great raffle, which was run by Sue, Jo and Bob Moore, over £800 was raised towards

the fund.
