For those who’ve never been to the ‘Jakemans Community Stadium’ you’re in for a treat. Despite it being a bit out of town, it’s got quite a canny set up for supporters and the away end isn’t totally shite with lager being served in the stand behind the goal, some decent food and a few TV screens livestreaming the game in the bar area.
The away end is located at the far end of the ground when you drive in, as you can see below.
For some reason they don’t give you much information on what they class as a ‘Concession’ but I’d presume it’s the usual 65+, students and under 18’s. To purchase tickets so can do so here but make sure you select the away end as obviously, it’s segregated – https://bostonunitedfc.ktckts.com/event/bos2223h10/boston-united-v-blyth-spartans.
The bar at the ground (Ellenders) is pretty decent. Similar to Fylde, it’s got a wide range of lagers/ciders/ales and spirits on offer as well as some decent food. From memory the pints were a bit pricey but pretty good. You can find a bit more information here – https://www.thequadrantboston.co.uk/ellenders. Thankfully they allow away fans in but they don’t appreciate you playing games of chase the ace.
If you fancy something a bit more reminiscent of social clubs in Blyth, you have the ‘Wyberton Sports & Social Club’ just down the road from the sports complex. The club looks a little bit more like home to us, and probably has cheaper pints so we’ll very likely visit before the game.
If you’re not up for a pint, you have a fair few options right next to the ground with Starbucks, Costa Coffee, Greggs, Burger King and a Papa Johns.
From memory the car park at Boston is a canny size and I don’t think it charges a fee, mind I could be wrong I was pretty pissed by the time I got there last season.
Safe travels to all making the way down! Here’s hoping we return with the points.
