FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round: Kirby Muxloe 1 Boston United 2

Kirby Muxloe Sports Ground. 400 Ratby Ln, Kirby Muxloe, Leicester LE9 2AQ

We usually like to spread our visits around a variety of clubs but Saturday saw us attend our 4th Kirby Muxloe match of the season. It was a no-brainer after watching them play both games in the last round (inc. replay) to get up to Ratby Lane for the biggest game in the clubs history. National League North side Boston United from 4 divisions further up the pyramid promised a stern test and a big crowd. Over 330 were in to see Kirby take a shock lead before a disappointing Boston side eventually ran-out 2-1 winners.

Frankie’s mate Tiere joined us for the day for what was his first ever live football match. He loved it, especially the kickabout at HT, the chance to get right-up close to the pitch and shouting some well-aimed ‘bantz’ at Boston’s disgraceful number 10* (*Swearing at supporters, trying to fight half of Kirby’s team whilst being utterly rubbish).
