But there was defeat for their Boston Saturday League Premier rivals Pointon, who went down 3-0 at home to Division One side Boston College.

Fulbeck United went through, beating last year’s finalists Skegness Town Reserves 2-1, Paul Crampton and Nick Bates getting the vital goals.

Elsewhere the weather scuppered the hopes of Caythorpe and Billinghay, and also of Digby in a reduced league programme.
