Workington 1, Boston United 2
"Shit!! Shit!! You're shit, Reds!"
And you thought Boston fans were demanding arseholes? Tell that to the vein-popping racialist who, after chastising Kevin Austin for having the audacity to parade about in his NON-WHITE skin like he FUCKING OWNED THE PLACE, decided to boo his own team after 93 minutes of a ten month season after they were beaten by a ludicrously fortunate Kevin Holsgrove winner in injury time, a goal that had five Boston fans scaling the perimeter fence with delight and another (it looked like Scotty Walds) waving his top over his head and risking serious sunburn in the process.
"Bloody rubbish! Shit!" yelled the spittle-flecking Workington fan. He'd turned to his friend as Holsgrove's winner dribbled pathetically over the line and asserted it was 'the worst goal he'd ever seen, and on that he was probably right. Boston's fortune could be seen in Jason Lee's arched eyebrows and cheeky grin after the final whistle. But it was just that: an unexpected three points for United, and a very unlucky defeat for the Reds. For all the fan's anger, his side had comfortably repelled United's makeshift attack and it was only a freak pinball incident and a harsh penalty decision that saw his side trudging off with nothing to show for their shift. Hardly worthy of condemnation.
But opening day can bring out the worst in people, and little wonder. It's a day when hopes and expectations are brutally crushed; a day when fans up and down the country realise that their side hasn't suddenly stopped being average over the summer. Ask Grimsby supporters. However, opening day 2011/2012 was a unique experience for Boston fans: they got to travel to Borough Park and actually see a pitch made of grass. Hope you got lots of photos for the album, kids.
Holsgrove stepped up, scored the penalty, and promptly retreated to the dressing room with the rest of the players for a chat with his manager and a half-time orange. Workington returned for the second-half desperate to level things up and immediately began pressing United back. They had to get past Kevin Austin first, however, and while United's defender wasn't making any friends on the pitch he certainly played a vital role in blunting their advances.
United pressed forward in the final minutes, and, as the game entered injury time, Holsgrove worked into some space and unleashed, from a preposterous distance, a spectacularly hopeless shot that rolled, very slowly, into the grateful arms of Aaron Taylor, eliciting frustrated grumbles from United fans. If Holsgrove heard those moans, he certainly wasn't deterred from repeating the trick a couple of minutes later, this time on the left of the penalty area. His shot from outside the area was equally as rubbish, except this time it took a deflection and reluctantly spun goalwards as Taylor sank to the ground helplessly, watching in horror as the ball rolled slowly into the net.
