Points on the road for Stones

Cogenhoe Utd 1 Blackstones 3

Boston Town 0 Blackstones 0

BLACKSTONES moved up to fifth in the UCL Premier Division with a win and a draw away from home this week.

Stones beat Cogenhoe 3-1 away from home on Saturday courtesy of a 28th minute strike from Michael Nelson and second half penalties from Ben Easson and Adam Scotcher.

Courtney Herbert’s late goal for Cogenhoe was a late consolation.

Then on Tuesday Stones ground out a goalless draw at Boston which delighted joint boss Darren Jarvis.

He said: “Andy Buckle hit the post and we had a couple of half chances. Not many teams come away with anything from Boston.”

Stones face Irchester and Thrapston at home in their next two games and Jarvis added: “We are ahead of where we wanted to be and are looking to pick up six points from our next two games.”

l BLACKSTONES U18s are still flying the flag in the Lincolnshire County Cup after an impressive quarter final win at Cleethorpes Town on Sunday.

Cleethorpes boasted a 100 percent record going into the game and, after a poor start by the Stamford side, they went ahead with a soft goal.

Stones grew stronger in the second half and Declan Carr levelled the match before firing home from 25 yards to give Stones the lead.

Cleethorpes drew level but Carr rounded off a superb hat-trick to eliminate last year’s champions.
