It seems but a distant memory now and one that youngsters can only dream of.
Back in the 2001/02 season Boston United were the kings of non-league football as they played their way to promotion to the Football League.
Goals from Simon Weatherstone and Ray Warburton secured a 2-0 victory at Hayes as the Pilgrims pipped Dagenham and Redbridge to the Conference title on goal difference.
The United fans turned out in their droves to celebrate at Hayes and back home.
Here we have nipped into our archives to remember that magic moment in the club’s history.
