Boston United’s youth team kicked off their National League U19 Alliance Academy North Division campaign with three points.

Sam Harris and Joe Melson found the net as Mark Thompson’s side secured a 2-1 victory on the road at Solihull Moors.

The side’s first round clash against Mansfield Town will be staged at the Jakemans Community Stadium on Thursday evening (November 4).

The young Pilgrims have defeated West Bridgford, Dunkirk, Mickleover Sports and the Spireites to book their place in the first round proper and a date with the Stags (KO 7pm).
