The lack of manager and consequent loss of players has sadly led Boston United to withdraw their ladies team from the East Midlands League Premier Division, despite coasting to promotion last season.

Boston United issued the following statement on their website:

“Despite our best efforts the club has been unsuccessful in recruiting a manager for our Ladies team for the forthcoming season. At the same time, a number of players have understandably sought to secure their playing opportunities with other clubs in the region.

“As a result, at this late stage, we cannot be confident of recruiting a new manager, nor a squad of a sufficient size or calibre, to compete in the East Midlands Regional Premier League in the 2019-2020 season.

“We have therefore regrettably concluded that we have no option but to disband our Ladies team, a decision we have not taken lightly. We do not rule out resurrecting a Ladies team in the future and will keep the situation under annual review.

“We would like to thank our Ladies squad and support staff for the enthusiasm and commitment they have shown, which achieved so much in a relatively short three seasons.

“They have all been great ambassadors for Boston United Football Club.”
