Our Impressions of York Street
York Street Spayne Road Town End Stantons Timber Stand
A 'Kids for a Quid' scheme will be in operation again this season. This scheme operates in conjunction with the Boston Standard newspaper to give greatly reduced admission prices for children to Conference matches at York Street. The Boston Standard will contain a voucher for each home Conference match to be played during the coming week. Each voucher can be used to gain admittance to the terraces for one child (under 14) for ?1 to the match identified on the voucher when accompanied by a paying adult.
Every home Nationwide Conference match is to be segregated this season. Away supporters have been allocated an area of the York Street Stand (coloured yellow in the diagram above). Entrance to this area is via a designated turnstile. Coaches for away supporters will drop off and collect their passengers in York Street.
Ground Capacity: 8771, all covered
The all-seater Stantons Timber Stand is segregated from the terracing, so you need to go through the right turnstile to get to the bit you want to goto. Boston United supporters should use Turnstile A for access to the Stantons Timber Stand and Turnstiles B and C for access to the rest of the ground. Away team supporters should use their designated turnstile in the York Street Stand to get into the away team supporters' enclosure.
Match day programmes are only sold outside the ground. This season they cost £1.50.
There are two snack bars in the ground, a large one at the end of the Spayne Road terrace and a smaller one underneath the Stantons Timber Stand. They sell the usual range of fans' fodder including tea, coffee, bovril, hot chocolate, soup, soft drinks, pies, crisps, sausage rolls and pot noodles.
Directions to York Street
A1 to A17 Sleaford to Boston, over rail crossing, bear right at Eagle pub to lights over Haven Bridge, straight-on along John Adams Way (dual carriageway), turn right at traffic lights into Main Ridge, then right again into York Street. There is limited free parking available in front of the York Street stand. Away supporters travelling by car are advised to use the NCP car park off John Adams Way (after crossing the river take the first exit left off John Adams Way into the car park).
Nearest railway station: Boston (less than 1 mile from ground)
Route to ground on foot - Head down Station Street towards the Stump (the large church tower which dominates the skyline for miles around). At the end is a Police Station. Go through the car park and nip round the right side of the Police Station, then head over the footbridge over the river. On reaching the other side, turn right up an alleyway towards the Market Place. Keep going straight on, across a pelican crossing and keep going. Veer right down South Street and cross the road. Look out for a small road to the left called Spain Lane. Head down Spain Lane until you come to John Adams Way dual carriageway. There is a staggered pelican crossing to get you across. The ground is in front of you down Spayne Road. If you are a Boston United supporter and want to stand then use the turnstile you get to as you head down Spayne Road, if you want to sit down in the Stantons Timber Stand then you need to go to the opposite corner of the ground and enter by the appropriate turnstile in York Street. All away team supporters should enter the ground by their designated turnstile in the York Street stand. Altogether it is about a ten minute walk if you don't get lost!
