Big crowd, bitter defeat for Rebels

26/ 8/2008

FC UNITED'S stuttering start in UniBond premier continued as the day's fourth highest non-League crowd saw them crash 1-0 to visiting Boston.

The Rebels have every reason to be satisfied with the Gigg Lane attendance of 2,825, which was beaten only by those recorded at Oxford, Cambridge and AFC Wimbledon, but not by a defeat which leaves them with a disappointing tally of four points from their first four games.

Boston's Ollie Ryan grabbed what proved to be the only goal of an entertaining contest when he fired home from just outside the six-yard box.
