Gainsborough Trinity beat bitter rivals Boston United for the second time this season, with a 2-0 win in the FA Cup on Saturday.

A bumper crowd of 725 watched at the Martin and Co Arena, as goals from Marc Newsham - a former Pilgrim - and Nathan Jarman put the Blues in the next round.

Newsham’s left-foot strike, and Jarman’s spectacular free-kick, both in the first half, were followed by a solid defensive performance and some great goalkeeping by Jan Budtz to keep Boston at bay.
