Boston will be picking themselves up after finishing 15th in what was a disappointing campaign for The Pilgrims. Up until last season, the club were regularly challenging for promotion, with four of the last six seasons resulting in play-off campaigns. The Lincolnshire outfit, now managed by Adam Murray, will be hoping to get back to that point after a number of pre-season signings.

York street is one of the nicer grounds in the division, and County fans are no strangers to visiting, both during League 2 matches and Conference North. Away supporters are usually placed at one end of the ground depending on their expected attendance, and the fact that a roof covers the majority of the 6000 seats in the ground means a good atmosphere can be made by even a small number of travelling supporters.
