Leading League goalscorer:
Boston United made their debut in the Football League against Bournemouth on Saturday 10th August 2002 - but only just.

They say that hope is the one thing every football supporter needs. It needed a last-match 4-2 victory over Hull at the Vetch Field to keep Swansea City in the Football League. Who would have believed that just eight years later they would be playing in a modern stadium in the Premier League. But that progress was slow compared to Hull who were playing in the Premier just 5 years later.
