The Tigers fought back valiantly from a 2-0 deficit to level matters but were knocked out by a goal four minutes from time.

Twice in the first half Boston scored from corners but Holbeach gritted their teeth and with 10 minutes to go were back on level terms.

First Tommy Treacher pulled a goal back on the hour mark and then Josh Ford equalised in the 81st minute.
