AFC Fylde will play in the National League North next season, a division the Coasters were promoted from as champions in the 2016/17 season.


We take a look at next season’s opponents, as Jim Bentley and his side look to secure promotion back to the National League.

Our next team ‘under review’, is Boston United.



The Pilgrims


Pilgrim Way, known as the Jakemans Community Stadium (Capacity 5,000)

2019/20 League Position:


Star Player 19/20:

Andi Thanoj – The talented playmaker scored 7 goals in 32 appearances for the Pilgrims last season, forming a formidable partnership with Brad Abbott in the United midfield. Originally from Albania, Thanoj has also enjoyed spells in the National League North with Alfreton Town and Harrogate Town.


Craig Elliott – The former Shaw Lane boss was appointed manager of Boston in November 2017 after guiding the former Barnsley based club to three promotions. He almost achieved his first promotion with the Pilgrims last season as they lost out in the play-off final to Altrincham earlier this month.

Last Played:

The last meeting between the sides in April 2017 was an unforgettable day for Coasters fans. A brace from Danny Rowe and a goal from Matty Hughes earned a comfortable 3-0 win at York Street to seal the National League North title with a game to spare.

Last Played Home: 19/11/16 – AFC Fylde 9-2 Boston United

Last Played Away: 22/04/17 – Boston United 0-3 AFC Fylde
