Visited for the Grimsby friendly in 2023. The ground itself was really good considering the league Boston is in. Facilities are great plenty of toilet space and options for food/drink for away supporters with reasonable prices. The standing area for away fans was good also plenty of space and Stewards around to support. The sound system at the ground is really good, you could hear everything that was being said Grimsby need to take note. Overall, a good game of football final score 3-2 to Boston I will return in future and watch a league game.

What a fantastic football place this is. The ground is straight forward to get to, parking is booked with your ticket, however, if you don’t do this, there’s plenty of free parking on the opposite side of the roundabout at a housing development, which is less than a 5 minute walk away from the ground. The stadium looks modern, and has a welcoming comfortable setup for the home supporters. It has a similar setup to a previous review I put up which I was also really impressed with (Bromley FC). There’s a gastropub attached to the stadium, but no door through to the stadium. It’s got some old memorabilia from the York Street Stadium in there, and the attention to detail is thoroughly impressive. Keep an eye out for the badge on pretty much everything! The pitch looked fantastic, the flood lights were different to any others I’ve seen which added to the modernised look. This stadium looks like it should be in the Football League. The facilities were fantastic, clean and everything you’d expect with a good toilet experience. Again, accessibility was brilliant for all users. The food was decent with a wide variety. There was also a great choice of drinks to choose from, all of which, were a reasonable price. There was a minority police presence, nothing to stop trouble between a local rival. The atmosphere was a bit quiet considering there was over 1500 people in there. But the team has been struggling of late, but it started to pick up towards the end when the result was all but confirmed. There were very few negatives, but the burger was incredibly greasy. Maybe I was just the unlucky one. The parking needs to be advertised when purchasing a ticket online a lot better, as I completely missed this. Again, these are very minor issues, that only real critics would have issues with. Brilliant Stadium, 100% worth a visit.
Band new Stadium! VERY good football played here. Spacious inside and out. Lots of parking there is a separate bar and merchandise shops here. Games are £14 per adult to watch.

Excellent new stadium although only three sided at present. Build quality is very good for this level of football. Atmosphere not yet as good as York Street but will improve. Viewing sight line are much better than before, a real class stadium. Parking limited at ground but plenty of street parking available at present

We were visiting from Berkshire to follow our relatives who were on the fundraising Ride for Elliott Aound the Wash in 80 Miles. We picked up the riders at your beautiful stadium with ample parking and a lovely atmosphere. Thanks BUFC

History (from Wikipedia)

Boston United play at York Street, currently styled as The Jakemans Stadium through a sponsorship deal. There are four sides to the stadium: the Main seated Mick George Stand; the Co-Operative York Street Stand; the Spayne Road Terrace; and the old away end—now known as The Jakemans Stand and turned into a home stand. The away fans currently sit in a section of the York Street Stand.

Former club chairman Jon Sotnick claimed it was not up to Football League standards and called for a new ground during the Pilgrims' time in the Football League.
[citation needed] Planning applications were made to Boston Borough Council in June 2006, but the council turned down the application. The ground has a total capacity of 6,643.

The club are looking to build a new stadium outside the town, and on 10 April 2019 announced that the 2019-2020 season will be their last at York Street.

For the beginning of the 2020–21 season, the club were granted permission to use 
Gainsborough Trinity's Northolme as their home ground temporarily whilst finishing touches were applied to their new stadium. [6]
