York Street, currently styled as The Jakemans Stadium for sponsorship purposes, is a football stadium in Boston, England, and is the home ground of Boston United. Originally called Shodfriars Lane, football has been played on the site since the late 19th century by a variety of Boston teams, but it has been used by Boston United since 1933. In the late 1970s the ground was rebuilt.
Although the ground currently has a maximum capacity of 6,643, the record crowd is 11,000 against Derby County. 10 further attendances of more than 8,000 are on record. The ground has stood in the centre of the town of Boston since the 19th century, and has been given a variety of names since its construction. For 40 years before York Street's current tenants, Boston United were founded it was known as 'Main Ridge'. In the mid-fifties the York Street Stand was built, and the ground's first floodlights were installed.
These were first played under in 1955, when over 9,000 fans watched Bostons first floodlit game against Corby Town. The new floodlights, erected in each of the four corners of the ground, allowed the Pilgrims to play in various floodlit competitions at the time. In 1977, York Street failed an inspection for league grading, leading to local fundraising in 1978 which resulted in new terracing, stands, floodlights, toilets, turnstiles and snack bars.
