Craig Elliott doesn’t want to build a squad of non-league superstars, because the Boston United boss believes the emphasis should be on the team and not individuals.

Elliott has always been keen to put square pegs in square holes since arriving at the Jakemans Stadium, and he says that approach will continue next season. Talking about his summer recruitment plans, the Pilgrims boss said:

“You can’t have kneejerk reactions and sign players because of reputations, or because they were good players last year. What I have learnt going through the leagues, the best players don’t always make the best team.

“You can sign the best 11 players in this league and it doesn’t mean you’ll have success.”

Elliott firmly believes that the right mental attitude from his squad members is the best way to build a solid team that works together for the common goal. With that in mind he doesn’t want his chain to have any weak links.
