Elliott hoping for non-league nous from Boston United newcomers

Craig Elliott believes that his hat-trick of new signings can bring more fight to the Boston United squad.

The past week has seen the Pilgrims boss add to his ranks with midfielder Brad Abbott from Buxton, former Grimsby Town and Spalding United defender Paul Walker and utility man Stephen Brogan, who has joined from National League North basement side North Ferriby. While Walker and Abbott have arrived from teams further down the footballing pyramid, Elliott believes they have the nous and battling qualities needed to help the club succeed.

"No disrespect to lads out of academies, but they don't know what non-league football's about, a lot of them," Elliott said. "These lads from lower leagues are good players."

"We can't be too snobby about where they've come from because I've played against them, I've seen them play. There are more than enough players from divisions below us good enough to play here.

"There are some cracking players and I have no qualms about signing anybody if I think they're good enough."
