Boston United boss Craig Elliott admitted that Saturday’s title party at Salford City has further whetted his appetite for success at The Jakemans Stadium.

The Ammies took the National League North title despite suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Pilgrims, which was secured courtesy of first half goals from Reece Thompson and Kabongo Tshimanga and a resilient second half defensive effort. Salford prevailed after nearest rivals Harrogate Town suffered a 3-1 defeat at Bradford Park Avenue – just days after their own 3-0 reversal to the Pilgrims.

With over 200 United fans at the Peninsula Stadium on Saturday, Elliott is hungry for success.

He said: “My hunger is higher than ever now after seeing that. I thought the fans were amazing. I did think to myself ‘imagine if we had to win this game to win the league’ and the fanbase is certainly incredible. I hope to repay them in the future with a successful team and hopefully we can be in these sort of surroundings.”
