Boston United manager Craig Elliott is determined to get his recruitment correct as he aims to build on the momentum generated by the Pilgrims over recent months.

United moved into ninth place in the final National League North standings at the weekend following their 1-0 home win over AFC Telford United. It completed a remarkable turnaround from the position which Elliott inherited in November, with the new manager harvesting 44 points from his 24 league matches at the United helm.

Former Shaw Lane boss Elliott said: “Perspective is important and from where we have come from, everybody can be proud of themselves in that dressing room. League tables never lie and if you finish ninth, you deserve to finish ninth.

“I backed myself to stay up. I would not have taken the job if I did not believe I could keep the club up. We have gone a little bit further than I thought we would but there’s no way we were getting relegated.

“My hard work starts now,” added Elliott. “I need to be 100 per cent sure in terms of what I want to recruit and what I want to keep because it’s so important.”
