Craig Elliott felt Boston United were good value for their opening victory under his stewardship on Saturday.

The Pilgrims overturned a half-time deficit to defeat York City 2-1 at The Jakemans Stadium and earn their first win, at the fifth time of asking, under Elliott’s management.

The former Shaw Lane supremo saw second half goals from Jordan Keane and Ashley Hemmings do the damage, following Adriano Moke’s stunning opener for the visitors on 19 minutes.

“It’s great for everybody at the club, including the players and everybody behind the scenes,” reflected Elliott.

“We showed great character. It was harsh on us to go 1-0 down, to a great strike, but we responded.

“It was a case of not being happy with a point, getting on the front foot and trying to get a good tempo into the game. I thought we had good chances and deserved it in the end.”
