It has been a tough season for Boston United , but there is light at the end of the tunnel after the Pilgrims pulled clear of relegation danger.

United are not completely out of the woods but having become drop zone regulars in the first half of the season, there is now talk of an unlikely tilt at the play-offs, which now go down to seventh place. Manager Craig Elliott, who succeeded Adam Murray in November, has guided the Pilgrims to five wins out of six and Pilgrims fans will be expecting another three points at National League North whipping boys North Ferriby on Saturday.

A string of new signings have help turn Boston’s fortunes around.

“We’ve been working hard with Craig,” said chairman David Newton. “We weren’t in the position we wanted to be in and we’ve worked hard to bring in players.

“The results have turned for us. He [Elliott] knows what he wants but understands we have constraints, like every club does, and we’re working together well.

“The first thing is to make sure we’re safe but it’s so tight. By putting some wins together, we’re now in mid-table and are looking up.

“It’s ridiculous how tight it is, both at the top and at the bottom.”
