Adam Murray insists Boston United are a centre forward and a shot of confidence away from being one of the best sides in National League North.
Murray handed in his resignation following Saturday’s 3-2 defeat against Brackley and says his decision was made for the benefit of the club.
A statement released by the club revealed chairman David Newton had ‘reluctantly’ accepted his resignation and the search for a new manager was underway, with the closing date for applications on Friday.
Saturday’s home defeat left the Pilgrims second-bottom and was United’s fifth game without a win.
However, the departing Murray says he has every confidence the club can begin a sustained climb away from trouble.
“It is as basic as that,” said Murray. “This group is very, very close to being a good side. That was one of the most frustrating things about my decision.
“They need a shot of confidence and a centre forward, everything else is in place. They are desperate for a centre forward.
“At the moment the team is relying on a 35-year-old [Karl Hawley], a player who has had eight months out through injury [Gregg Smith] and a teenager who is our leading scorer [Kabongo Tshimanga].
“Once again on Saturday there was one goal between the teams and it has been like that so often this season. They just need a different voice and a new pair of eyes.”
