BOSTON Cricket Club’s three-year pursuit of bowler Elliot Wilson has paid off.

Not only have the club acquired the services of the former List A player, but Wilson - the most qualified coach in the county - has also been enlisted to run the club’s coaching programmes.

Wilson has played in the C&G Trophy for both Warwickshire and Lincolnshire will now turn his attention to the Lincolnshire ECB Premier League with Boston, when the season begins on April 23.

However, he will also run a new academy at the Rosebery Avenue Club, where he will give close tuition to 12 handpicked youngsters.

On top of this, Wilson will also work closely with the club’s junior and senior sections, helping players of all ages to improve their game.

“This is a fantastic coup for the club,” said captain Paul Timby.

“We’ve been chasing Elliot for three years and we’re glad he’s finally agreed to join us.”

Speaking of the club’s newly-founded academy, he added: “These are the young players we feel will be the core of the First XI for many years to come.

“We are not only looking forward to what Elliot can do on the field, but also for the club.

“It is part of a long-term plan and we are excited about the future.

Wilson - who is currently studying to become one of the sport’s few Level Four coaches in the world - will be involved with Boston CC’s links to Boston Grammar School, while other schools in the area are being invited to become involved.
