STAND-in Boston Town boss Lori Borbely has ruled himself out of the running for the full-time job - despite beginning his managerial career with a victory.

Borbely - who is also a player and club director - guided the Poachers to a 3-2 UCL Premier victory at Thrapston on Saturday, even scoring the opening goal himself.

“It’s a bit early for me (to become a manager),” said Borbely, who took charge after Martyn Lakin resigned as boss last week.

“I’m happy with my roles at the club right now and I’m doing as much as I can to help Boston Town.

“I was there (as manager) as I was one of the oldest in the dressing room.

“But I’m not ready for that yet. The club is looking for the right person and they’ve had interest from people with experience.”

Chairman Mick Vines has said he will not be appointing a new manager until after Christmas, but Borbely is expected to remain as stand-in gaffer for the Boxing day visit of Sleaford Town, maybe even the New Year’s Eve arrival of Thrapston.

Sleaford go into the festive derby on the back of a record nine consecutive defeats.

However, Borbely says he does not want to take the contest lightly.

“Derby games are different and Sleaford will always be a difficult side to play,” he added.

“In a game like that there will be tough challenges and we have to make sure we do things the right way.”

Former Boston United player Andrew Stanhope was dismissed as Spalding United boss last week and has been one of the names linked with the vacant Tattershall Road position.
