Lori Borbely has hinted that he may be stepping down from his managerial duties at Boston Town.

Borbely began the campaign as a player and director at the DWB Stadium.

But after Dan Barrett resigned as manager, the Romanian stepped into the role for the final 14 contests.

Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Cogenhoe United, which saw Alex Beck net a late consolation for Boston, brought an end to the Poachers’ season.

Although Borbely is unsure exactly what the future holds, the 33-year-old says he wants to keep on playing for as long as he can.

He told The Standard: “I’m not sure how things will pan out, it’s too early to say.

“But I’m sure you will see me on the pitch more than in the dug-out next season.

“I’ve still got time to be a full-time manager, but time goes quickly and I want to play while I still can.”

Town currently sit in 12th in the UCL Premier, but if Desborough claim four points from their final two matches, the Poachers will drop down a position.

This season has seen Town operate under three different managers, with both Nathan Collins and Barrett resigning from the post.

Now Borbely hopes the club can look forward to a period of stability.

He added: “It’s been another transitional season for us.

“Different managers have different ideas about players and how they want to do things.

“I hope the club can look forward to a good season next year.

“It needs to keep moving forward.

“But I appreciate everyone who has supported me, those players who have played for me and helped me out or answered my calls.

“I’m very grateful to them.”
