BOSTON Town have today revealed Ian Dunn and Matt Hocking as their new managerial team.

The pair join the Poachers from Pinchbeck United where Dunn was manager and Hocking was skipper as the team won the Peterborough Premier Division and Peterborough FA Senior Cup.

Both previously played for the Tattershall Road club and chairman Mick Vines said he is delighted to bring them back.

Mr Vines said: “They’re young, keen and ambitious and very excited about taking on this job. They’ve also got a lot of experience in football and we think things will really take off under them.”

Dunn, 31, scored seven goals in 23 appearance for Boston Town in 2002-03 and returned for a single appearance in 2011. His dad Brian played for both Boston United and Boston FC in the 1950s and 60s.

Central defender Hocking, 34, played more than 200 Football League games for Hull City, York City and Boston United.

He also played 48 games for Boston Town in 2009 and 2010, scoring one goal.

The Poachers finished the season under caretaker Phil Jones after Martyn Lakin resigned.

Holbeach United boss John Chand turned down the club, opting to remain loyal to Town’s United Counties League Premier Division rivals while ex-Poachers midfielder Nathan Collins had also been in the running at one stage.
