BOSTON United striker Mark Jones says he wants to go beyond manager Jason Lee’s expectations for him this season.

The striker - who joined from Blue Square Bet North rivals Corby Town earlier this summer - says he hasn’t set himself any targets ahead of his first campaign in the Pilgrims’ colours.

But manager Lee is known for handing out incentives to his front men, such as the 20 goals he demanded from striker Mark Newsham last season. He got 21.

“I haven’t set myself any targets,” Jones told The Standard.

“But if the manager sets me some then I’ll try to reach that and go further.

“It’s always a good time to score a goal and I’m sure Boston can do well this season.”
