Boston United are driven by the fear of repeating last season’s heartbreak, says Rene Steer

Rene Steer says that Boston United are being driven to succeed after being last season’s nearly men.

The Pilgrims went into the final day of last season with an outside chance of snatching the only up-for-grabs play-off spot - knowing that victory at Worcester City, coupled with Gloucester beating Guiseley, would see them sneak in on goal difference.

However, Steer claims that losing 3-0 at Aggborough as the Lions got their claws into the Tigers still haunts members of this squad.

“It wasn’t a nice feeling at all,” the left back said.

“We came so close to getting there, after going to the last day of the season.

“Most of the boys in the changing room remember that and it makes us want to do it even more this year.

“I don’t have any other ambition but to finish in those play-off places.

“Hopefully, then we can go even further.”
