Pilgrims defender Peter Bore is happy to see Conor Marshall excelling in the heart of midfield.

The two Boston United players first became friends during their time with Grimsby Town, even holidaying together.

But when Bore arrived at York Street in the summer, many believed he and Marshall would be competing for the right back slot.

However, manager Dennis Greene has opted to give Marshall the job of ballwinner in the heart of the park since the Skrill North season kicked off.

“I was at Grimsby when Conor was in the youth team,” Bore told The Standard.

“He was a good player then when he got his pro contract.I met up with him this time and I’ve been very impressed with him.”

Bore can appreciate Marshall’s talent as a utility man, previously showing his versatlity playing in attack for the Mariners.

He added: “In pre-season he played in quite a few positions and he’s done very well.

“He keeps things simple.

“He might not always be the highlight on the pitch, but he breaks it down well.”
