Zak Mills believes that the competition for places in Boston United’s defence could be a major catalyst in the Pilgrims’ hopes of gaining promotion.

With Carl Piergianni, Scott Garner, Duran Reynolds, Stefan Galinski, Conor Marshall, Rene Steer and Connor Smythe all available to play in defence, right back Mills knows everyone has a fight on their hands for a regular place in the team.

But he believes all the squad members at the club is ready to rise to the challenge.

“We’ve got a really good back four, there’s six or seven defenders here and all of them are good enough to start,” Mills said.

“It’s a very solid back four. But we’re a big happy family and there’s a good team spirit here.

“As long as we start well I think we can get promotion.”

After a troubled time with cash-strapped Histon last season, Mills says he is looking forward to what he believes will be a more ‘stable’ campaign at the Jakemans Stadium.

And after signing his one-year deal with the club, he has started setting himself targets for the upcoming Conference North challenge.

“Hopefully, we can keep as many clean sheets as possible, but I’d like to chip in with a goal or two,” he added.

“I got five goals last season and hopefully I can get forward and score a few more.”
