Boston United chairman David Newton has called on the club’s fans to come out in force and support the club for their final four home league matches of the Blue Square Bet North campaign.

The arrival of manager Dennis Greene has seen a turn in fortunes, with the club winning three straight matches without conceding a goal.

Newton said: “I am aware that once again we have not delivered the performances on the pitch that we had hoped which, together with the economic climate, has hit the gates this season.

“This has affected overall income and the year-on-year financial improvement is not likely to be achieved again this season.

“Since appointing Dennis, things have really turned around on the pitch with three wins out of three.

“The lads have put in three great performances, scoring nine goals and keeping three clean sheets.

“I ask as many fans as possible to come to The Jakemans Stadium to support Dennis and the team as we try to finish as high as possible and start to plan for next season.

“The additional income would be invaluable to us as we reach the part of the season where cashflow is always difficult.”

This will be followed by home matches against Bishop’s Stortford (April 1), FC Halifax (April 13) and Brackley Town (April 27).

And as an additional incentive, the chairman is cutting the price of a pint in the club bar as well.

“We will also be having a happy hour in The Pilgrim Lounge between 1pm and 2pm ahead of each Saturday game, where you can enjoy a Pilgrim pie and a pint for only £3.95,” he added.

“Let’s try to get over 1,000 at the last four home games which will help build momentum for next season.”
