Competition suits Rollins ahead of upcoming campaign

Jay Rollins has welcomed Callum Chippendale’s arrival at Boston United.

Despite the former Bradford Park Avenue player offering competition for a wide berth, Rollins thinks having to battle for his position can only help the club.

“I don’t mind a bit of competition,” he told The Standard.

“I had that last season with Kaine (Felix), but it’s good competition.

“We all get on well and want to bring the best out in each other and do well for the team.”

Adding depth to the squad could be seen as an advantage for the Pilgrims after two consecutive years of defeats in the National League North play-off semi-finals.

“The club have finished in the play-offs twice in a row now and it hurts,” Rollins added.

“I was only here for one of them, but I know what it means to the lads.

“It’s made us all more determined to do it next time.

“We want to win promotion, definitely.

“But we don’t want to do it through the play-offs, we want to win the league and make sure we go up.”
