Boston United vice-chairman Neil Kempster believes Dennis Greene deserves his new contract, for turning the Pilgrims into genuine title contenders.

Greene took over the Pilgrims in March last year, following the sacking of previous boss Graham Drury.

And despite the team finishing in 16th spot last season, Boston are currently one of several teams challenging at the right end of the Skrill North.

Speaking after Greene signed his new two-year deal, Kempster said: “We have been thoroughly impressed by the work Dennis has done in turning the team into genuine promotion contenders from a side that finished near the bottom of the table last season.

“With any manager it is all about ensuring we are progressing in the right direction. Dennis is fully committed to the job and has applied himself very well to the role so far.

“As a board, we are keen to provide stability to the club which we believe is one of the keys to a successful team. This contract reflects that aim.”

Kempster added that Greene remains very much a part of the club’s long-term plan.

He continued: “Whether or not we are successful in achieving promotion this season, we believe Dennis is the man to lead us forward and giving him this new contract will allow him to start planning for next season and beyond.

“Our home form has been particularly pleasing this season.

“I would now urge the supporters to get behind Dennis and the team as they look to secure a play-off place during the remaining weeks of the season.”
