Ross Durrant believes that York Street is the best place to cut his teeth.

The former Nottingham Forest and Ilkeston keeper says the professionalism at Boston United will only help young players like him develop into better footballers.

“I love it, its’ a great place to be a part of,” said Durrant.

“I don’t know what it was like before, I can’t talk about that, but it’s been very bright, professional - probably the most professional club I’ve seen at this level from my experience in terms of what we do on match days and how we train.

“I want to be a part of a professional environment, and if we can make it as professional as possible in a semi-pro environment then that’s only going to help us this season and going into next season.”

Since arriving in December, Durrant has been an ever-present, playing every minute of all 15 games under Adam Murray.

Durrant is now setting his sights on victory over Salford City at the Jakemans Stadium on Saturday.

The club - owned by Class of 92 members Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and billionnaire Peter Lim - are hoping for promotion this season.

City sit third in the National League North standings.

Durrant wasn’t a Boston player when United drew 3-3 at Salford in October.

Jay Rollins, Gregg Smith and a Richie Allen own goal accounted for United’s goals that day.

Kick off will be at 3pm.
