Don Donovan, who led Boston United to successive league titles in the 1960s, has died aged 83.

The player-boss was in charge of title winning sides between 1966 and 1968.

Don was a former Republic of Ireland international and Everton and Grimsby Town player and had returned to The Jakemans Stadium in March 2011 as the club’s United Legend guest against Alfreton Town.

A club spokesman said: “The thoughts of Boston United are with the Donovan family at this sad time.”
