Carl Piergianni believes his relegation with Corby Town will be the making of him as a player.
The defender, who joined Boston United on Friday, says he will channel the lessons learned from his disappointing Blue Square Bet North campaign to spur him on next season.
“I definitely never want to feel the way I felt on the last day of the season,” said the 21-year-old, who was part of the Steelmen side which dropped out of the division on the final day of the season, by the virtue of goal difference.
“I learned a lot from that and it’s made me determined never to go through that again.
“I want to be part of a winning side - picking up trophies and winning promotions.”
And that is why the centre back opted to join the Pilgrims when manager Dennis Greene came calling.
Seeing potential within the squad, he said: “I played in the two games against Boston last season.
“Especially in the match at Boston, they proved themselves to be a very good footballing side with good players.
“Hopefully, we can all go on to have a good season together.”
