Conor Marshall knows that a derby day victory over Gainsborough Trinity would ‘mean everything’ to Boston United.

The 19-year-old defender was brought up in nearby Skegness, and says he is fully aware of how much an all-Lincolnshire clash means to both sides.

“We don’t need to be told to get up for a game like this,” the ex-Grimsby Town man told The Standard.

“It means everything to the club and the fans.

“We look forward to every derby game. There’s a good atmosphere and that gets you going.”

Last season, Marshall watched from the stands as Trinity left York Street with a 2-1 victory.

It was the only league game he missed last season following his switch from the Mariners.

And after missing out - rested and replaced by Lee Canoville - he is desperate to make his mark at the weekend.

Marshall added: “I definitely want to be involved.

“It was frustrating to watch. I want to be involved and I want to help the side win.”

The Blues had the last laugh last season, but United defeated their rivals twice at the Northolme, 3-1 inthe away league fixture and 2-1 in in the Lincs Senior Shield.

Ex-Pilgrims Dominic Roma, Jamie Yates, Shane Clarke and John Williams are currently on the books of Trinity.

United’s Ian Ross had a brief stint with Gainsborough.

Kick off at York Street on Saturday is 3pm.
