New signing Jordan Smith arrived at York Street with his sights set on one thing - earning Boston United a top-five finish.

The 24-year-old became Graham Drury’s first signing for the Pilgrims.

And after making his debut in the Boxing Day draw with his old club Corby Town, Smith expects big things from his return to the Blue Square Bet North.

“Having a look at the league, we’re sitting in mid-table,” he told The Standard.

“But if you win a good couple of games on the bounce you could be right back up there in the play-offs - and that’s where you want to be.”

Smith joined United from Ilkeston, but has previously played under Drury at both Corby and Stamford.

And he reckons the new boss is the right fit for Boston.

He added: “He’s very vigilant and he loves the game

“From the first thing in the morning when he wakes up to the last thing at night, he will always try his best for his football club.

“He will always do his best for me and the team, so I think he’s a good asset to Boston United.”

And discussing his transfer from Ilkeston, the striker added: “Seeing the fans and set-up it looks like a real good place to be.

“Hopefully here, things will go well.

“I had the chance to come here and I couldn’t turn it down.

“It’s a great move for me and hopefully a great move for the club as well.”
