Liam Marrs enjoyed being the middle man on his Boston United return.

The 21-year-old made 13 appearances on loan from Sunderland last season, before a knee injury brought his canpaign to a premature end.

And after being released by the Black Cats, the free agent rejoined United on Friday.

The following day Dennis Greene named him in his starting line-up, but opted to reinvent the right back as a midfielder, a challenge the new signing enjoyed.

“I’ve never really played in midfield, I’ve always been a full back,” said Marrs, before delivering a big dose of self-deprication.

“I haven’t got the skill to play midfield, but I enjoyed it.

“At the end of the day I’ll play anywhere - if he puts me up front I’ll play up front.

“It’s just a different challenge - you just have to do your best.”

Marrs was happy to return to familiar surroundings and, despite Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Stalybridge Celtic being something of a damp squib, the new signing says he is determined to give the Pilgrims fans something to celebrate.

“There’s nothing better than hearing the fans cheering or making them happy - because that’s what they live for every week,” he added.
