Ricky Miller has told the Boston United fans that his best is yet to come.

The 24-year-old striker marked his first match at Skrill North level by sweeping home the Pilgrims’ final goal in Saturday’s 4-1 victory at Stockport County.

But the forward - who scored six times in 12 matches during a stint at York Street back in 2009 - reckons he was far from his best.

“I was really nervous in the first half,” he admitted to The Standard.

“But getting the goal helped me. I just want to keep getting better and better now.

“I wasn’t on my best game, but I knew I’d get my chance in the end.”

Miller also took time out to praise the travelling support who, he says, spurred the team on at Edgeley Park at the weekend.

“To be honest, for the whole 90 minutes I could only hear them,” he added.

“It’s different class having them there. It was a big occasion but we played well.”

Miller arrived from Stamford in the summer, and quickly slipped back into his goalscoring ways, netting six of United’s 12 pre-season goals.
