Ricky Miller has set his sights on 
finishing the 
season as Boston 
United’s leading scorer.

The 25-year-old scored his third hat-trick of the season as the Pilgrims came from behind to snatch a 
dramatic 4-4 draw at Barrow on 
Saturday.

That treble, which also came on his 50th appearance for the club, took his tally to 23, two more than strike partner Marc Newsham.

When asked whether he wants to complete the Skrill North campaign as United’s top marksman, Miller said: “Of course. Strikers are judged on goals, rightly or wrongly.”

However, the forward was quick to switch the subject to United’s push for promotion, which he believes is his major goal.

He continued: “Newsh has been doing the business week-in, week-out and he’s one of the best players Boston have ever had.

“Hopefully, we can move forward and onwards together.

“We’re all in it together and we’ve still got a job to finish.”

Miller’s previous hat-tricks this campaign both came in January, during victories against Workington (5-3) and Solihull Moors (4-1).

He also netted a treble during a previous spell with the Pilgrims at the end of the 2008-09 campaign, when United beat Cammell Laird 5-0.

Boston return to league action on Saturday as they host Gloucester City.

Kick off is at 3pm.
