Jay Rollins has no regrets about joining Boston United in the summer.

The youngster was snapped up by Dennis Greene after impressing on a trial, set up by chief scout Richard Boryszczuk.

On his arrival, Rollins - who had been turning out for Armthorpe Welfare - was touted by the United manager as a rough diamond and ‘one for the future’.

However, the rugged, no-nonsense and direct winger has made himself very much part of the Pilgrims’ squad this season, making 25 appearances and scoring four goals to date - two of those finishes coming in the past two matches.

And Rollins says he is glad he decided to try his luck with United in the summer.

“I’m glad I came here,” he told The Standard.

“I’m loving it at the minute, the lads are great, I’m doing well, I feel like I’m doing well.

“I’m getting better as a player as well and it’s good.”

Rollins will now be hoping to make an impact as the Pilgrims face a series of tough challenges which will push their National League North play-off hopes.

On Saturday, Boston travel to fellow promotion hopefuls AFC Fylde, looking to avenge their 3-0 home defeat from earlier in the season (KO 3pm).

This will be followed by another long away trip to the north west to face Chorley, the side which beat Boston on penalties in last season’s play-off semi-final.

Completing the hat-trick of tricky contests will be a home clash against another top-five side North Ferriby United.

The Villagers came from behind to beat the Pilgrims 4-3 north of the Humber earlier in the campaign.
