Stefan Galinski believes he is picking up the tips to help him become a key figure for Boston United in the future.
The 20-year-old central defender joined the Pilgrims in the summer, but has found himself behind both Scott Garner and Carl Piergianni in the pecking order.
However, Galinski sees every match a chance to improve himself, whether he’s playing or observing.
“I’ll always give my best for the club and the people who run it,” the former Derby County trainee told The Standard.
“I’ve got no regrets at all. The two lads who are playing with me, I look up to both of them.
“I feel I learn from them in every game, whether it’s heading, positioning or tackling.
“Next season maybe I can be in their boots. Perhaps then there could be someone on the bench wanting to come on for me.”
The former Polish youth international has made 16 starts and 13 appearances from the bench so far this campaign, sometimes utilised as a full back or midfielder.
Although Galinski admits he would rather be playing, he says he cannot argue with manager Dennis Greene’s team selections.
“Garns and Pidge have both made 30-odd appearances each for the club this season and you can count on one hand the number of bad performances between them,” he added.
“So you can’t begrudge them starting and you can’t begrudge the gaffer for picking them.
“You’ve just got to take it as it is. Circumstances change in football and I’ve got to wait for my chance.”
Galinski’s latest chance could well be this weekend at Workington (KO 3pm) as Piergianni faces a one-match suspension for his red card at Harrogate.
