Kyle Dixon believes that he can begin to play the best football of his career - now the pressure is off.

The midfielder returned to the Jakemans Stadium - where he has enjoyed two previous loan spells - last week after his Notts County contract was terminated.

And now that his future is secured, the 20-year-old, who has signed a contract with the Pilgrims until the end of next season, says that he can now concentrate solely on his game, rather than constantly trying to impress two managers.

“I felt a lot of pressure to do well at Boston,” said Dixon.

“Not just because I wanted to do well for the team, but because there was extra pressure with Notts.

“I felt like I had to exceed their expectations to show I could do a job for the club.”

But now Dixon is a Pilgrim he says his sole focus is to help United climb the league table.

“Boston’s the only club I wanted to join, I really enjoy it here,” he told The Standard.

“The manager’s shown faith in me by offering me a contract until the end of next season, he didn’t have to do that.

“Now I want to help this club get to the highest level possible.”
