Jake Hall believes Boston United’s squad are good enough to do the business in the Skrill Premier.

On Saturday the Pilgrims knocked Southport out of the FA Trophy, as goals from Marc Newsham and Carl Piergianni cancelled out Nathan Ellington’s opener.

That victory - against a Skrill Premier side, one division higher than Boston in the footballing ladder - stretched United’s unbeaten run to five matches.

And as confidence in the Pilgrims camp is sky high, Hall believes his teammates have proved they are good enough to cut it at the next level.

“If we get into that league I think we could cope easily,” Hall said.

“We did a job. I 100 per cent think we could do it again.

“I really feel strongly about this team, the lads all get on and there’s a unity here.”

Hall believes the secret to United’s success is down to adaptability in a squad which is just as comfortable playing 4-3-3 or 3-5-2, depending on Dennis Greene’s tactics.

“We all get on and we all understand how each other plays,” Hall added.

“We’ve played in a lot of different formations and showed that we can play however the manager tells us to play. It’s exciting stuff. We don’t care who we’ve got next, we just want to show what we can do.”

Manager Greene agrees with his midfielder’s sentiments, and was quick to praise his side’s attitude as he tinkers with the formation and line-up.

He told The Standard: “They’ve got belief. They don’t want to lose football matches.

“We had a group like that at St Neots and we won a couple of championships. This group here reminds me of them.

“If someone gets left out they dont gripe and moan, they get on with it.”
