White wants to right some Boston United wrongs

ALAN White hopes Boston United can turn their form around – so he can right some wrongs.

The defender is back at York Street for his second spell, after turning out for the Pilgrims in League Two.

It was an 18-month period in which he played alongside the likes of current Boston bosses Jason Lee and Lee Canoville.

David Noble, Andy Kirk, Paul Ellender and Mark Greaves were along the other big-name players in that side.

But despite enjoying his time in amber and black, White still rues the fact that the club never fulfilled its potential.

“We had a good team and didn’t finish as well as we should have done,” White told The Standard

“I thoroughly enjoyed it and had a great time, but the squad we had should have achieved a lot more.”

White, who finished his first spell with the club by claiming the Player of the Year award, now hopes he can taste some success the second time around.

But firstly, Boston United have to put a run together after their poor start to the current campaign.

And that will mean overcoming Droylsden at the Jakemans Stadium on Saturday.

Like Boston, Droylsden have had a hit-and-miss start to the campaign.

But you cannot underestimate a side who, until late last season, looked likely to grab a play-off place.

The last time the two sides met, Boston earned a 2-0 victory.

Ryan Semple and Adam Boyes were on target in March, in an open contest where the visitors’ Dan Gardner saw red late on.

But the story at the Butchers Arms was a totally different matter, as the Bloods drew first blood last campaign.

The Pilgrims’ visit to Manchester saw them thumped 4-0, emphatically ending their club record run of 10 straight league clean sheets.

Victories over Guiseley, Nuneaton and Colwyn Bay have been highlights this term, while they also left Blyth Spartans with a comprehensive 3-1 victory.
