Daryl Clare has joined the management team at Boston Town.

“We’re delighted to have him on board,” said Poachers manager Nathan Collins, after Clare agreed to become a player-coach last week.

Thirty-five-year-old Clare joined the Poachers as a player three months ago, and has previous managerial experience with Northern Counties League Division One side Louth Town.

After resigning as the White Wolves boss he joined the Tattershall Road side in a playing capacity.

But Collins has been impressed with his leadership on the pitch, as well as coaching drills he has put the club’s strikers through during training sessions.

Clare - who was the Conference’s leading scorer in 2002, when he helped Boston United win promotion to the Football League - will now work alongside boss Collins and his number two Andy Liddle.

Clare netted twice as Town won 4-0 at Stewarts & Lloyds Corby last Tuesday night.

Lori Borbely and Sam Loughran were also on target.

On Saturday the Poachers won 3-1 at Harborough Town, thanks to Lori Borbely’s fifth-minute strike and Lee Wattam’s brace.

Collins’ side will return to action on Saturday, hosting Newport Pagnell Town.

The Swans and the Poachers played out a goalless draw at Willemn Road back in December.

Kick off is at 3pm.
