GARY Bull has set his sights on scoring his 200th Boston Town goal - after new manager Phil Jones brought him back to Tattershall Road.

The 45-year-old was released by former boss Martyn Lakin earlier this campaign, two goals shy of his double century.

But Bull, who is Town’s all-time leading scorer, was brought back into the fold by Jones, who will stand in as manager until the end of the campaign.

And he made an instant impact, grabbing his 199th club goal on New Year’s Eve, the winner against Thrapston.

But he was thwarted at reaching 200 two days later as Town won 3-0 at Northampton Spencer.

Former club captain Mark Foster has also returned to the club, after leaving for Lincoln Moorlands earlier this season, while defender Shaun Baker is the third familiar face to return.

Jones was promoted from the reserves after turning the second string’s fortunes around in the United Counties League Reserve Division Two.

Chairman Mick Vines says he is ‘delighted’ with the appointment.

The club’s decision on a permanent manager will now be put on hold until the summer.

Town travel to face Daventry in the UCL Premier tomorrow (Saturday).
