New assistant boss for Boston Town

BOSTON Town’s joint managers have appointed Leigh Taylor as assistant boss to be a ‘stronger link’ between them and the players.

Ian Dunn and Matt Hocking, who joined after a successful stint in charge of Pinchbeck, have added Taylor to their team.

The 31-year-old came through the ranks at Boston United and played for the Poachers between 2005 and 2008. He also had stints with Spalding, Holbeach and Bourne.

Dunn said: “He has experience of playing at this level and higher and has a great knowledge of the game.

“He’s excited to be involved and we’re looking forward to working with him.”

Dunn added: “We needed someone else as a presence on the sidelines if Matt and I happened to be on the pitch at the same time.

“He will help provide a stronger link between us and the players and we feel Leigh is perfect for that role.”

Town’s friendly against Fakenham on Tuesday was cancelled because of a waterlogged pitch.

The Poachers are hoping to start their pre-season with a home match against Lincoln Moorlands on Saturday.
