Boston Town manager Nathan Collins has decided to stand down after suffering a back injury.

Collins took over at Tattershall Road in November and after turning around the Poachers’ fortunes last season to finish 14th had so far led them to seven points from their opening six games of the UCL Premier Division season.

The Grimsby-based boss said: “It’s with a really heavy heart that I have left my job as Boston Town FC manager.

“I have damaged discs in my back and I’m unable to drive any distance and therefore wouldn’t be able to give the club or my players the commitment they deserve.

“I would like to thank everybody at the club for their help and support during the last 10 months and I’m sure the club will go from strength to strength with the quality young squad and the people behind the scenes.

“I would like to say a special thank you to the chairman who I have so much respect for and has been a joy to work for.”
