Graham Drury has been unveiled as the new Boston United manager.

The 41-year-old has been in the dug out at Stamford this season.

But he was boss at Blue Square Bet North Corby Town last season.

During that tenure he managed Boston striker Mark Jones.

He was also the man who brought ex-United manager Jason Lee to the Steelmen as a player.

Pilgrims manager David Newton said: “We received in excess of 30 applicants for the vacant manager’s position and after a long and thorough selection process, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Graham Drury as first team manager of Boston United.

“Graham was selected from a shortlist of six potential managers and was the candidate that closely matched the criteria set by the board.

“He has a proven track record, his contacts are second-to-none and he is meticulous in his preparation for matches.

“He is also a motivator and is young, very ambitious and demonstrated his desire to not only manage Boston United, but that his aspirations matched those of the board.

“I would like to thank all those that applied and attended interviews and I wish them all the very best for the future.

“We know Graham Drury will give 100 percent to Boston United and we ask all of our fans to unite behind him as he tries to bring the success on the pitch that we all desire.”

Drury will be assisted by head coach Paul Holden and conditioning coach Dean West,.

West has had two spells with the club as a player, following stints in 1992-1993 and 2004-2005, which culminated in seven goals in 35 appearances for United.

Supporters will have their first opportunity to meet the new management team in The Pilgrim Lounge on Monday evening.

Doors open at 7pm — with Drury, Holden and West appearing on-stage alongside the United directors from 7.30pm.
