Assists feel better than goals, says Boston United winger Felix

Kaine Felix admits that chalking up another assist is just as satisfying as scoring a goal.

Boston United’s teenage winger is hitting a rich vein of form, and after teeing up Mark Jones’ opener in the 2-1 victory over Gainsborough on Saturday, he revealed that he loves playing his part for the team.

“Getting an assist means a lot more than getting a goal for me,” he said.

“We’ve scored and I feel good because I’ve made the goal.

“The lads support the goalscorer and then come to me and say ‘well done Kaine for your assist’ - I’m a winger so that’s what I’m about.”

Felix is putting his recent run in the team firmly down to hard work.

He says he is spurred on by the fear of losing his place in the team, following an up-and-down start to the season.

“I do a lot of stuff myself and try to better myself all the time,” he added.

“Because I know that if I have a bad game I’m out the side, and rightly so.

“There are fantastic players at this club and if I don’t perform I won’t be in the team.

“I want to get more consistency under my belt.”
