Pilgrims new boy Indy Aujla can’t wait to make his competitive York Street debut.

The midfielder impressed Boston United boss Dennis Greene while on trial in pre-season, until an injury and the opportunity to train with League One Brentford saw the player and club move in opposite directions.

However, Aujla finally made his first competitive Boston appearance during last weekend’s 4-0 FA Cup victory at Stafford Rangers.

And now he is looking forward to strutting his stuff in front of the home support at the Jakemans Stadium.

“I am absolutely looking forward to it. I’ve heard the atmosphere’s pretty decent,” said Aujla, who turned out twice in warm-up matches this summer.

“I played against Mansfield in pre-season and it was a decent turnout, but I think I’m expecting a few more fans there.

“It’s a lovely ground as well.”

Aujla has been given a little taste of the United support, after witnessing them preparing for the Stafford match.

And he is eagerly awaiting the noise they will produce this afternoon.

“Even two-or-thre hours before the fans were in full force. It was great to see,” he said.

Having played and trained with the Pilgrims squad in pre-season has made Aujla’s arrival even more comfortable, as he already knows the majority of his teammates and how the side shapes up.

He added: “It was nice and easy, the lads are all brilliant here.

“They’re all welcoming, even the manager.”

Aujla could be in line to make his home debut today as the Pilgrims host Barrow in Skrill North action (KO 3pm).

Marc Newsham and Scott Garner are expected to be available following injuries, while the club is also hoping Conor Marshall and Peter Bore will overcome knocks.
