Graham Drury says he won’t be bringing in any new faces ahead of Saturday’s clash at Altrincham.

The new Boston United boss will take charge of the Pilgrims for the first time at Moss Lane (KO 3pm).

The new manager is famed for his contacts in the non-league game.

However, he believes every player at the club deserves a clean slate and the chance to impress him.

He told The Standard: “I am going to be loyal to the lads here.

“I’ll have a look over them and see what their strengths and weaknesses are.

“You’ve got to have confidence in these boys, and if they respond in the right manner we might not have to bring people in.”

Confidence is the one thing Boston need if they are to get a result against the Robins.

Altrincham have twice left York Street with victories this season, winning 3-1 in the FA Cup and 3-2 in the Blue Square Bet North.

They also hammered United 6-1 at Moss Lane last season.

Drury took training for the first time on Tuesday.

He guided the team through a free play session so he could ‘cast my eye over the players to see what their touch and movement is like.’

Tonight’s training will see number two Paul Holden implement his game plan for Saturday.

“It will be a difficult first game, its obviously trial and error,” Drury admitted.

“It can go one of two ways.

“Hopefully, we can put out stamp on it in the first two games and go from there.”
