Boston United boss Canoville wants to go out with a bang

LEE Canoville wants to finish his time at York Street with victory over Guiseley... but he is adamant it’s nothing personal.

The joint-manager will end his spell at the Jakemans Stadium on Saturday (KO 3pm).

And he wants to go out with a bang, by claiming three points against his old foes.

Over the past two seasons, the Lions have brought the departing boss heartbreak, pipping United to the UniBond Premier title and knocking them out of the Blue Square Bet North play-offs on penalties.

Canoville is now desperate to avenge those two moments, but says it’s purely business.

“Whether we play Eastwood or Guiseley, we want to win,” he said.

“We want to win every game.

“It’s about us being strong and resilient.” Despite United being stuck in mid-table, with Saturday’s outcome having little bearing on their campaign, Canoville is adamant that victory is on every player’s mind.

He added: “It’s better to play these teams (near the top) than a game where nothing’s going on at this stage,” he added.

Canoville’s sentiments were shared by midfielder Ryan Semple, who shared his boss’ hurt after defeats to the Lions.

He said: “We’ve had some great battles over the years.

“We need to win a game, on a high for ourselves, the players and managers and club as a whole.”

Marc Newsham was on target for United in Guiseley earlier this season, but the hosts claimed the points with a 2-1 victory.
