Chairman David Newton has apologised to the Boston United fans for a ‘thin’ season.

Addressing the supporters on Saturday, following the Pilgrims’ 4-3 defeat to Brackley Town, he thanked the crowd for standing by their team.

“It’s not the season we wanted or the season the players wanted, but we will work hard to turn that round and get it right,” he said.

“Thanks to the fans for sticking with us through thick and thin. Sadly it’s been thin this season.”

With just one win in their final seven matches - that being victory at relegated Hinckley - United finished the Blue Square Bet North campaign in 16th place, level on points with Colwyn Bay, who were looking like relegation candidates 10 days ago.

In fact, just four teams finished with a lower points total than Boston.

Newton admitted some of the reason for this was due to two mangerial sackings - Jason Lee, followed by Graham Drury - but believes Dennis Greene can now bring some stability back to the Jakemans Stadium.
