Boston United are today launching their search for a new manager.

Following Dennis Greene’s departure last night, chairman David Newton says he will be keen to hear from any interested parties... but he made it clear he wants to get the right person for the job.

“We don’t have anybody lined up for the job,” said Newton.

“We hoped this situation wasn’t going to arise.

“It has, so we will begin the process of looking for a new manager.

“We want somebody who can take us forward like Dennis did, we certainly want the best man for the job.”

Greene’s assistant Martyn Bunce will take charge of team affairs tonight as Boston United travel to Witton Albion for third FA Trophy third qualifying round contest (KO 7.45pm).

Pilgrims fans have already taken to social media to offer suggestions of who they want to fill the vacant seat in the dug-out.

Bridlington Town manager Curtis Woodhouse and former Pilgrims boss Rob Scott have been popular names.

Also mentioned are former club defender Matt Hocking, while some fans would like Bunce - a popular figure with the playing staff - to carry on.
