Pilgrims midfielder Kyle Dixon says it is about time he starts chipping in with more goals.

The playmaker’s close-range finish in the 3-1 victory at basement club Hyde last season was the only time the 20-year-old has scored for Boston United in 38 appearances.

And Dixon says that needs to change next season.

“I want to do well for the team, but I really want to score a lot more goals,” he explained.

“When I was in the Notts (County) youth team I was scoring goals for fun and I want to do more of that.

“I’ve only scored once for Boston, and that’s not good enough.

“Everybody loves scoring a goal.”

In order to improve his game, Dixon says he is now putting in the hours in his private time to make sure he doesn’t suffer any fitness issues next season.

After leaving Meadow Lane for the Jakemans Stadium, the midfielder admits he initially struggled to come to terms with part-time football.

“I was used to training every day, so it was a bit of a shock to me going part-time,” Dixon admitted.

“I think I struggled to get my fitness where I wanted it to be.

“But we’ll all work hard in the summer as we want to be up there challenging for the title next season.

“We don’t want to be involved the play-offs again.”
