Boston United captain Gareth Jelleyman has pledged his future to the club - saying he wants to end his career at York Street.

The news will be greeted happily by many Pilgrims fans, with the popular defender admitting he can’t see himself ever pulling on another side’s shirt.

“I’d love to end my career here,” the former Wales under 21 international said.

“I can’t see myself anywhere else if I’m honest.”

Jelleyman knows the club better than any other squad member in the current dressing room.

The left back is curently in his third season with United.

He has also had two previous loan spells at York Street, competing in League Two.

And there’s just something about the Jakemans Stadium that keeps him wanting to come back for more.

“I love it here,” Jelleyman added.

“It’s the most I’ve enjoyed my football since I was starting my career, breaking into the Peterborough (United) team.

“There’s a great bunch of lads here and we’ve got such a strong team spirit.

“I always look forward to training and to playing games.”

But the club ambience is also something the former Mansfield Town and Barrow and player enjoys.

He continued: “It’s a great club to play for.

“It’s so friendly. It’s just great being here.”
