Ryan Qualter says the Boston United players thrive on support from the terraces, and it’s time for the squad and fans to begin making some big noises in the National League North.
The defender has given the thumbs up to the Pilgrims support, and believes that everyone should pull together as United prepare to launch a bid for promotion.
“You saw at Salford, they sang for 90 minutes and you heard them over the home fans,” Qualter said, discussing the buzz he gets from the crowd.
“Going into games like that, it gives you that bit of extra confidence and edge.
“I don’t think we’ve been as good at home as we should’ve been with that, making the most of it.
“There’s 1,000 in the stadium and it’s so loud and it spurs you on.
“Sometimes it can work the other way and you hear people getting on your back. But you have to stop that by doing better.”
Qualter joined the club in December as they found themselves in a relegation scrap, paying his part as United climbed the table, finally missing out on a top-seven spot on the final day of the campaign.
“The gaffer’s come in and built a new team, to finish where we did was a big achievement,”he said.
“But at the end of the day, it’s still frustrating that we didn’t give ourselves a better chance on the final day.
“We want to do better next year. I think a few signings in the summer and I don’t see why we can’t be play-offs at least next year.”
