He may have only played less than a half of football for the club, but Tom Hopper still sees himself as a Boston United player.
It was November 24, 2009 when the striker made history at 15 years of age, by becoming the youngest-ever player to turn out for the Pilgrims.
That 2-1 UniBond Cup win against Hucknall Town was his only appearance in amber and black, before his move to Championship side Leicester City.
“I was just 15 at the time, but I still count myself as a Boston player,” said Hopper, who still has ties to the club.
“Boston’s still my home town and I always want them to do well.
“I know Ben Milnes well from Leicester and know some of the younger lads like Jordan Nuttell and James Reed.
“So I’m always looking out for the scores.”
Hopper admits it’s too early in his career to think of one day returning to York Street, but he won’t rule anything out.
He added: “Boston can go from strength to strength and who knows?
“Hopefully, my career will go from strength to strength and we could meet up in the future?”
