Kaine Felix believes that being reunited with Dennis Greene can help him become a better player.
The 19-year-old first played under the Boston United boss at St Neots Town three years ago, and he believes that the manager’s easy-going style with the squad will help him express himself in the Conference North.
“I’ve played for Dennis. I was at St Neots when I was 16 and played there three years. I made my debut under him and he started me,” the winger explained.
“I scored in my first game that I started for Dennis.
I was without a club this pre-season and he told me to come along and see how I get on, see if I can impress him.
“There’s still a long way to go, but he’s a great manager.”
Felix says that Greene’s willingness to let his team play to their individual strengths will see him develop rapidly after he gets used to life at Conference North level.
He added: “I never feel like I’m playing under pressure.
“At my previous club sometimes it felt like I was playing with a hot potato.
“I’d get on the ball and give it away straight away - I didn’t get the chance to show what I could do or use my pace.
“I feel like I’ve got no pressure and I can play like when I was younger, playing with freedom.”
Joining a new club can often be daunting, but Felix - a pacy winger who can also play up front - added that he already feels at home with his new band of brothers.
“The boys are great and I feel like I’ve been here for years already,” he said.
“Training’s good and everyone gets on, it’s like we’re a big family of brothers.”
