Ben Fairclough says he has never considered quitting Boston United.
The striker started 35 of the Pilgrims’ 51 competitive matches last season, but it has been a different story this campaign, with the striker making just three starts to date.
Fairclough also joined Grantham Town on a month’s loan in a bid to keep up his match fitness.
But instead of getting a taste for elsewhere, his spell with the Gingerbreads only strengthened Fairclough’s bond with York Street.
He said: “I enjoyed playing, but it just showed me what a good club Boston is, and how much I want to play here.
“I’ve had a long time out of the team. But that’s part and parcel of football, I want to play at Boston.”
Fairclough admits that his time on the sidelines has been tough.
But he hopes his wonder strike in the 3-3 draw at Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday will force him firmly back into Dennis Greene’s plans.
“You’ve got to keep focused and do the right things,” he added.
