Dennis Greene has been handed a new two-year contract at Boston United.

The new deal means former Wycombe Wanderers striker Greene, 47, will remain at the club until the end of the 2015-16 season.

The club felt that they had to move to tie down their boss, after a campaign in which he turned the club into Skrill North promotion contenders.

Greene joined United in early March last year, following on from Graham Drury’s sacking.

And although United finished last season in 16th spot, their fortunes have changed drmatically this campaign.

United vice-chairman Neil Kempster told the Boston United website: “We have been thoroughly impressed by the work Dennis has done in turning the team into genuine promotion contenders from a side that finished near the bottom of the table last season.

“With any manager it is all about ensuring we are progressing in the right direction. Dennis is fully committed to the job and has applied himself very well to the role so far.

“As a board, we are keen to provide stability to the club which we believe is one of the keys to a successful team. This contract reflects that aim.”

Kempster added that Greene remains very much a part of the club’s long-term plan.

He continued: “Whether or not we are successful in achieving promotion this season, we believe Dennis is the man to lead us forward and giving him this new contract will allow him to start planning for next season and beyond.

“Our home form has been particularly pleasing this season and securing 11 home wins to date and scoring 44 goals in the process is testament to the attacking football on show under Dennis’ management.

“I would now urge the supporters to get behind Dennis and the team as they look to secure a play-off place during the remaining weeks of the season.”
