Jake Hall is happy to go those extra miles if it means he can forge a career at Boston United.
The 23-year-old midfielder impressed on his debut - Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Barrow - as a second-half substitute.
And after making his mark as an energetic box-to-box midfielder, Hall told The Standard he has no qualms about making the five-hour round trip to home games.
“It’s good club here, I like it,” said Londoner Hall, who lives in the shadow of Canary Wharf.
“I like the place and I like the ground. Hopefully, I can do well here.
“I got a call from my agent asking if I wanted to come down here, and I jumped at the chance.”
Hall has previously been on the books of Skrill South Boreham Wood, but United boss Dennis Greene spotted him playing in development matches for Luton Town.
Now Hall is hoping to impose his style in midfield.
“You’ve got to get stuck in and get the team going,” he said.
“I’m an all-round midfielder. I don’t mind doing the tackling and the niggly stuff, but I also like to get in the box as well.”
