Midfielder Gary Mills wants to complete a hat-trick of promotions to the Conference National after joining Boston United this week.

After playing his part to help guide both Kettering Town and Nuneaton Town up from the Blue Square Bet North in recent years, he wants to make it third-time lucky with the Pilgrims.

The 31-year-old signed for United on Sunday, after leaving Lincoln City in March.

And he has no worries about dropping down a level.

He said: “Boston’s a massive club at this level, so it wasn’t a tough decision to drop down a league.

“The Conference North is a good standard and this club wants to be in the Conference Premier.

“I played at this level with Kettering and we went straight back up.

“I dropped down to join Nuneaton and we won the play-offs.

“Hopefully, I can do it a third time.”

Mills has also turned out for Mansfield Town, Rushden and Diamonds, Stevenage Borough and Tamworth among other clubs over the years.

He has also won the Conference and League Two titles with Rushden, as well as triumphing in the FA Trophy with Stevenage.

Boston boss Dennis Greene said: “We are delighted to sign Gary, who is a player possessing plenty of quality and experience.

“He is a valuable addition.”
