New Boston United signing Callum Chippendale says he is joining a ‘class club’.

The 19-year-old admits that he was convinced to join the Jakemans Stadium side after being impressed by their attacking style of play.

“The move came about originally through my agent,” said the ex-Barnsley attacker, who played for the Pilgrims’ National League North rivals Bradford Park Avenue last season.

“He told me Boston were interested and I was interested as I know it’s a class club with a lot of fans. The atmosphere’s great there.

“Martin Drury was my old manager at Park Avenue and he’s now part of the management team, so I spoke to him about the club and he told me it’s a good place.

“I’ve played Boston twice this season and I like the way the gaffer’s got the team playing attacking football.

“That’s what I want to play. It suits me down to a tee.

“I was thrilled that Boston wanted me.”

Chippendale played in home and away defeats against the Pilgrims last season, and believes he knows a litle about what is expected of players at the Lincolnshire club.

Impressed by the club’s willingness to try to outscore opponents and utilise wingers as part of a front three, he added: “That was one of the key things, I played them twice and they were a great side, playing good attacking football.

“I’m an attacking, positive player. I can play out wide or as a number 10.

“When I play out wide I like to get lots of crosses and shots in.

“The way Boston play suits me to a tee, and I think it will get even more out of me.”
