Boston United boss Graham Drury says he will happily celebrate any goal scored against his former Club Corby Town today
The Pilgrims begin 2013 with a New Year’s Day visit to Blue Square Bet North rivals the Steelmen.
But despite the current trend for footballers and managers to attempt to play down their excitement if they score against a former employer, Drury’s having none of it.
He said: “I don’t care who I play against, I want to win.
“There won’t be any sentimental thoughts because it’s my old club, if we score against them I’ll celebrate as hard as any goal.
“If we win I’ll celebrate just as hard again.
“I look forward to every game and they can’t come round quickly enough.”
Drury’s first game as United boss was Boxing Day’s 1-1 draw with Corby, Marc Newsham scoring for the Pilgrims.
That was followed by Saturday’s 3-1 success over Oxford City.
Newsham was again on target, while ex-Steelmen forward Mark Jones bagged a brace.
After the contest, Jones revealed he had received a voicemail from Corby, attempting to bring him back to Steel Park.
But the Boston striker said he has no intentions of leaving York Street.
Attacker Jordan Smith and conditioning coach Dean West are also former Corby players now with United.
Kick off is 3pm.
