It’s not grim up north! Steer happy to clock up the miles for Boston United

Rene Steer has no interest in playing football closer to home - after stating it’s far from grim up north.

The Boston United left back says he has shrugged off his initial travel sickness and is no-longer worried about the commute from his Wembley home for matches.

“I leave the house at 10am for home games, but I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t enjoy it or it wasn’t worth it,” said the former Arsenal trainee.

“The first two months were quite hard, but now I’m bedded in and it’s in my mindset to just get it done.

“It’s all in the head.”

Steer admitted that some clubs closer to home have tried to entice him away, but he’s adamant Boston - and the Vanarama North - is the right place to progress.

“Some people try to whisper in my ear and say it’s too far,” he added.

“But I played in the Conference South in front of crowds of 150 or 200 people.

“At places like Boston and Stockport you’re playing in front of crowds of more than 1,000 and that’s another uplift.

“Boston has a togetherness, it’s a family club where the players and fans are all together.

“If we win then everyone’s buzzing and it’s a good trip home.”
