Dennis Greene is a firm believer that it takes time to build a successful squad.

The Boston United manager marked his 100th game in charge of the club with a 1-0 victory at Gloucester City - keeping the Pilgrims within touching distance of the play-offs.

Of the squad at his disposal on Saturday, just Marc Newsham remains from the squad he inherited upon arriving at the club two years ago.

Sam Vince was on United’s books as a youth teamer at the time, but Greene promoted him to the first team for the final match of that season, the 3-1 county cup victory at Gainsborough.

And now Greene had put his own stamp on the team he believes the good times are around the corner.

“You’ve always got to build your own team,” he said.

“That never happens overnight, it’s taken me two years to get where we are now.

“But everyone at the football club can see where we are now.

“That’s not an easy thing to do, to rebuild a whole team.

“But we’ve done that and we’re now in a good position.”
