Looking up! McGhee ‘excited’ about Boston United moving in the right direction

Winger Jamie McGhee believes that joining Boston United can help him fulfil his ambition of climbing back up the footballing ladder.

The 24-year-old joined the Pilgrims last week, making his debut during Saturday’s 4-1 against Solihull Moors.

And the wide man impressed with a full throttle late cameo, which saw two efforts come close to finding the net.

After beginning his career with Mansfield Town, making two appearances for the Stags in League Two, he has gone on to represent Corby Town and Grantham Town.

But now he has his sights set on moving on up.

He said: “I’ve played against Boston over the years and it’s always been a club I knew I’d like to play for.

“Of course, I’d like to play at the highest level possible and climb back up the footballing pyramid.

“I know this is a massive opportunity at a big club and hopefully I can improve the squad.

“Hopefully, I can do that with Boston. It’s a well-run club and it’s in a good position.”

McGhee admitted to being ‘excited’ when he learned that the Pilgrims had made a seven-day approach for him.

Talk of life at Boston from Grantham teammates such as Dan Haystead, Paul Lister and Kallum Smith, all former United players, only helped McGhee make up his mind to move.

And after training with the club for the first time last Tuesday, the player knew he had made the right decision.

“When you first arrive at a new club you don’t know what to expect,” McGhee added.

“But the lads were great to me and it gave me a really good impression of the club.”
