Today marks the one-year anniversary of Craig Elliott's first win as Boston United manager.

It was on December 2, 2017 that the Pilgrims beat York City 2-1, courtesy of goals from Jordan Keane and Ashley Hemmings.

Since then the Pilgrims boss has recorded a total of 22 wins, 12 at the Jakemans Stadium and 10 on the road.

Of those victories, 21 have come in the league and just one in knockout action, last month's 5-0 FA Trophy hammering of Ashton.

Elliott's biggest win was that success at Ashton, with Boston also recording four-goal winning margins at North Ferriby (5-1) and at home to Blyth Spartans (4-0).

Ten of Boston's wins under Elliott have seen the side keep clean sheets, George Willis accounting for nine of them and Jon Stewart one.

Eleven of those wins have been close with Boston winning by a one-goal margin.

A total of 57 goals have been scored by Boston in those wins, with 20 different players finding the back of the net, none of them own goals.

Goalscorers in Elliott wins: Ashley Hemmings 10, Reece Thompson 6, Brad Abbott 5, Kabongo Tshimanga 5, Nicky Walker 4, Max Wright 3, Gavin Allott 3, Jordan Keane 3, Nathan Arnold 3, Gregg Smith 2, Jonathan Wafula 2, Andre Johnson 2, Ahkeem Rose 2, Brad McGowan 1, Jay Rollins 1, Ben Middleton 1, Jake Beesley 1, Adam Marriott 1, Jordan Slew 1, Josh Hine 1.
