Scott Garner is backing team spirit to bring Boston United success.

The Pilgrims are continuing to push for promotion to the Vanarama Premier.

But Garner believes that the all-for-one attitude at the Jakemans Stadium will bring glory back to United - either this season or next.

He said: “There’s no changing room like ours.

“It’s so lively and everyone gets on, we’re just chatting away and having a laugh.

“It’s like that on the pitch, you’re chatting away and enjoying playing with each other.

“When it comes down to it you do the right thing, but when we work we work.”

At 25, Leicester City trainee Garner (pictured) has had spells with Grimsby Town, Mansfield Town, Alfreton Town, Cambridge United and Lincoln City.

And he admits that he struggled to settle in some of those environments.

But he feels at home at Boston, and the captain believes that has only spurred him on to improve his game.

“Not many football clubs are like that. It’s enjoyable to be here,” he continued.

“People want to be here.

“It’s not the biggest budget, but they’re enjoying themselves.

“We’re one group and we all pull together.

“It’s like everything in life, you want to enjoy every day.

“You’re up for training as you’re looking forward to seeing the lads.

“You work hard for each other.”

United’s quest for a top-five finish sees them facing three final hurdles on consecutive Saturdays - away matches at Stalybridge Celtic and Solihull Moors, before completing the season at home to Leamington.

And Garner is determined to make the most of the rest of the season.
