Jamie McGhee says it is time to start ‘repaying the faith’ Boston United have shown in him.
The winger hasn’t made an appearance for the club since the 2-0 victory over Gloucester City on September 20, after being sidelined with tendonitis of the knee.
But instead of cutting their losses and releasing the non-contract player, the Pilgrims have stuck by their man - something which has struck a chord with the attacker.
“I’ve got a lot of praise for the gaffer for sticking by me,” said McGhee, who returned to the match day squad for the first time in 11 contests on Saturday.
“With me being non-contract it would have been very easy for him to make a decision and get rid of me.
“Now I have to repay the faith. Hopefully, once I get fit again I can get back to where I was and make an impact.”
Although McGhee didn’t get any game time during the 1-1 draw at Leamington, just being involved again added a spring to his step.
“It got me down, I must admit,” he added.
“But I felt like a kid in a sweet shop again. To be with the boys again, just on the bench, was a great feeling.
“I’m just pleased to be back in the mix.
“Now I need match fitness. It’s massive at this level.
“When the time’s right and we’re 3-0 up in a game or something I’ll be desperate to be getting some minutes.”
