Leading goalscorer Marc Newsham has pledged his future to Boston United.

The striker - who has scored 26 times this campaign - has seen plenty of his old Pilgrims teammates leave the club recently.

With Gareth Jelleyman exiting York Street last week, Newsham, Spencer Weir-Daley and Dan Haystead are the only three United players remaining from the squad which reached the play-off semi-finals two seasons ago - and the other two have both has spells away from Boston.

However, Newsham - the only man to have featured in every match this campaign - doesn’t want to follow his pals out of the Jakemans Stadium.

When asked if he sees his future at United, he answered: “Yeah, yeah. It doesn’t change anything for me.

“Jells has left. He was a great lad and always consistent, so good luck to him.

“The lads who have come in are good lads.

“There’s still banter flying around. They’ve all done pretty well and we all get on fine.”

Newsham confirmed that he hasn’t spoken to manager Graham Drury about extending his contract beyond the end of the season, but hinted he would be willing to stay on.

He told The Standard: “The gaffer’s not spoken to me about it because the most important thing is the games left this season. Next sesason takes care of itself.”
