Trophies, then goals! That is Boston United leading scorer Marc Newsham’s aim

Leading scorer Marc Newsham believes team glory is more important than personal accolades at Boston United.

The forward pledged his future to the Pilgrims on Saturday evening - signing a deal for next season after firing home his 29th goal of the campaign during the 2-1 defeat to FC Halifax Town.

It will be his fifth term with the club.

Newsham, who says he would like his long-term future to be at York Street, has now netted 85 goals in 178 appearances for United.

He is now 96 shy of the 181 goals all-time leading scorer Chris Cook has to his name for Boston.

But Newsham says that is not one title he is focusing on.

“You don’t look at records like that,” he told The Standard.

“I’m on 85 now and I just want to get as many as I can.

“I want to score as many goals as I can and go into every game believing I can score, although sometimes it doesn’t happen.

“The goals are good but you want to win games.

“The most important thing for me is that we can be challenging for a title again next season.”

Newsham, along with Spencer Weir-Daley and Ian Ross, signed deals on Saturday.

Chairman David Newton has confirmed that season ticket and matchday admission prices have been frozen for the 2013-2014 campaign.
