“We want to be champions!” Stefan Galinski thinks Boston United must aim high

Boston United are setting their sights on finishing next season as Skrill North champions, says defender Stefan Galinski.

The Pilgrims ended their 2013-14 campaign in sixth spot, just outside of the play-off places.

But Galinski believes that if manager Dennis Greene can keep the majority of his squad together, United have every right to plan for a serious title challenge.

“This team’s got everything and we want to win the league, we want to be champions,” the 20-year-old told The Standard.

“The personnel and staff, everyone wants to do well here.

“Everyone’s given 100 per cent this year.

“You can’t look at anyone and say ‘they should have done better’. Everyone’s given their best and hopefully we can stay together next year.

“If we can keep the majority of this team together we can definitely go places.

“Everyone gets on well here and if we can keep that together it’s only going to be a good thing.”

Galinski points to a strong team spirit in the dressing room as a major factor in Boston’s success last season, where they improved on their previous season’s finish by 10 places.

When asked how vital that dressing room togetherness is, the former Poland youth international added: “It’s massive.

“Little groups and cliques are never good. If you have that in the dressing room it does eventually show on the pitch, whether that’s in a week or two months.

“This year we’ve all pulled in the right direction.

“Maybe there’s been a few blips but this side has been brilliant this year.”

Galinski spent much of the season playing as part of a back three alongside teammates Carl Piergianni and Scott Garner, the two players he says he is closest to in the dressing room.

Piergianni has recently penned a two-year deal with the club and United are still in talks with Garner.

However, Galinski is adamant that York Street is the place he wants to be for the forseeable future.

“I want to stay here, 100 per cent,” he added.

“It’s a great club and it’s going places.

I’d like to be part of that. It’s just down to the gaffer to decide now and, hopefully, I’ll be part of his plans.”

Boston United have once again frozen season ticket and matchday admission prices for the upcoming 2014-2015 season.

On the back of their best return of home league victories and home league goals scored since 2000, United boss Dennis Greene is targeting more of the same and is appealing for the continued support of the Boston public.

Season ticket sales begin at 10am today (Wednesday). The early bird period of prices, offering significant savings on full price season tickets, will be in operation until Saturday, May 31.

A host of family tickets are also available, plus the popular Mini Pilgrims (under 10s) season ticket for £25.
