Winning mentality will aid Boston United, says Jake Sheridan

Jake Sheridan says he has been impressed by the winning mentality installed at Boston United.

The Pilgrims’ new-recruit, who has joined on loan from Alfreton Town until the end of the season, is loving the buzz about the club.

He said: “When you start building momentum you start going into games where the talk beforehand is all about winning games.

“We don’t talk about coming for a draw, you talk about winning games.

“That kind of spirit can only be good.

“I know I’ve dropped down a level, but when you talk about stature of club and where they want to go, it’s good to be part of a positive set-up.”

At 28, Sheridan is the most senior player in the squad, something the former Notts County and Lincoln City man has never known before.

But he hopes that his experience can rub off on the younger players, just like his willingness to put in a shift wherever he’s asked.

United boss Dennis Greene is a firm believer in bolstering his small squad by bringing in players who can do a job in a variety of roles.

And that is something Sheridan knows all about.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity,” he added.

“I’ve played up front, on the wing, centre mid, right back and left back.

“I’ve been all over the pitch.”

But where does he think he’s at his most influential?

“Probably on the wing or up front are probably where I’m most comfortable,” he added.

“But at the minute I’ll play anywhere.”

Dennis Greene expects good things from Sheridan once he regains his full match fitness.

He said: “His composure, knowledge and experience is what we need.

“He hasn’t played a lot in the last three months but he’s got loads of games to look forward to.

“There’s plenty of time for him to make an impact.”
