New boy Kyle Dixon is determined to stamp out his authority in the Boston United midfield.

The Notts County teenager is currently on loan at Boston United in a deal which is hoped to keep him at York Street for the rest of the season.

After impressing on his Pilgrims debut against Solihull Moors, 19-year-old Dixon is keen to prove himself in the Skrill North.

“I’m enjoying it here and I want to put my stamp on the team,” Dixon told The Standard.

“I’m a box-to-box midfielder and I’m just here to try my best and put everything into this club.

“They’ve given me the chance to play football, so I’ve got to repay them by playing well. And I’ve got to repay the gaffer for picking me.”

Dixon admits he sees his long-term goal to be in the Football League with the Magpies.

But in the mean time he is happy to cut his teeth with Boston.

And he believes that coming into a club packed with youngsters is also helping him to settle in quickly.

United’s 20-man squad currently has an average age of 22, with the three oldest players all aged just 28.

“To be fair, all the lads here are sound,” Dixon added.

“It helps that we’re all pretty young lads and they all get behind each other.

“We’re all here as a team for the same thing, we all want three points after every game.”

Dixon will now be looking to stamp out his authority further with two matches this week.

On Saturday the Pilgrim host Gainsborough Trinity (KO 3pm).

This will be followed by Tuesday evening’s clash at manager Dennis Greene’s former club Histon (7.45pm).
