Boston United’s youth brigade will only get better.
That is the message manager Dennis Greene is sending to his Skrill North rivals.
With the Pilgrims currently sitting in fifth before last night’s matches - and with their sights set firmly on promotion to the Conference Premier - Greene is adamant that his youthful side can only improve with each game.
Loanees Liam Agnew and Kyle Dixon and new signings Ryan Semple and Jamie McGhee are still looking to fully integrate with the squad.
And when they finally find themselves on the same wavelength as their new teammates, Greene believes performances will improve drastically.
“If we can push on and get better then that’s a good thing,” Greene said, pointing out that he hopes his team can save their best until last.
“We want to peak when we’ve finished in the play-offs. That’s the only time to peak, then you’ve got to do it for three games.”
After coming through a tough few weeks of fixtures, and still in a position to challenge, Greene is now prepping his team for a final big push.
He added: “When you look since December 28, we’ve chalked of Hednesford, Telford, Solihull, Stockport. We’ve chalked off some big fixtures and got ourselves up to fifth (now third following victory at Histon).
“If we can keep chalking off the big fixtures and stay up there then there’s no reason why we can’t achieve our goals.
“After five games people thought we’d fade away. Then we went 10, 15, 20 matches and we’re still around there.
“I think we’ll be there right until the death and then hopefully we can have a bit of luck if we get in the play-offs.”
