DANNY Matson says he is in the form of his life - and ready to right some wrongs at Boston Town.

The striker has agreed to re-join the Poachers, after being won over by manager Martyn Lakin’s ambition.

Matson scored more than 30 goals in his solitary season with Town, despite spending much of the season sidelined with a snapped cruciate.

However, after joining rivals Deeping Rangers and helping fire them to the UCL Premier title - alongside fellow Poacher Lorand Borbely - his defection angered some supporters.

“I think a lot of the fans there thought I was a bit of a sicknote - but you can’t help injuries,” he said.

“I’m going back to Boston to right some wrongs.”

As manager Lakin looks to build a side based on youth, 26-year-old Matson could be seen as one of the side’s senior players.

And it’s a challenge he’s looking forward to, although he doesn’t think he’s ready for veteran status yet..

The ex-Boston United and Stamford player said: “I feel like I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in.

“I may be one of the older lads at Boston, but 26 is no age in football.

“I’m confident I can score goals and do well. I’ve been in and around the UCL for years and know the league well.

“I’ve been working hard and training with Lee Taylor (ex-Boston United physio) and I feel good.”

After spending last at season at St Ives, Matson said the travelling to and from Cambridgeshire became ‘demotivating’.

After looking for a move closer to home, he opted to turn down a ‘cracking’ offer at Holbeach because he felt that, with so many new additions to the side, the Tigers would take time to get going, something he doesn’t see as a problem at Tattershall Road.

He added: “I’ve had a few offers but I want to be at a team I think will be up there and challenging, and I think that will be where Boston are.

“We’ve lost some good players, but the names I’ve heard the manager talk about are top players.”

“The chairman (Mick Vines) and manager have both spoken to me about their ambition for the club, and it matches mine.

“Holbeach made me a cracking offer and they’ve signed some very good players. A new team can sometimes be unsettled and need time to gel.”
