Boston Town boss Ian Dunn has told his Poachers to finish their season on a high.

Dunn and joint manager Matt Hocking want to conclude their inaugural season in charge of the UCL Premier side in style, beginning with Saturday’s clash at already-relegated Irchester United.

“We don’t want to end the season with a whimper,” Dunn said.

“We’ve had a stable side since Christmas and we want to build on that next season.

“We want to keep the majority of the squad here, improve it, have a good pre-season together and look to win a trophy next season.”

Dunn’s words come after Saturday’s slip up at Stewarts & Lloyds Corby, where the Poachers lost 3-0.

They conceded all their goals in the opening 20 minutes before seeing any chance of a fightback evaporate when Mark Foster’s strike hit the crossbar and Josh Ford saw a one-on-one saved.

Town now head off to face basement side Irchester on Saturday (KO 3pm).

The Romans have only won one of their 35 league games to date, and Town dont want to be the second team to hand them three points.

“They’ve been relegated, so we don’t know how they’ll play,” Dunn added.

“Maybe they’ll think the pressure’s off and go for it.

“But what we don’t want is the lads to see where they are in the league and just think they need to turn up to win it.”

The Poachers will then travel to Desborough on Tuesday for more league action.

Kick off at will be at 7.45pm.
