Home-town core can help Poachers succeed, says boss Borbely

Lori Borbely believes his Poachers should be showcasing as much home-town talent as possible.

The Boston Town boss believes that a nucleus of players from the area can only strengthen the team’s ‘desire’ to succeed.

“For me it’s important to be Boston-based as much as we can,” he told The Standard.

“It would be hard to put out a side which is just Boston lads at this level, so you will always need a few outsiders, as it were.

“But I like the thought of having a Boston team and players showing desire for their club.”

Borbely moved to England from his native Romania, but after spending 10 years at the DWB Stadium, and even longer in the town, he feels very much as home in Lincolnshire.

And it was one of his Boston-based signings which settled the contest as the Poachers left Huntingdon Town with a 1-0 victory on Saturday - Lee Orrey finding the net in the fourth minute.

“Lee rolled back the years again,” Borbely added

“He’s been brilliant for us and he is still capable of scoring a goal and winning a game for us.”

Town, currently 11th in the UCL Premier, are now hoping for another three points as they host old foes Cogenhoe United on Saturday (KO 3pm) - the club’s final Saturday home fixture of the season.

“They’re a good side and are scoring a lot of goals,” Borbely added. “But as I always say, if we can play our game like we know we can then we can win the game.

“We just need to work hard and prepare in the right way.

“We have had some hard games against Cogenhoe over the years but we have to make sure we’re playing well.”
