New Boston Town boss Gary Frost says it’s time for the Poachers to start climbing up the table.
The incoming manager watched from the stands as his side climbed out of the United Counties League Premier Division’s bottom two with a 2-2 draw at home to Leicester Nirvana on Saturday.
And he plans to use the rest of the campaign to lay down a foundation on which they can build in the future.
“The first thing we need to do is consolidate our league position,” he told The Standard.
“The team is there, they just need to kick on.
“We want to finish as high as we can, but the main thing is to stay in the league and give us something to work on next season.”
Frost, who helped guide Wyberton from the Boston Saturday League to third in the Lincolnshire League last season, will take the reins for the first time tomorrow (Wednesday) as the Poachers host Wisbech Town at the DWB Stadium (KO 7.45pm).
This will be followed by Saturday’s visit of Huntingdon Town, who sit a place below Boston in the standings (KO 3pm).
Lori Borbely, who has been acting as interim manager alongside Darren Bevan since the departure of Nathan Collins, will be Frost’s new assistant.
“I’ve known Lori for more than 10 years, since we were teammates for the Magnet Tavern (in the Boston Sunday League), so I’m looking forward to working with him,” he added.
“He knows the players well and he also wants to be out there playing.”
Borbely told bostontownfc.co.uk: “Gary is buzzing to get this opportunity and we’re really excited to have him on board.
“He already knows most of our players but this will be the first time he’s managed in the United Counties League so I’ll be assisting him.”
