Teamwork will be the key for Boston Town success

Boston Town manager Ian Dunn believes teamwork will see the Poachers become a force to be reckoned with in the UCL Premier.

Town finished the 2012-13 campaign in 10th spot, the minumum requirement Dunn and joint manager Matt Hocking outlined at the start of the season.

Now the duo are hoping for better from their second year in the Tattershall Road dug-out.

“We have a lot of talented players in the squad,” Dunn said.

“Perhaps they are more talented as individuals than as a team at the moment.

“But with the right coaching in pre-season we’ll be there.

“We can do a lot better with our resources.

“If we pick up five new signings we can push on.”

Dunn and Hocking will look to the fact that they arrived at Boston late last summer -after guiding Pinchbeck United to the Peterborough Premier League title - and had little time to put a side together.

The fact they regularly had to chop and change throughout the campaign - they used 35 different players and an amazing nine different goalkeepers - affected fluency and understanding on the pitch.

An inquest into the season would also suggest the Poachers failed to kill off too many games.

Dunn continued: “I can’t believe the amount of times we couldn’t convert chances.

“Across the whole team, the amount of times we hit the crossbar or post all season, it was ridiculous.

“If we can start putting a few more of those in, we’ll win a lot more matches next year.”
