Vines quoshes rumors Boston Town are looking at Chand

BOSTON Town chairman Mick Vines has reassured manager Martyn Lakin his job is safe.

A raft of internet rumours this week suggested that Lakin, currently into his second season with the Poachers, was set to be replaced by Holbeach United boss John Chand.

However, Vines dismissed the suggestions, stating that he hoped the ex-Bourne Town boss would be at Tattershall Road for the long haul.

“The rumours about John Chand are total rubbish,” Vines said.

“We’re looking for Martyn Lakin to follow in the footsteps of Bob Don-Duncan and be with the club for years to come.

“I’m pleased with how Martyn is performing as the manager and John has never been considered or approached for the position.”

A move for Chand, which circulated around internet site Twitter this week, would seem unlikely.

Boston-based Chand said: “I can confirm that I’m 100 per cent staying with Holbeach.

“We are nearly halfway into a three-year plan here and I really want to see it through.

“The club took a chance on me at the start of last season and I owe them a lot.

“Obviously it is flattering to be linked with Boston, they’re a great club in my home town.”
