Boston Utd

Postby frt1987 » Mon Feb 06, 2017 11:09 pm

Being unable to get to Barnet on Saturday, I had a trip to Boston to see them in action v Harrogate Town

On view were 5 ex stags...Adam Murray on the touchline was joined by Karl Hawley and Joe Fitzpatrick who were named as subs.

Adam Chapman made his debut in the holding midfield role after signing from Gainsborough but he looked unfit and was completely off the pace...eventually being replaced by Hawley midway through the second half.

Richard Brodie looked equally as unfit as Chapman upfront for Boston.

The ex stag to catch the eye was Harrogates Warren Burrell who was a youth team player whilst at Mansfield and he had a great game on the left wing looking quick and sharp when in possession.

Anyway Boston lost 3-0 and the natives were restless with their teams performance. Much work needed by Muzz on this showing

You should have a quick look on their forum, a post from Johnny Pilgrim shows he's still clueless

Just read this how I read this is that if Murray had stayed in charge then he was bringing Chapman back?? Or I am reading it wrong?

I know that he is at Boston but in the article Murray is quoted saying the plan was he was coming back but I moved away and the new Mansfield manager did not see him in his plans?

I was led to believe that Mr Murray had invited Mr Chapman back training before he was relieved of his duties at Field Mill.

Apparently Richard Brodie has had his contract terminated after 3 games.

If that's the case there is little wonder he was relieved of his duties.

Brodie didn't last long!

"Brodie's contract has been terminated, an internal matter that the club’s dealing with,” said manager Adam Murray, choosing not to elaborate further on the issues which led to the target man’s departure.

Boston United

Postby Tippy Tappy Football » Wed May 17, 2017 2:42 pm

I see Adam Murray has relocated Boston United's training ground to......................................Mansfield. It's better for recruiting players (and nothing to do with being nearer his home). :lol:

He's in prime position to pick up any of Steve Evans' cast offs. If Stevie falls out with anybody then he can send them down the road to train with Boston.

He's also arranged a friendly against Paul Cox's Barrow side. They seem to have kissed and made up.

He's got a point though. You'd probably have to relocate if you were playing and training in Boston. Players could probably still go to work Mon-Fri, make training and then make the long haul on the winding roads to Boston at the weekend.

Here you go Mark

"Adam Murray believes switching Boston United's training base has significantly enhanced the club's pulling power. The Pilgrims boss made the decision to move training away from RAF Cranwell to just off the M1 near Mansfield to cut travelling times for players. And the move is already paying off, says Murray. “The number of players we have had meetings with in the past two weeks has been unbelievable," said Murray. The season has only been finished for two weeks and we are already seeing players and agents lower their terms and expectations. There are a lot of players out there and no-one wants to be left without a club. Moving our training base has significantly helped. Boston is a big club in this league and an attractive proposition for players, but travelling can be an issue. I was called by an agent of a very good player at this level who was interested in the club, but concerned about the travelling. After I told him about the move, it was a very different story. The move will prove to be a major step in the future development of this club. It's just one of a few tweaks we are putting in place to give us that extra one per cent and make us more professional. When you put them all together we believe we will be a real force in the future."

The National League promotion hopefuls Barrow will then visit the Jakemans Stadium for a pre-season friendly on Saturday, July 15 (kick-off 3pm). "I have known Paul Cox [Barrow manager] for a long time and was his assistant at Mansfield. A game against Barrow will be good for us. It will ask questions of us that we will be asked in the league campaign. We could have gone down the route of playing against Football League club's youth players but we don't need that, we need to be posed the same problems we will face in the National League North and Barrow will give us that."

Thanks Darren you're a star. Could be anywhere then. Somewhere like Ashfield School maybe?

This is nothing new for Boston. They trained at Newark for a number of years before they got promotion to the FL.
We might win against Accrington next time.
