Boston United have appointed former Shaw Lane boss, Craig Elliott as the club’s new manager.

The former Ossett Town manager has enjoyed an excellent last few years, guiding Shaw Lane to three promotions in four years as well as overseeing the club’s run to the first round of this season’s FA Cup.

Elliott left the high-flying South Yorkshire club to take over at York Street with the aim of lifting Boston to safety.

In his first interview to Boston United’s website, new boss Elliott said: “I’m extremely excited. I feel very privileged to be the manager of Boston United and I can’t wait to get started.

“There’s only a handful of clubs that would turn my head and Boston are in that category. You can’t turn these opportunities down, especially as a young, ambitious manager.

“I wouldn’t have come here if I didn’t feel confident. It’s a challenge but i’m fully prepared,” he said.

Boston chairman, David Newton has expressed his delight at bringing in the talented coach, citing his consistency and knowledge of the non-league game as primary reasons for his appointment.

Newton said: “We are delighted that Craig Elliott has joined Boston United. His track record as a manager is second-to-none within the non-league system over the past few years, which has seen him take Shaw Lane to the top of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division with three promotions in four seasons.

“Not only has he been successful, but has been consistently successful,” he added.

“Craig is a very ambitious, young manager who has a clear vision of where he wants to go within his career and his ambitions match ours,” he said.
