New chap at the helm.
He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

Thought we were after someone with NL and NLN experience? Hope we have not fallen for the patter of saying all the right things, we had that with Drury.

3 promotions in 4 seasons with Shaw Lane and currently in a good position again this season. I appreciate that's at a lower level, but he's clearly playing winning football, and that's a good habit to bring to our club.

Good luck to him.They don't want to lose him.like Scott and Hurst has a good Northern League record so sounds promising. Brave appointment considering KHs efforts.
Welcome on-board Craig and whoever you bring with you.

Agree with that TTT turned SL into a winning force & he would have probably taken them into CN next season. Alot of these bright managers in NP do well in our league & further. Look at managers from NP with spennymoor & Blythe this season.
Elliot saw us a big club & is obviously more than up for the challenge. All the best to him.

Welcome Craig Elliot, I hope you can get us moving up the league.

 I know its pit Leagues but his Shaw Lane history reads incredible   ::)

  There's some fairly interesting names there ..

Hmmmmmm
Shaw lane were basically a park team that have gone through the leagues let's hope along the way he has spotted a few gems and we can tempt a few to add to what Karl has got out of our improved side over the last 2 weeks.
This was a vital appointment which must work for the club.

The Owner has decided ,looks the most proper manager since S & S combined .

   Hopefully we will be caused to keep off his back for the next few months / years ..

   Wonder how longs the contract ?

Not doubting he has promotions under his belt, was merely asking why DN said what I posted and then employed someone who had not been in either league.

Wish him well and after watching Shaw Lane on tv last week I like his approach to the game, just hope he doesn't bring a "best player in the league" type though  ;)

You really couldn't make Boston fans up. Here is an idea giver him a chance. He's only managed in non League. He actually said he'd prefer someone with conference north experience not it was a deal breaker

I am giving him a chance, just repeating what the Chairman said. We had a manager who made comments and they came back to haunt him remember  ;D

As I  said, I liked what I saw last week when Shaw Lane were on tv and welcome his appointment and, like every other manager, I will give him time and hope he is not driven out by the boo boys as he tries to get the lads playing his way. I have only ever called for one manager to be sacked and that was Moyes at United :D

Onwards and upwards and looking forward to the next chapter in our History.
