“Everyone is playing for their shirt! Jake Wright jnr says Boston United squad is 110% behind interim boss Paul Green
Jake Wright jnr knows that all members of the Boston United squad are “playing for the jersey” after the departure of Craig Elliott.
The new Pilgrims manager – whether an external candidate or interim boss Paul Green – will undoubtedly contribute his own ideas.
And forward Wright jnr knows it’s up to him and his teammates to impress.
“It’s a new start for everyone,” he told the club’s YouTube channel after Saturday’s goalless draw at Gloucester City.
“Everyone was playing realistically for their jersey. It’s possible the new manager is here watching, you just don’t know.”
Wright jnr was a player who has always impressed former boss Elliott, who scrambled to move him to York Street after two periods on loan from York City.
Elliott was also blocked by the forward during his long-term hamstring injury.
“I cannot thank the staff (enough) for all they have done for me over the years,” added Wright.
“They believed in me when others didn’t and gave me time.
“I can’t thank them enough, I really mean it.
“A lot has changed in a week, with Craig leaving. I’m sad to see him go, I have a lot of time for him, he has looked after me over the years.”
Wright added that he “respects decisions made from above” and that the team is fully behind teammate Green as he takes on leadership roles.
“Greeny is an influential player in the dressing room,” he said.
“I wish him all the best and the guys will give him 110%.”
