Mark Angel is new boss

Chairman Mick Vines swoops for ex-West Brom and Boston United player

Boston Town have appointed the highly-experienced Mark Angel as their new manager.

The former West Brom and Oxford United winger takes the reins from Lori Borbely, who has been caretaker boss since January.

The 39-year-old also played for Darlington, Queen of the South, King's Lynn, Cambridge United and Stamford.

Mark has completed his UEFA A licence coaching badge following a 15-year career as a professional player.

He's well known to Boston football fans after playing for three seasons at York Street, helping United to win promotion to the Football League in 2001-02.

His spell at The Hawthorns in the First Division saw him line up alongside the likes of Lee Hughes and current BBC pundit Kevin Kilbane.

Mark's coaching experience includes running Arsenal Soccer Schools in Lincolnshire and North Cambridgeshire.

Boston Town chairman Mick Vines said he was delighted with the club's new boss.

He sees Mark as a long-term appointment and aims to give him time to re-establish the Poachers as one of the leading clubs in the United Counties League.

One player Mark will have to do without, however, is striker Ryan Oliver, who has opted to re-join Sleaford Town.

The new manager will be having an introductory meeting tomorrow at the DWB Stadium. Among the players who have already committed themselves to the club for the new season is Mark's former Boston United team-mate Daryl Clare, who is expected to add his considerable expertise to the coaching set-up in some capacity.
