Bunce is new boss

Boston Town are delighted to announce they have appointed Martyn Bunce as their new manager.

He will take over from Gary Edgley, who is stepping down at the end of the season for personal reasons.

Boston-born Bunce will bring a wealth of experience to the role, having coached and managed in the National League North.

As a goalkeeper, Bunce had a number of short spells with the Poachers during his playing career. He made 26 appearances in their first ever season in the United Counties League in 1991-92, playing alongside the likes of Chris Cook, Derrick Nuttell and Jim Rodwell.

He also played for Wyberton, Holbeach, Spalding and Boston United.

Bunce has had several management and coaching roles with Boston United over the past decade. As well as playing a big part in running their reserves and youth set-up, he became Dennis Greene’s assistant manager for the first team in 2013 and took temporary charge when Greene left in 2016.

He had a brief spell with Wisbech Town as first team coach in 2017 and the following season he took over as manager of Skegness Town, who were then in the Northern Counties East League Division One, before relinquishing the role to Nathan Collins.

Boston Town’s final two games of the season are over the Easter weekend – away at Holbeach on Saturday and at home to Sleaford on Monday.
