When Martyn Bunce's side won the Lincolnshire Senior Trophy last April, he was the first Poachers captain to lift silverware for 14 years.

Martyn said: "Lee has been a fantastic player for so many clubs in and around the county over the years, but for me personally we have enjoyed a great relationship built on trust and respect.

"I would like to thank Lee for all his support and effort he has not only given to myself but to his team mates and everyone involved with Boston Town FC. "He will be greatly missed both on and off the pitch, but I totally understand his decision to step down and spend more time at home with his wonderful family.

"We all wish Lee, Meg and Nelly all the very best for the future and some quality family time together."Kick-off on Saturday (13 April) against Ashby Ivanhoe is 3pm.
