Terry Hawkridge gives Boston United the perfect blend of skill and experience, manager Craig Elliott says.

The former Scunthorpe United, Lincoln City and Notts County winger will remain with the Pilgrims after agreeing a new deal.

"His enthusiasm shines through to the rest of the squad," Elliott said.

"He's always first out at training and last in. He just loves to play football and wants to play as often as he can.

"He's just an outstanding footballer, some of the things he does in training are incredible and it's a pleasure to watch him."

Hawkridge, 31, won the National League title with Lincoln and was part of the Red Imps side which reached the FA Cup's quarter-finals in 2017 before losing at Premier League Arsenal.

"He's an experienced player who can help others around him, even if he still looks the same as he did when he was 21," Elliott added.

"He's had a lot of good experiences in his career and can help us all in those nitty gritty games, the big games with big crowds."
