"I miss winning trophies!" Craig Elliott will be taking tonight's county cup final between Boston United and Cleethorpes Town deadly seriously
And Elliott says the contest matters just as much as March's six league fixtures.
"The players didn't think I was serious when I said that," he told The Standard.
"I had three aims this year: I wanted a good FA Cup run, I wanted to win the Lincolnshire Cup, that's why I took it so seriously, and I want to be in the promotion mix.
"The Lincolnshire Cup will be taken seriously. We've got to do that. We've put too much work into the previous matches.
"Every game will be a big game now. I miss winning trophies, it's be nice to win one again."
