Royston Town former hot-shot striker Adam Marriott has praised Crows fans parting after joining Vanarama National League North side Boston United.

A goal-laden season at Garden Walk has earned Marriott a move back up the leagues, with Lincolnshire side Boston swooping for the 27-year-old - who is on a mission to return to the football league.

The former Stevenage frontman announced his arrival by smacking a strike into the top corner from 25-yards in his first pre-season game for the Pilgrims, in a 1-1 draw with Chesterfield FC.

Speaking to CrowSport, Marriott said: “It’s nice to make a step up and restart my career. This is a new challenge for me and I’m really excited about it.

“I had a good time at Royston and now I’ve got all my injuries out the way I’m looking forward to a really good season.

“Ever since the season finished Craig Elliott got in touch with me and was clear he wanted to get me to Boston. I’ve heard good things about him and the club.

“Now I want to excite people. I’m very ambitious and I’d like to get back to the football league or the conference because I’ve been there before.”

After joining from Lincoln City in the summer, Marriott finished Crows top-scorer, scored three hat-tricks and bagged four in a 5-1 win over Merthyr Town last season.

Marriott said: “I want to say a big thank you for a great year. It’s a great little club, there’s some brilliant people there and I’ve met some good friends.

“I wish them all the best, I’ll get down and support the boys and say hello to everyone at some point.

“I don’t see why they can’t get in the play-offs, we weren’t far off last season.”

Crows boss Steve Castle added: “I’m pleased for him and wish him all the luck in the world.

“He’s a great lad and hopefully he can score himself loads of goals and get another opportunity to play league football.

“Quite rightly someone from a league higher has come in for him, it was unfair that Adam was judged while he wasn’t fully fit.

“If he keeps fit there’s no reason why he can’t score goals at most levels.”
