New boy Anton Foster feels at home with Boston United
A BUOYANT Anton Foster admitted he felt at home straight away after launching his Pilgrims career in impressive fashion.
Anchoring a three-man midfield, Foster made an accomplished debut against Colwyn Bay on Saturday as United recorded a 1-0 victory.
The Yorkshireman is no stranger to Blue Square Bet North level having played for Halifax and Eastwood and is already relishing life with the Pilgrims.
"I'm really enjoying it and it was a nice debut," said Foster.

"I like to think I give the team a bit of steel. I break play up and give it to people who can play. I know my role, that is why the gaffer brought me here.
"This feels like home already. It felt really good on Saturday and I haven't had that feeling for a long time.
"It's nice to be back at this level. I didn't think I would come back to this level, but when the manager gave me the call I snapped his hand off. I really wanted it.
"It is a bit of an issue with the travelling (from Sheffield), but with the size of the club, where they are going and where they want to go, I couldn't turn it down.
"I'll travel the two hours, it doesn't matter, I'll suck it up."
Pilgrims boss Graham Drury was delighted with Foster's impact.
"Anton's not interested in running past three players and hitting a 60-yard pass. He wins it and gives it," said Drury.
"He's done it at this level before. He's played in good sides at Halifax and won league titles with Eastwood.
"I was really surprised, when I was at Stamford, to see him playing for Sheffield a couple of leagues lower down.
"I think he'd got into a comfort zone playing on his doorstep.
"But he really wants to be here."
