VIDEO: Dennis Greene aiming for the first round proper of FA Cup
Dennis Greene believes a long overdue run in the FA Cup could swell his playing budget at Boston United.
The Pilgrims begin their cup campaign on Saturday with a trip to Evo-Stik League Premier Division strugglers Stafford Rangers in the second qualifying round.
Greene wants to improve on United’s dreadful recent record in the competition and is targeting a place in the first round proper.
That would bring in vital funds which could be used to strengthen Greene’s small squad.

The Pilgrims boss had been hoping to bring in a midfield on loan from a Skrill Premier side. However, it is believed the wages of the player in question have proved a stumbling block.
“It’s important for the club and it’s important for me because if we can get through a few rounds, I might be able to get one or two more players in,” said Greene.
“If we can win against Stafford, we could get a home draw in the next round, and we feel like we can beat anybody at home.
“We want to get through so I won’t be resting players. I want to get through to the first round proper of the FA Cup.
“The first step is Stafford away and we’ll be taking it very seriously.”
Stafford climbed off the foot of the table on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over FC United of Manchester. Alex Steadman scored the winner deep into added time for Andy Mutch’s side.
Rangers reached the second qualifying round after overcoming local rivals Chasetown after a replay.
