Former Hull United manager, Curtis Woodhouse has described Boston United as a “giant of non league.”

Woodhouse made over 100 league appearances for Birmingham City between 1997 and 2001.

The former professional footballer turned to boxing in 2006 when he won his first professional boxing match, defeating Dean Marcantonio, on points.

Woodhouse is currently manager of Northern Counties East Premier League side, Bridlington Town where he was recently nominated for @TheBootifulGame‘s “Prem Div Manager of Month.”

The former Grimsby Town player is also a UEFA qualified coach.

Dennis Greene parted company with Boston United on Monday after three seasons with The Pilgrims.

Greene had missed out on the play-offs on the final day of his first season in charge before going on to guide Boston to a top five finish for two consecutive years.

Former United players including Wycombe Wanderers star, Dayle Southwell took to Twitter to comment on the manager’s departure.

National League North side, Boston United recently released a statement saying: “Following the departure of Dennis Greene, Boston United are looking to appoint a first team manager and would welcome applications from suitably qualified managers and coaches.”

When asked about the vacant position at The Jakemans Stadium, Woodhouse said: “Great club, a bit of a giant in non league, I’m sure they will have lots of applications.

“Very happy at Bridlington Town.”
