It has been a fine run for Boston United in recent months since Craig Elliott took charge, with one of his new signings praising the impact the manager is having on the side, writes Tom Feaheny.
"It’s been brilliant, his desire and determination completely rubs off on all the lads and he’s really pulled everyone together. Yes the confidence he has shown in me has obviously filled me with confidence," Abbott said.
"The dressing room is a good place to be at the moment everybody is full of confidence and the team is just getting stronger and stronger."
Abbott joined the side from Evo-Stik Premier outfit Buxton and the midfielder believes his time there really helped him and had led to interest from Elliott previously.
"My time at Buxton was great I really enjoyed it and the manager and all the staff there were great with me. I needed to get my love for football back again and i did that when I went to buxton and more game time has helped me grow and become better and more experienced.
"Craig (Elliott) actually tried to sign me at the start of the season for Shaw Lane but it didn’t end up happening, when I found out he wanted me at Boston I jumped at the opportunity."
While it was a jump up by a league from where he was, Abbott says his time with other sides has helped him adjust to the level quickly.
"I feel since joining Boston and playing in the national league north I have taken to it really well. I’ve played in the national league north before when i was on loan at Harrogate from barnsley when I was really young so I knew what to expect when I was going in to games at this level."
With Boston United now on a nine game unbeaten run, Abbott says they are not getting ahead of themselves.
"This season we are just taking it game by and looking no further than the next one. Obviously our aim is to finish as high as possible in the league but like I say we take it game by game and we hope to keep the run going and finish as high up in the table as we possibly can."
