Ollie Pinner joins our list of 50 legendary Poachers

Ollie Pinner (Midfielder, 2004 - present)

Only one of the current Boston Town squad can boast that he's played for the club in every one of the last 11 seasons.

After a brief sojourn at Holbeach, Ollie Pinner was recently welcomed back to the DWB Stadium where he started his senior footballing career more than a decade ago.

His longevity is a testament to his versatility. Currently playing as a no-holds-barred midfielder who's not afraid to mix it, he's also been a central defender and striker in the past - and even completed the full set when he took over as emergency goalkeeper on one occasion!

Ollie was a raw teenager when he first broke into a Boston Town which include the likes of Simon Ward, Richard Pell, Lee Rippin and Ross Don-Duncan at the time. Bob Don-Duncan blooded him in so gradually that he was limited to substitute appearances for three full seasons, only starting for the first time in 2007-08.

Since then, he's been pretty much a fixture, clocking up his 250th appearance last month.

Still only a relative youngster, Ollie has the potential to rack up many more in the future - enough to challenge our three all-time record-holders for most appearances, Lee Rippin, Matt Price and Ross Don-Duncan?

Debut: 28 August 2004 - Wootton Blue Cross 1, Boston Town 1
