Departing Boro star George Boyd is excited at the prospect of continuing his football education.

The 21-year-old was a regular for the England National Game XI, the non-league representative side, in 2006 but has never played in the League before.

Boyd said: "I want to prove myself as a League player.

"It's a silly amount to pay for a Conference player but I'll do my best to show I'm worth it.

Boyd's increased goal output continued as he scored twice in the 3-2 home win over Aldershot - his final appearance in a Boro shirt at Broadhall Way - on New Year's Day.

"The win at home to Aldershot was a great way to see the boys off and I was quite choked at the end," he admitted.
