Plans for a new one hundred million pound development in Boston go on show for the first time today.

Boston United football club announced they were hoping to build a four thousand capacity stadium in the town which would see them move from their current Jakemans stadium. The project would include 500 new homes, shops and restaurants and could create over 450 jobs.

Rotherham United have appointed Crawley Town's Steve Evans as their new manager. The 49-year-old Scot has been in charge at Broadfield Stadium since 2007, leading the team to the Conference title last season with a record 105 points and their first ever Football League campaign.

This season Crawley have been challenging for promotion from League Two and currently sit in fourth place. Rotherham, who sacked Andy Scott last month after less than a year in charge, are out of the promotion picture but at least have the carrot of a new stadium to move into next season.

Evans was Boston United's manager between 1998 and 2007 but was suspended for 20 months and convicted of tax fraud while in charge at the club. He was also fined after being found guilty of 'impeding the inquiry'.

Boston were docked four points and fined £100,000 by the FA. Rotherham host Cheltenham this afternoon but it's not known if Evans will take charge of team matters.
