Peter Costello Player Profile
Debut: Chester City (H, 0-0), 09/08/2003
Peter Costello made the switch from Boston United following the 2002/3 season, and made the switch with fellow Pilgrim. The experienced midfielder was part of the Pilgrims’ Championship winning season, and he was also given a taste of Football League action as the club overcame a points deduction to remain in the Nationwide Division Three.
The injury sustained by Sam McMahon at the tail end of the 2002/3 season made it easier for Costello to force his way into the Boro’ starting XI, and on occasion the midfielder was preferred to younger startees – Danny Carroll and Steve Watson – as his experience shone through.
However, his 2003/4 campaign was curtailed by injury after Lee Trundle committed several transgressions on his way to netting a second goal against Boro’ for Swansea City in a FA Cup tie at Vetch Field.
