Boston Town goalkeeper Callum Bastock has joined Grimsby Town on a two-year scholarship.
The 16-year-old - the son of Boston United’s all-time appearance record holder and current Worksop stopper Paul - caught the eye of the Mariners following a number of impressive appearances for the Poachers.
He will now move to Grimsby’s youth academy, where he will work under ex-Poachers midfielder Nathan Collins and aim to work his way into Rob Scott and Paul Hurst’s first team squad.
Ian Dunn, Bastock’s manager at Tattershall Road, said he went with the club’s best wishes.
He told The Standard: “Callum has done a fantastic job for us.
“He won us the match at Long Buckby by making a number of top saves.
“He’s only 16, but he plays as if he’s a lot older.
“We wish him all the best.”
Town have replaced Bastock with Harry Ashton, the brother of another ex-Pilgrim, defender Simon.
Ashton - another product of Grimsby’s academy - made his debut in Tuesday’s 2-1 victory over Yaxley.
He became the ninth player to keep goal for the Poachers this season.
