Boston Town have signed defender Simon Ashton.

The centre back - whose brother Harry is a former Poachers keeper - joined the club on Friday.

“He’s a Boston lad and a really good defender, so we are delighted to have him on board,” said Town manager Nathan Collins.

Ashton (pictured) began his senior career with Boston United, where he was part of the squad which won promotion from the UniBond Premier League in 2010.

He also has experience with Wisbech Town and Deeping Rangers.
