BOSTON Town want to sign midfielder Luke Toner... but they will have to wait until he has finished at the Olympic Games.

No, the Poachers’ target is not a 100m specialist, a road racing cyclist or a keen canoeist.

Sadly, he is also not a member of the Team GB football team.

But the Town target – who played for Sleaford last season – will be based in London throughout the games due to work commitments with the RAF.

However, on his return to base at RAF Cranwell, managers Ian Dunn and Matt Hocking will be keen to land his signature.

“He’s a good player but his work commitments with the RAF mean he’ll be at the Olympics for the next month,” said Dunn.

“He played one game for us (against Lincoln Moorlands) and impressed us a lot.

“We’re keen to get him on board. He’s a fit lad – he’s a PTI (physical training instructor).”

However, to land their man, the Poachers bosses must now play the waiting game.

Dunn continued: “He’ll be away on duty and won’t be able to join us until after the first game of the season.

“But he’s someone we would like to have at the club.

“When we’ve spoken things have seemed positive.”

Last week Town re-signed wingers Callum Stocks and Tom Ruck after both impressed in pre-season.

Dunn described the young pair as ‘good additions to the squad’.

Meanwhile, talks continue with former Premier League striker Julian Joachim.

He continues to play for the club in pre-season but it is still up in the air whether he will join the Tattershall Road outfit.

Dunn added: “He’s played in a couple of games and it’s suiting us all.

“He’s getting fitness and the lads are learning all the time from playing alongside him.

“He lives in Leicestershire so travelling is still an issue, but we’ll see what happens.”
