Colby Bishop has joined Boston United - and now he’s looking to cause a few problems.

The striker made his debut in the Pilgrims’ 2-1 defeat to Darlington 1883 on Saturday, after joining in midweek from cash-strapped National League North rivals Worcester City.

The former Notts County youngster made his debut from the bench, seeing a snapshot whizz over the bar and believing he should have been awarded a penalty after being grounded in the box.

And as Boston prepare to host Nuneaton Town on Saturday (KO 3pm), Bishop wants to get stuck in again.

“I’m a big lad so I like to get myself about and get in the thick of the action,” he told The Standard. “I like to cause a few problems when I can get in the box or on the ball.”

Bishop netted seven times in 21 games for City this season, and believes that he can improve upon his one-in-three ratio at the Jakemans Stadium.

After being impressed by the hold up play of Karl Hawley and pace of Alex Simmons and Jay Rollins, he is confident he will soon be on the scoresheet for his new club.

“That’s one reason why I came here,” Bishop added.

“Coming to a club like this I know I can get better and more service than I was used to.

“I can see I will get chances in this team and hopefully I can put them away.”

Bishop joined United after former striker Richard Brodie had his contract terminated by the club.

Meanwhile, Pilgrims defender Nat Brown has joined Hednesford Town on a month’s loan and striker Waide Fairhurst has extended his loan spell at Frickley until April 13.

Nuneaton are currently suffering a slump, ending an eight-game winning run with a draw at Brackley and then losing their past four league matches.
