Goalkeeper Jack Drury has signed Blue Square Bet North forms with Boston United.

However, the nephew of manager Graham Drury will only be used by the Pilgrims in an emergency.

With second-choice keeper Ricky Drury unavailable on Saturday and youngster Sam Vince on duty with the reserves, Drury was drafted in to warm up number one Dan Haystead ahead of the Oxford City victory.

The United manager said: “We had Ricky away and Vinny had a game.

“Jack’s game was called off I so I asked him to come and work with the keeper.

“I put Jack on forms just in case we need him for a midweek game when we suddenly need an extra keeper around.”
Drury was called upon by his uncle last season to play for Corby Town in their clash at York Street.

On that occasion, it took Tyrone Kirk’s late goal – which didn’t even appear to cross the line – to earn the Pilgrims a point.

“He played well against Boston. We’ll put him on cover in case,” Drury snr added.

“He’s having a good season but he’ll only be cover if we need him.”

Drury is currently playing for Harrowby United in the United Counties League Division One.
