Simmons has made eight appearances for the Pilgrims during two previous spells over the course of last season and the previous campaign, scoring once in the 5-1 thrashing of Guiseley in January 2015.

However, he has already netted twice at the Jakemans Stadium this campaign, on target for Halifax in their 4-1 victory.

Thirty-five-year-old Hawley worked under Murray at Mansfield Town and joins from Rushall Olympic.

His former clubs include Carlisle United, Preston North End, Colchester United, Notts County, Scunthorpe United, Raith Rovers and Torquay United.

Boston are away at Bradford Park Avenue in National League North action this afternoon.

Kick off will be at 3pm.
