Peter Bore has joined Spalding United - but Dennis Greene says the utility man’s days at Boston United are far from over.
The former Grimsby Town and Lincoln City man has joined the Tulips on a dual registration basis, meaning he is eligible to play for both sides.
Bore - who can play as a full back, winger or forward - was not involved with the Pilgrims’ squad on Saturday.
And manager Greene explained that was due to financial reasons, with the club recently bringing in Rene Steer, Jake Hall and Indy Aujla.
Greene said: “We’re just trying to manoeuvre the squad around.
“I don’t want Peter to leave Boston, Peter doesn’t want to leave Boston, but he’s non-contract.
“We’ve had to get some money off the wage bill, but hopefully soon Peter Bore will be back at the football club.”
Bore - who scored what is arguably the Pilgrims’ best goal of the season to date, a 35-yard screamer against AFC Telford United - has become the latest in a succession of United players to join the UCL Premier highflyers.
Lee Canoville, Chris Hall, Mark Jones, Lee Beeson, Nathan Stainfield and Jamie Stevens are among the ex-Boston players at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field.
