Dennis Greene is hoping to reveal some new signings this week - after admitting his Boston United squad needs a massive overhaul.

Top scorer Marc Newsham, captain Ian Ross and forward Spencer Weir-Daley have penned deals for next season, with a number of further offers on the table.

However, Greene believes he must bring in up to seven new first-team regulars to improve on this season’s disappointing 16th-place finish.

And he wants to strike while the iron’s hot.

He said: “I think the squad needs revamping in general, regardless of what’s happened this year.

“In a sense a lot of this squad have been together for a couple of years and it hasn’t really achieved.

“So I think it’s probably best that the squad gets rebuilt.”

Greene was meeting with an unnamed player before last night’s Lincs Senior Shield final at Gainsborough, and believes some new signings will be imminent.

He added: “There’ll be six or seven new arrivals.

“In general, the players I’m looking to sign will be the starting kind of players.

“We’re speakin to one or two people and hopefully we can make three or four signings straight after the season.”

Greene has confirmed that Martyn Bunce will be his number two next season.

The reserves team boss has been working with Greene since his arrival at the club.
