David Ferguson wants to mark his arrival at Boston United by helping the club earn promotion to the Skrill Premier.

The 19-year-old left back has become the third member of Sunderland’s under 21s squad to arrive at York Street on loan, following on from Liam Marrs and Liam Agnew.

And after making his debut during Saturday’s 4-0 victoy over Hednesford Town, the youngster - who had a previous loan spell with Darlington - has a clear idea of what he wants from the remainder of the season.

“Coming down to Boston I looked at the league table, the team and the past results,” he told The Standard. “I want to be involved with the club and play a part in a promotion.”

After hearing about life at Boston while training with the Black Cats, Ferguson was desperate to get a taste of the action.

And he said he loved every minute of his first start with Boston, adding special thanks to the club’s fans.

He said: “To play in a stadium like that, in front of a crowd like that was just unbelievable.

“I really enjoyed it and I love the stadium and the crowd.

“Everything man - I loved it.

“I loved the atmosphere, the cheering. The adrenaline you get from the crowd makes you want to go even further.”

Meanwhile, Sunderland have announced that Marrs, who recently underwent a knee operation, has been released by the Premier League club.
