Dennis Greene is hoping to bolster his squad with three new players ahead of next week’s National League North clash at Nuneaton Town.

The Boston United boss has put in seven-day approaches for a striker and central midfielder, and plans to have a third target joining them in his ranks.

Although Greene is refusing to name the players he wants to join his club, he told The Standard: “We’ve seven-dayed two players last week.

“So we’re trying to get them in this week. We’re always looking to improve.

“We’re always looking. I haven’t quite spent all of the budget and I’m trying to get the right players in.

“We’re looking all the time to try and get the right players in.”

Greene hopes to hear from his targets by the middle of the week, but stressed that bringing in new faces is not always a straightforward task given approaches from rival clubs.

“To get the right players is really difficult,” he added.

“Seasoned players at this level and above have options and command decent money.

“It’s difficult but we are trying.

“Ideally, there’s three I want to try to get in next week and before we play Nuneaton on Saturday we’ll hope to have those players in.

“I can’t say who it is but we’re working really hard to get these players in.”

And will fans have heard of these targets?

“They should know both, they’re players of a better level so they should be aware of them,” he added.

Reflecting on today’s FA Cup defeat to Gainsborough Trinity, Greene said: “We haven’t had a great start to the season.

But they’ve showed a bit of character second half.

“If you don’t win football matches then fans are going to be irate, understandably so.

“But there’s no-one more hurt than me today.”
