BOSTON United have been dealt a blow with the news that midfielder Danny Sleath has joined Nuneaton Town.
Sleath was expected to sign on for a fourth season at York Street, after stating it was his desire to do so.
However, an offer from Borough, who won promotion to the Blue Square Premier after winning the Blue Square Bet North play-offs, was too good to turn down.
United boss Jason Lee said: “We wish Danny well. He is stepping up a division and we cannot stand in his way.
“We expected the move in all honesty and talks are under way with targets to replace him.”
Sleath helped Boston to the UniBond Premier play-off trophy, UniBond Cup and Lincs Senior Shield during his stint.
