Defender Scott Garner has joined Boston United... and could be in action for the Pilgrims as early as tomorrow.

The former Mansfield Town, Grimsby Town and Lincoln City defender has joined on a six-month loan deal from Cambridge United.

He will remain with the York Street club until January — and is set to run out for Boston in tomorrow’s friendly at Lincoln United.

The 23-year-old former Leicester City trainee has also turned out for Ilkeston Town.

“Signing Scott is a real coup and we have had to be patient to get our man,” said United boss Dennis Greene.

“It has once again demonstrated that you have to wait for quality signings on some occasions.

“I must thank Cambridge United for their assistance in helping the move taking place.”
