KOREY Dyer-Stewart was sent out on loan because he needs to learn the winning mentality of men’s football.
That was the message delivered by Boston United boss Jason Lee.
The Pilgrims manager says he has no doubt Dyer-Stewart has the ability to make a career for himself at York Street, but a question mark still hangs over his toughness.
“Korey is learning all the time and needs to play first-team football,” Lee told The Standard.
“Reserve football isn’t for him right now, he needs a step above that.
“He needs men’s football where it means something. He needs to get that feeling.”
Dyer-Stewart – who was at Burton Albion’s youth academy this time last season – is currently on loan at Sleaford Town, where young keeper Ricky Drury has also played this term.
Travis Munn continues to play for Eastwood Town as he has dual contracts with the Pilgrims and the Badgers.
However, left back Jason Field has left York Street to join Boston Town on a full-time basis.
After spending two spells on loan at Tattershall Road, the United Centre of Excellence product, decided he would get more game time with the Poachers.
He has made two Blue Square Bet North starts this term.
