JULIAN Joachim reckons he’s still got what it takes to bang in the goals for Boston United.

The former Premier League forward will spend pre-season training with the Pilgrims.

And the ex-Aston Villa and Leicester City striker says he hopes he can convince managers Jason Lee and Lee Canoville to offer him a return to his home-town club.

“That’s the plan,” he said, when asked if he was looking for a season back in amber and black.

“I want to get my fitness back and hopefully get a deal.

“I’d love to come back, we’ll just have to wait and see.”

Joachim grabbed 16 goals in 48 appearances for Boston during the 2005-06 League Two season.

He netted a further three strikes in as many matches the following campaign, until the cash-strapped club sold him to Darlington for £100,000.

Joachim will have to prove himself in attack as United have already added Boston-born Chris Hall and Mikel Suarez to their squad this week, while Jason Lee and Marc Newsham are also signed on.

Joachim has played little football since leaving Evo-Stik Division One South side Quorn in 2010.
