BOSTON United have snapped up two more strikers ahead of deadline day tomorrow (Thursday).

Too many chefs may spoil the broth, but Jason Lee and Lee Canoville must think that you can’t have enough strikers as they have signed up former Notts County teammates Stef Frost and Lawrie Dudfield - taking the number of strikers on the club’s books to a staggering eight.

Dudfield, 30, is no stranger to York Street fans, having spent the 2005-06 season with Boston.

In that League Two campaign he scored five times in 24 starts and 17 substitute appearances.

Dudfield - who was without a club - also played alongside Lee and Canoville at Notts County.

He has also played for Hull City and Southend United, as well as Chelmsford City and Cork City, but has been without a club since leaving Corby Town in 2009.

Frost is another former County teammate of Lee and Canoville and has been signed from Evo-Stik Division One South outfit Rainworth Miners Welfare.

The 21-year-old has also turned out for Gainsborough Trinity, Matlock Town and Hucknall Town.

United now have eight strikers on their books - Frost, Dudfield, Lee, Marc Newsham, Adam Boyes, Danny Davidson, Spencer Weir-Daley and Miles Hunter.

This equates to more than a third of thesquad, with two keepers, six defenders and five midfielders also currently on the roster.

As former managers Steve Evans plundered the Scottish Premier League for talent and Rob Scott and Paul Hurst built much of their team around the players they knew from their time at Ilkeston Town, Canoville and Lee seem to be taking inspiration from their time at County.

But maybe a return to the boardroom for County chief executive Jim Rodwell may be a step too far?
