BOSTON United winger Kallum Smith is set for an instant return to Lincoln United - as the Pilgrims kick off their 2012-13 season with a Lincolnshire Senior Shield clash.

The contest will take place at Ashby Avenue on Tuesday, July 24.

It will mean a swift return to Lincoln for Smith, who left to join United in March.

The contest will kick-off at 7.45pm and is a repeat of the same quarter-final fixture 12 months previously, which United won 3-1.

Boston have also announced their first pre-season date, a trip to Stamford AFC on Tuesday, July 31 (KO 7.45pm).

This could act as either the semi-final of the Senior Shield or a pre-season friendly - if the Pilgrims are defeated by Lincoln.
