Boston United boss Dennis Greene has bolstered his squad with two signings from Sunderland.

The Premier League club has agreed to let 21-year-old goalkeeper Joel Dixon extend his loan spell with the Pilgrims by a further month and he has been joined by 20-year-old centre-half Tom McNamee on a youth loan deal.

Both deals were tied up this afternoon (Friday), meaning the Black Cats duo are elgible to go straight into Greene’s line-up away at Harrogate Town on Saturday.

Dixon had first checked in at The Jakemans Stadium at the start of November and has made 14 appearances for the Pilgrims.
