Boston United beat Boston Town 6-1 yesterday, but it was the team sheet rather than the scoreline which was of more concern to most Pilgrims fans.

With Carl Piergianni and Mark Jones yet to report back for training, United had some holes in their squad to fill.

Here, The Standard gives you the lowdown on the hopefuls who would love to make a name for themselves at the Jakemans Stadium...

MATT URWIN - The goalkeeper is on trial at United after leaving Bradford City, where he was the number two stopper. Was part of the Bantams squad which won 4-2 at Chelsea in the FA Cup last season, but didn’t make it off the bench. With United’s hopes of landing Sunderland’s Max Stryjek on loan seemingly dead, and Sam Vince on trial at Chester, there is a vacancy or two.

CAMERON DEAR - Although he played as a makeshift fullback at the DWB Stadium, Dear is traditionally a midfielder. Has previously been on the books of Mansfield Town.

JAY ROLLINS - The exciting attacker is looking to step up to the National League North after previously playing for Armthorpe Welfare. Could the young talent become a valuable squad member for Boston?

HARRY LIMB - You wouldn’t have guessed the youth team product is only 15 by his direct attacking style, frame and willingness for the combative side of the game. He has previously had trials with Leicester City but has reached an agreement to pen a deal with the Pilgrims on August 1 - his 16th birthday. Dennis Greene believes the youngster isn’t far from a competitive first-team debut.

DYMON LABONNE - The winger was previously on the books of West Ham United. He is now a free agent and eager to impress in amber.

ALEX BROWN - Another goalkeeper. Brown has previously trialed with United and played in a reserve team fixture. He is now hoping it will be second-time lucky.

JULIAN BENNETT - Although not involved yesterday, the former Nottingham Forest left back has been training with the club and looks set to be offered a deal, if he can prove his fitness.
