Boston Town’s Jordan Nuttell is now weighing up his options after being offered a contract in Finland.

The teenager - who can play as both a striker and central defender - impressed following a trial with Palloseura Kemi Kings.

Poachers manager Nathan Collins hopes he can hold on to the promising talent, but says he would not stand in Nuttell’s way if he chose to move on.

He told The Standard: “It’s now down to the player, he’s been offered a contract in Finland and he’s mulling it over.

“It’s now up to him to decide whether it’s right for him, or if he wants to progress his career in this country.

“He’s a Boston Town player and I wouldn’t want to lose him.

“But as I said before, I would never stand in the way of my young players. I want to push them on to bigger and better things.”

Nuttell and Holbeach United’s Lewis Sturman were both invited to trial with the Kings who play in the Kakkonen, Finland’s third tier.

The side are managed by former Boston United boss Tommy Taylor.

Both Nuttell and Sturman came through the Pilgrims’ youth ranks.

But while Nuttell considers his future, the Poachers are preparing to face Stewarts & Lloyds Corby on Saturday in the UCL Premier.

Town will face their opponents in back-to-back matches following this weekend’s narrow 1-0 victory.

This will be followed by the Poachers’ UCL Knockout Cup semi-final against Division One Potton United the following Saturday.
