Boston United have snapped up two young players on loan from Notts County.

Jordan Richards and Lartey Sarpong have both joined the Pilgrims on three-month loan deals.

Right-back Richards and midfielder Sarpong will be with the Pilgrims until December 10 initially, and both players have permission to play for United in the Emirates FA Cup and FA Trophy.

Eighteen-year-old Richards is the son of former Pilgrim Pedro Richards, who appeared for United in 1986-1987, while Sarpong, who turns 19 on Wednesday, linked up with County from non-league Bromley to serve his scholarship at Meadow Lane.

Both players are first year professionals and are eligible to make their United debuts against Chorley tomorrow (Saturday).
