Poachers keen to keep hold of Ford

Boston Town are desperate to hold on to leading scorer Josh Ford.

This striker - who has grabbed seven goals for the Poachers so far this campaign - has been the subject of a seven-day approach from UCL Premier rivals Peterborough Northern Star.

And following Star’s 2-1 victory at Tattershall Road on Saturday - which saw the Poachers slip into the league’s bottom two - Ford (pictured) now has to decide where he wants his future to lie.

And Town joint-manager Ian Dunn says his forward has not given any clues as to what decision he will make.

“Peterborough Northern Star have put seven days in for Josh and we don’t know where we are with that one,” Dunn admitted.

“We’re waiting on Josh.

“If he leaves we understand why.

“But that will leave us needing to bring in another striker.”
Losing Ford would be a blow for the Poachers, who have found goals hard to come by so far this campaign.

However, Ford - who netted 20 times for Boston last season - has already turned down the advances of Yaxley so far this campaign.

Town will be looking to claw their way out of the drop zone on Saturday when they travel to face Wellingborough (KO 3pm).

The Doughboys have already beaten Town 1-0 in a league match earlier this month, but Boston are seeking revenge at the Dog and Duck this weekend.
