James Clifton has become Boston United’s seventh signing of the summer.

The Pilgrims have signed the experienced and versatile former Brackley Town and Nuneaton Town right-back.

The 25-year-old, who has appeared against Boston when playing for Oxford City, has put pen-to-paper on a one-year contract.

Clifton won the Southern League championship with Brackley in 2012 — and helped the Saints reach the National League North promotion final a year later.

Commenting on his seventh signing of the close season, Pilgrims’ boss Adam Murray said: “He’s a player that brings experience of what it takes to be successful in this league.

“He’s someone that is multi-functional and can play comfortably anywhere down the right-hand side.

“James will add quality and knowledge to a growing and youthful squad.”
