BOSTON Town manager Martyn Lakin is looking to add to his squad - stating he is currently moving in on up to four potential targets.

The Poachers - who face Blackstones tonight - added Sam Kirton to their line-up this week after the winger, who formerly played under Lakin at Bourne, made the switch from UCL Premier rivals Sleaford.

There could be more fresh faces in at Tattershall Road soon, but as the club aim to keep within their budget, that may be at a cost to current players.

Lakin said: “We’re hoping to sign a new player this week.

“There are three or four people we’re looking at, some with good experience.

“Hopefully, we can get one or two in soon. But we don’t have a budget like some other teams and maybe one or two will have to move on for that to happen.”

The Poachers have already lost Mark Foster this week.

The midfielder, frustrated at being on the bench, opted to move to Lincoln Moorlands.

“I wanted to put out the right side depending on the team we were facing, whether they were a footballing or physical side,” Lakin added.

“Mark wasn’t happy about being on the bench.”

However, with Kirton, Lakin says he and assistant Rob Speechley know what they’re getting following his spell at Bourne.

Lakin added: “We tried getting him in pre-season.

“He provides good balance down the left hand side.”

Town are facing a hectic schedule with no fewer than eight matches in October.

These begin with tonight’s derby at Blackstones (KO 7.45pm) and Saturday’s trip to leaders Peterborough Northern Star (3pm).

On Wednesday, the Poachers complete a hat-trick of away fixtures at Holbeach United.
