Mo Adams has arrived at Boston United keen to lay down some roots.
The former Derby County youngster, who made his Pilgrims debut during Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Solihull Moors, is eager for regular football after a frustrating season.
The 19-year-old left the Rams in the summer after his one-year pro deal came to an end, and thought he had found a new club in Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers.
But after that fell through, he now wants to earn some valuable game time with United.
“I trialled at Blackburn and they offered me a pro contract, but they’ve got a transfer embargo so it got blocked,” said Adams, who is now focusing on his Pilgrims future.
“It’s part of football, I have to just keep looking forward.
“I’m at Boston now and the only way is up. I feel I’ve got the potential to do great things here.”
After stints in youth ranks and on trial, Saturday was actually Adams’ senior debut.
He was told good things about the club by pal and fellow Boston midfielder Kyle Dixon, and impressed manager Dennis Greene while performing in the under 21s match against Gainsborough Trinity in midweek, which ended level at 2-2.
“I was delighted to make my debut but the most important thing was the win,” defensive midfielder Adams added.
“It’s a good feeling to know you’ve impressed the manager.
“I don’t see why we can’t push on for promotion now.”
