Jamie McGhee hopes to mark his Boston United arrival by giving manager Dennis Greene a headache.

The winger signed for the Pilgrims last night, and has set his sights on becoming a regular in the starting XI.

“I’ve not come to Boston looking to make the numbers up, I want to be playing,” said the former Mansfield Town trainee.

“I’ve played in the Football League and also at Conference North level with Corby.

“It’s my aim to progress back up the footballing pyramid, and I’d love to do that with Boston.

“I’m looking to be a regular in the side. Hopefully, I can show the manager what I’m capable of.

“The club has a lot of good players, so I want to give the manager a headache and a decision to make.”

McGhee has been with home-town club Grantham Town since 2010.

During those years he has shared a dressing room with the likes of Dan Haystead, Kallum Smith, Paul Lister and Ben Fairclough, picking up stories about life at York Street.

And when his teammates got wind of United’s seven-day approach, the current Pilgrims were on hand to pass on some advice.

“It helped me make my mind up when people told me what a well run club it is,” McGhee continued.

“When people who have been at Boston for long periods of time say positive things and tell you it’s a top club then that helps you make up your mind.”
