Adam Murray believes new signings Louis Briscoe and Mani Dieseruvwe can help Boston United to end their season on a high.

The two attackers will link up with the club on loans from fellow National League North clubs until the end of the season.

Briscoe, 28, has joined from Tamworth and 22-year-old Dieseruvwe has made the move from Kidderminster Harriers.

“I think we’ve signed two fantastic players in Mani and Louis at this stage of the season, and for the chairman to back us is fantastic and we obviously thank him for that,” Murray said.

“With the run of games coming up it gives us options in that final third.”

Murray hinted that if both impress he would be keen to extend their stays into next season, but he still has plans for a strong end to this campaign.

He added: “We’ve still got an eye on this season.

“We need to end this season on a high, but we want to be successful next season, pushing for promotion.

“So when we reach our targets for this season the focus will go into that.”

Murray is familiar with Briscoe from their time together at Mansfield Town.

He continued: “He’s a player that sometimes in games you think he’s not doing a lot, but he’ll pop up with a goal or an assist. We’ve seen him do it on many occasions.

“He’ll need game time to get him up to his real tempo.”

Briscoe made the move after struggling to find football as regularly as he would have liked at the Lamb Ground.

“I was sort of in for a game, out for a game, in for a game, I wasn’t getting the sort of run of games I need,” the striker said.

“It was getting frustrating. He was honest with me and said ‘I can’t guarantee you games until the end of the season, so if you want to go out and get some then it’s up to you’.

“I’ve known Adam for a long time and I managed to get something over the line.”

Dieseruvwe will not be allowed to face his parent club on Good Friday.
