Dennis Greene is hoping to further strengthen his Boston United squad ahead of Saturday’s trip to Vanarama North rivals Harrogate Town.

The Pilgrims have given a trial to former Crystal Palace, Lewes and Eastbourne Borough striker Bayan Fenwick, who scored during Saturday’s 1-1 friendly draw at Nuneaton Town.

“I heard he was available so I wanted to have a look at him,” said United boss Dennis Greene.

“He’s got plenty of talent and ability and we want to see whether he’s ready for Conference North football.”

Meanwhile, United are also finalising the paperwork which will see striker Mark Jones extend his loan stay from Spalding United until the end of the season.

And if that wasn’t enough to add to Alex Simmons, Nicky Walker, Greg Tempest and Grant Roberts, who all joined the club last week, Greene is also in talks to bring two promising youngsters to the club from Sunderland’s under 21s.

Keeper Joel Dixon needs no introduction to United fans following his successful loan spell this campaign.

And Greene hopes that the young stopper can return to Boston after an expected move to Alfreton Town fell through.

United are also hoping to take central defender Tom McNamee on a month’s loan.

It is understood that paperwork on the McNamee loan will be finalised by the end of the week.
