Pilgrims manager Dennis Greene is happy to bide his time in order to finish putting his Boston United squad together.

This week the club snapped up well-travelled left back Netan Sansara.

However, United are still two central defenders and a winger short.

Towards the end of last season - when United failed to win in any of their final five league matches - Greene told fans he wanted them to judge him on the squad he builds, not the team he inherited.

And with that in mind, he is happy to play the waiting game.

“There is no point rushing in to get every position filled early in the summer,” he said.

“Quality players remain available and it is all about biding your time to get them signed.”

Among those ‘quality players’ is left back Sansara.

After two seasons in the Football League with Walsall, the 23-year-old has turned out for Dundee in Scotland, PAEEK in Cyprus and FC Vestsjaelland in Denmark, as well as a spell with Corby Town.

“Netan is a quality addition and it has been well worth waiting to fill the left-back slot with somebody of his calibre becoming available,” Greene added.

United begin their pre-season schedule at Lincoln United on Tuesday (KO 7.45pm).

They have also arranged a friendly with an Aston Villa XI at York Street on August 4.
