Dion-Curtis Henry’s Boston United loan spell has come to an end - but the teenager says he leaves the Jakemans Stadium a better keeper.

The 19-year-old was due to stay with the Pilgrims until New Year’s Day, but was recalled by parent club Peterborough United.

However, after learning he wasn’t going to return to Boston, Henry paid tribut to the club with a post on Twitter.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Boston United for my loan spell, thoroughly enjoyed it,” he began.

“Boys and coaches were nothing but supportive and made me feel very welcome.

“Fans at Boston were, and are, exceptional.

“I definitely gained a lot of experience which I believe has helped me progress as a goalkeeper.

“I wish the boys and the club all the best in the future.”

Henry isn’t the only player to leave the Jakemans Stadium following the departure of manager Dennis Greene last Monday night.

Attacker Cameron Johnson saw his contract cancelled last week.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Pilgrims from Rossington Main in the summer of 2015, made 29 appearances for the Pilgrims, 27 of which were from the bench.

Meanwhile, young winger Liam Adams is gaining some experience with United Counties League Premier Division side Wisbech Town.

Boston lad Adams, who joined in the summer after leaving Nottingham Forest’s academy, is dual registered and continues to represent United’s youth teams.
