Nicky Walker wants to make Boston United his home, sweet home.

The winger has found the net three times in two matches since linking up with the Pilgrims on New Year’s Day.

And yesterday he pledged his immediate future to the club, signing a contract with Boston until the end of the season following the termination of his Rotherham United deal by mutual consent.

This season has seen the 20-year-old live something of a nomadic existence so far, with the Pilgrims being his fourth club of the campaign.

As well as being on the books of the Millers he has also had loan spells at Wycombe Wanderers and Grimsby Town.

But now he is looking to put down some roots.

“This season, this the fourth place I’ve played now,” Walker told The Standard.

“I haven’t had as much playing time as I would like, but hopefully this is the chance for me to get it now and show people what I can do.”

In order to get his career back on track, Walker has dropped down four levels from the Championship to the Vanarama North.

But he is already planning a bright future for both himself and his new employers.

Walker added: “I’m not knocking the level or standard, but I didn’t want to drop because obviously Rotherham’s in the Championship. I didn’t want to come down.

“But I have to look after myself and play matches.

“Hopefully, I can help Boston up the table and myself up there too.”
