Sumnmer signing Christian Dibble wants to establish himself as Boston United’s number one... and he’s already setting his sights on a promotion.

After loan spells with Nuneaton and Chelmsford, the former Barnsley stopper has arrived at the Jakemans Stadium desperate to gain regular match experience.

“I want to play a lot of games and show people what I can do,” said the 22-year-old.

“I just want to be the best player I can for this team.”

Dibble, the son of former Manchester City, Rangers and Wales keeper Andy, added: “I’m very happy to be here.

“It’s a new challenge for me again and I want to show everyone what I can do.

“I want to help the team get as high as I can, get in the play-offs like last year - or possibly higher.”

Dibble kept a clean sheet as Boston kicked off their pre-season friendlies with a 4-0 victory at Boston Town last Tuesday night, before being replaced by Michael Emery at half time.

Emery has now signed a one-year contract with the club, and the former Gainsborough Trinity stopper will also act as Dibble’s number two and coach.

Dibble kept goal in Saturday’s 1-1 friendly draw against Peterborough, with Emery taking his place for last night’s 3-0 defeat to Lincoln City, which saw Dibble rested due to a toe injury.
