Teenage striker Jordan Nuttell has joined Boston Town.

The 18-year-old agreed to leave Boston United for Tattershall Road after training with the Poachers last night.

The forward, who can also fill in as a central defender, was a product of the Pilgrims’ youth system.

Town boss Ian Dunn told The Standard: “We’re delighted to get him on board.

“We know he’s got quality and the lad just wants to play football.

“Hopefully, he can come in, play regular football, get some goals and do well for us.

“He needs to be playing, and we can offer him that.”

Nuttell made four first-team appearances for United last season, all from the bench.

His first-team debut came in the Lincs Senior Shield victory over Stamford.

He then made Blue Square Bet North appearances against Colwyn Bay, Worcester City and Bradford Park Avenue.

Nuttell rejoined the Pilgrims this summer, but did not make an appearance in a competitive match.

He follows in the footsteps of dad Micky and uncle Derrick who have both also played for both United and Town.

The forward will also be a like-for-like replacement for Mickey Stones, who is sidelined with a knee problem.
