JASON Lee has given his biggest hint yet that Boston United could re-sign Adam Millson.

The midfielder, currently on trial at the Jakemans Stadium, has impressed Pilgrims bosses Lee and Lee Canoville in the friendly matches at Arnold and Boston Town.

And with the Pilgrims looking to strengthen their midfield ranks - especially with Danny Sleath missing the first four matches of the season as he represents Great Britain at the World University Games - Millson appears to be a suitable solution.

“I wasn’t here when Milly was the first time around, but I heard good things about him,” Lee said.

“I’ve seem him work hard in training and he’s a good kid.

“We want to build a squad of people who want to play here and are desperate to be part of Boston United.

“He fits into that.”

Millson came through the Pilgrims’ youth ranks, being named Youth Player of the Season in 2008 and Player of the Season 12 months later after his first full campaign in the first team, where he made 46 appearances.

However, injury sidelined him for much of the 2009-10 season, earning just two starts - both in cup matches - as United won promotion via the UniBond Premier play-offs.

Trialists Matt Hocking, Jamie Stevens and Alex Thompson have all been told they don’t have a future at York Street.

However, Millson was set to be given another chance to impress in last night’s friendly at his former club Stamord.

United will also continue to run the rule over Montserrat international Jaylee Hodgson.

The former Loughborough Dynamo forward featured at Arnold but missed Saturday’s clash at Tattershall Road as he flew to the Caribbean to play in the second leg of Montserrat’s CONCACAF World Cup qualifier against Belize.

Hodgson scored as his side lost 3-1. He also netted twice as his nation lost the first leg 5-2, taking his tally up to three.

“We’ll have another look at Jaylee,” Lee added.

“It’s unfortunate he couldn’t play (on Saturday and last night), but we know he’s in good shape. He’s gone out to play - at least, I hope he’s not on holiday - and he’s getting experience at a different level of football.

“We’ll continue to have a look at him when he comes back.”
