BOSTON United look set to bring in a new defender following the release of Kern Miller.

The 21-year-old centre back was omitted from Saturday’s squad which won 2-0 at Colwyn Bay on Saturday.

And yesterday (Sunday), Miller’s departure was confirmed by the club.

“I need to free up some funds to manoeuvre in the transfer market,” said manager Jason Lee.

“We wish Kern well for the future.”

Miller made eight appearances for the United first team.

The Pilgrims still have Tom Ward, Nathan Stainfield, Travis Munn and Matt Wilson available to fill in at the heart of defence, while experienced full backs Gareth Jelleyman and Gary Silk may also be available to slot into that role.

But Lee’s comments make it clear he wants to bring in a new face.

Spencer Weir-Daley set United off to a dream start on Saturday, netting after just 11 seconds.

Marc Newsham put the contest beyond doubt with a 62nd-minute penalty.

Bay’s Frank Sinclair was sent off in the first half for two bookings.

The match signalled Boston’s first win following four straight defeats.
