Ricky Miller hopes he can fire in the goals to bring Boston United success.

The striker was announced as manager Dennis Greene’s latest summer signing yesterday (Tuesday).

Miller - who finished last season at Stamford - played 12 games for United at the end of the 2008-09 UniBond Premier season, after being snapped up by Steve Welsh.

During that spell, he netted six times to help Boston escape the drop.

And when asked if he could replicate that one-in-two goal ratio in the Conference North, Miller said: “Let’s hope for even better.”

And happy to return to York Street, the forward added: “Thanks to Mr Greene and Boston, great club and great fans.”

Miller marked his home debut back in 2009 with a hat-trick in the 5-0 demolition of Prescott Cables.

However, his most important goal was a well-taken individual effort which earned the points in a 1-0 victory at Hednesford Town.

“Ricky brings along a proven goalscoring record - and you can never have too many goalscorers,” said Greene.

Greene has also agreed terms with a defender, although he is keeping his identity close to his chest.

Meanwhile, former Luton Town, Newport County and Rushden and Diamonds forward Ryan Charles has also been linked to United, after his former club Hemel Hempstead Town wrote he was Boston bound on their website.
