PILGRIMS striker Tony Edwards has joined Evo-Stik Division South side Quorn, but defender Tom Ward is confident he can help the club by grabbing more goals.

Defender Ward has scored four goals this campaign, two coming in his past two matches.

And now one finish away from the pre-season target his managers set him, the centre back is keen to keep on finding the net.

“It feels good to get a goal,” he said.

“The gaffers said originally they wanted me to get five this season and I’ve perked up with four so far.

“Another one will do it and, hopefully, I can then go on to get a couple more.”

Meanwhile, Edwards’ loan move makes him the latest player to move from Boston United to Quorn.

The forward has made one appearance for the first team, coming off the bench during December’s 3-0 defeat at Stalybridge Celtic.

Since then, he has been an unused substitute six times and has fluctuated between the reserves and first-team squad.

He is not the first Pilgrim to link-up with the Leicestershire club, managed by ex-United forward Lawrie Dudfield.

Ricky Drury, Adam Millson and Craig Armstrong have been loaned out to Quorn from York Street this campaign, while Jordan Fairclough and Mikel Suarez both signed on after leaving United.
