THE ever-evolving Boston United line-up has changed yet again with Ben Wilkinson and Sam Mulready both parting company with the club.

Both players learned they were no-longer in the plans of managers Jason Lee and Lee Canoville after Saturday’s loss at Solihull.

Midfielder Wilkinson, 24, was snapped up after impressing in pre-season.

He is the son of former England manager and United legend Howard, who led the club to consecutive Northern Premier League success during his player-manager stint in the seventies.

Wilkinson junior made 10 starts for Boston, plus two substitute appearances.

But the former Hull City and Tamworth man struggled to make a place in the centre of the park his own, often being used as a makeshift right back.

In fact, six of his 12 appearances for the Pilgrims came in that position as United suffered an injury crisis in that position.

He was an unused substitute on Saturday.

Mulready,18, departs after his month-long loan spell from Grimsby Town came to an end.

His debut saw United hammered 6-1 at Altrincham.

His other starts were victories over Histon and Workington, although he didn’t make the scoresheet during his spell at York Street.

But with fellow loanee Jordan Burrow making a greater impact, Mulready was an unused substitute in the past two contests.
