BOSTON Town boss Ian Dunn hopes keeper Peter Cook will remain with the Poachers as they kick off their league campaign.

The stopper was drafted in from Boston Saturday League side Wyberton for Saturday’s FA Cup defeat to Quorn, filling in for Chris Wright (injury) and Ricky Lovelace (unavailable).

And after pulling off a number of good stops and a penalty save, Dunn wants him to pull on the number one jersey as Town host Huntingdon on Saturday (KO 3pm).

“He’ll more than likely be in goal,” Dunn told The Standard.

“I’m really pleased with him.

“He’s come in from local league football and acquitted himself well - he played better than their keeper.”

Dunn is hoping two further seven-day approaches for players he is unwilling to name will come off ahead of the big kick off.

Huntingdon take their place in the UCL Premier after winning Division One last season.

Dunn added: “I think we’ll hopefully get a few more players in.

“Huntingdon will be a decent side and they’ll be confident - but we think we can get a result against them.”

On Tuesday the Poachers are at home to derby rivals Spalding United (KO 7.45pm).

Pat Rayment’s side includes ex-Boston United players Lee Canoville and Franny Green.

Dunn added: “Spalding will be a massive game.

“They’re overwhelming favourites for the league, but we just have to go at them.

“We don’t need to get the players up for this one.”
