Boston Town boss Nathan Collins believes his new signings will be willing to go those extra miles for the club.

Last week the Poachers revealed that they had snapped up Callum Walker and James Petronzio.

Both are midfield players.

Walker, 19, is a Skegness-based youngster who has previously played for Collins within Grimsby Town’s youth set-up and Petronzio, 22, has previously played for Grimsby Borough.

“They’re bonus signings really,” Collins (pictured) told The Standard.

“We more or less had the squad we wanted, but then these two became available.”

The duo join a number of the Poachers squad in coming from the north of Lincolnshire.

But as someone who once turned out for Boston while living in the Grimsby area, Collins, a former Town midfielder, thinks the travelling won’t be a problem.

He said: “It can feel like a trek driving to Boston if you’re on your own.

“But if you share the journeys with your mates it’s different, you talk football and get ready for the game.

“When I was playing at Boston I’d share cars with Goody (Paul Goodhand) and Jon (Rowan) and it wasn’t a problem.

“It works out better when you have lads who can travel together.

“We’ve got a car full from Grimsby way, a couple of lads in from Skegness and some players from Boston, which works out well for the club.”
