Matt Hocking believes that new signing Liam Ogden can add a spark to Boston Town.

The winger (pictured) re-joined the club on Monday evening after agreeing a switch from UCL Premier rivals Holbeach United.

“We wanted to freshen things up a little bit,” joint-manager Hocking said.

“We deserve more points than we’ve got so far this season. But things haven’t gone our way and we felt it was time to look at bringing a few new players in.

“Oggy’s a good player and knows the club from his time here before.

“He was a young lad back then, in and out of the team, but he’s developed a lot since then.”

Ogden, a former Lincoln City trainee, joined the Poachers as a teenager, before having spells with United’s reserves and beginning this campaign with Holbeach.

While at United, former manager Jason Lee invited him to train with the first-team squad and gave him numerous run-outs in pre-season. However, his only first-team appearance came in Lincs Senior Shield defeat at Grantham Town.

Hocking also revealed Town made an approach for well-travelled striker Tony Battersby.

He added: “I’ve known Batts since we were at Sheffield United together. We wanted him here but Wisbech doubled his money.”
