Teenage target man Sam O’Malley is the latest player to join Boston Town.

The 19-year-old loanee is on the books of Grimsby Town, put has recently completed a work experience stay with Scarborough Athletic in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South.

“Sam is a god player who offers us something different,” said Town manager Nathan Collins.

“Sam holds the ball up well and can score goals, he’s an impressive player.

“He’s definitely someone we’re looking at with an eye to next season.”

Collins originally brought a 15-year-old O’Malley (pictured) to the Mariners from Hull City’s academy when he was heading up Grimsby’s youth department.

He also currently has fellow Grimsby youngster Lee Wattam on loan at Tattershall Road.

“It would be silly of me not to use my connections up there,” Collins admitted.

“The two players complement each other well, because Lee has exceptional pace.

“But there are also other players we’ve got who can play up front as well.”

Midfielder Paul Jones has left to join Louth Town after finding opportunities hard to come by.

The Poachers are now hoping striker Josh Ford will remain at the club after league leaders Spalding United put in a seven-day approach.
