Nathan Collins is continuing to rebuild his Boston Town squad, after discussions with two more players.

Last week The Standard revealed the Poachers boss had made seven-day approaches for two unnamed targets.

While Collins was set to open up discussions with a forward on Monday evening, he has already agreed to bring a central defender to the club at the end of the season.

He said: “One lad, a centre half, will be coming to us in the summer.

“I’ve spoken to him and he’s just coming back from an injury.

“He needs a few matches to get his fitness back, so we think it could be best if he stays with his current club right now.”

Despite being hopeful of bringing the striker to the club soon, Collins said he was impressed with on-loan Grimsby Town forward Lee Wattam’s debut.

The teenage attacker came on as a second-half substitute as the Poachers lost 5-0 at home to UCL Premier highflyers Huntingdon Town.

“It was surreal,” Collins said.

“They were better than us and deserved to win, but it wasn’t a 5-0 game.”

Town were in action at Spalding in the UCL Knockout Cup last night.
