BOSTON Town have been buoyed by the news that goalkeeper Chris Wright has turned down an approach from Wisbech Town.

The former Arsenal trainee - who played in the same Gunners youth team as Fabrice Muamba, the Bolton Wanderers midfielder currently receiving treatment following a cardiac arrest - opted not to move to the Eastern Counties League side, following a seven-day approach.

Manager Phil Jones said: “He quickly turned it down in favour of staying at Boston.

“He said he’s enjoying his football at the moment, and couple that with the team spirit in the squad, it’s a good place to be.

“Chris also said he likes the noises coming out of the club about next season, and it’s great to be a part of a club that’s showing ambition.

“Since I’ve been at the club, Wrighty has given me 110 per cent in every game.

“Off the pitch his attitude in the changing room is excellent, he is such a positive player to have around the place it rubs off on the other players.”

This week, Town have completed a dramatic U-turn involving Shane Clancy.

The player, released by the Poachers a fortnight ago, has made a return to the side and travelled with the squad to Cogenhoe for their UCL Premier clash last night.

Town are suffering a defensive crisis as Jack Smith and Michael Wood are both facing suspensions after picking up three red cards between them in the space of eight days.

Last night’s match is the first of seven consecutive away games for the Poachers.

On Saturday, they travel to face Stewart and Lloyd’s Corby (KO 3pm).

Midfielder Dane Harper was released by Jones last week.
