Boston Town have bolstered their squad with the arrival of Charlie West and return of Jordan Tate.

Nineteen-year-old West, the son of former Lincoln City and Boston United defender Dean, has made the move to the DWB Stadium from Northern Premier League side Lincoln United.

The midfielder was a product of the Red Imps’ youth system, and a long-term target for manager Gary Edgley.

“Charlie has come in with one eye on next season,” Edgley said.

“He’s a good player and someone I’m delighted to bring in.

“We had a huge rebuild this summer and that’s something I want to avoid again this year. We’ve got a good, strong squad and probably just need to get two or three more quality players in.

“It’s a massive advantage to start a season with lads who already know each other. With the FA Cup starting so early for us we want to be in a position where the lads all know each other so we can start strongly in that competition.

“So it’s great to get another quality player like Charlie in now.”

Tate, meanwhile, has returned to contention following a long-term foot problem.

“Jordan’s been out for about six months,” Edgley added.

“He’s a great player for us. He’s only a young lad but it feels like he’s been at the club forever.

“Its’ great to have him back, he’s got a fantastic attitude and a he’s a talented player.”

Tate is hoping to be fit for selection for tomorrow night’s Lincs Senior Trophy semi-final against Holbeach United (KO 7.45pm).

The Poachers were left without a fixture this weekend as Storm Dennis swept across the country.

They were due to host Peterborough Northern Star in United Counties League Premier Division action.

However, the contest will now be re-arranged.
