Defender Jake Wright has joined Boston United.

The centre back ended last season with League Two Mansfield Town after beginning the campaign with National League North rivals Hereford.

The 35-year-old has also featured for Sheffield United, Crawley Town and Oxford United - and is not to be confused with his Pilgrims nameske, also a former Blade.

"I am really pleased to bring in a player of Jake Wright's calibre," manager Craig Elliott told bufc.co.uk.

"Jake has shown in his career that he knows what is needed to be involved in promotion-winning teams.

"Giving us that natural left-sided balance and leadership, he will be a great signing for us.

"Jake's desire to sign for us was second-to-none and I sincerely hope he will be successful for Boston United."

Wright will wear squad number 16 at the Jakemans Community Stadium.
