Beesley's only Pilgrims goal was an important one personally, helping Boston defeat the Ammies' National League North title rivals Harrogate Town, Salford clinching the title a week later.

The 25-year-old has agreed a three-and-a-half year contract at Bloomfield Road, with the club also holding the option to extend it by a further year.

Beesley has scored 12 goals in 26 games for League One Rochdale this season.

His father Paul Beesley spent a season (1999-2000) as a defender with Blackpool.
