Dominic Knowles is more than happy to be reunited with Frank Mulhern - describing the new Boston United attacker as ‘something different’.
Mulhern made his Pilgrims debut in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Kidderminster Harriers, after arriving on loan until the rest of the season from National League Stockport County.
And the 22-year-old settled into his new environment quickly enough, providing two assists for former teammate Knowles, who netted both goals in the victory.
“I played with Frank for a bit at Harrogate, so I knew him briefly,” Knowles told The Standard.
“He had a really good season last year with Stockport.
“He’s a real handful and he’ll keep chasing balls down. He got two assists for me, so I can’t complain.
“He’s a good addition, something different to what we’ve got.
“And when new players come in it’s always good to have someone who brings something different.”
Mulhern was County’s second-leading scorer last season as they won the National League North title, also finding himself on the scoresheet as the Hatters won 3-1 at York Street last March.
Former Ireland under 19 international Mulhern was played in a wide position against Harriers and impressed Craig Elliott.
“I felt slightly sorry for him as it’s not his perfect position,” the manager said.
“But we worked on it in training and he’s played there before.
“He is what he is, he’s robust and hard working. He got a couple of assists and he’s a good player.
“I like those types of players, who give everything, even if they’re having bad games.
“He’s so physical and hard working, and he’s a tough lad as well, which I like in a player.”
