Boston line up double swoop
Boston United have signed Leicester City teenager Michael Price to solve a goalkeeping problem at York Street.

Pilgrims' boss Neil Thompson is also trying to secure the services of Oldham Athletic defender Stuart Balmer following a successful loan spell.

Thompson made his move for Price, 19, after losing Nick Conroy through injury.

Conroy, understudy to first-choice Paul Bastock, broke two fingers while warming up for Saturday's win over Exeter City.

Price joins Boston on a month's loan and is expected to be on the bench for their home game against Wrexham on Wednesday night.

Balmer has returned to Oldham after helping Boston climb out of the relegation zone in his two months with the Third Division club.

Thompson is keen to bring the 33-year-old former Wigan and Charlton central defender back to York Street.

Boston secretary John Blackwell said: "Talks have been going on either to bring Stuart in permanently or on an extension to his loan deal.

"Obviously we are keen to have this resolved but if it can't be then we will just have to get on with it," Blackwell told the Lincolnshire Echo.
