Boston sign Potter

Boston United have won the race to sign former York City man Graham Potter.

Potter had been offered a deal to return to Bootham Crescent after being released by York at the end of last season, as well as attracting interest from elsewhere.

However, the left-sided player has instead accepted a contract with the Pilgrims.

"He's a player I've admired for some time and he gives us extra options down the left as we've only really got (Mark) Angel and Chappie (Ben Chapman) there," said Boston boss Neil Thompson.

"He's had offers to go to Oxford and Colchester and he could have stayed at York so we're pleased he's decided to come here," Thompson told BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

Potter, 28, had spent three seasons with York and started over 100 league games for the club after previously playing for Birmingham, Stoke, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion.

Meanwhile, Thompson is holding further contract talks with utility man Paul Ellender.
