From Lincs Echo 

BOSTON UNITED'S collection of trialists will be given the chance to impress when the Pilgrims begin their pre-season campaign at Arnold Town tonight (7.45pm).

Joint-managers Jason Lee and Lee Canoville have been running the rule over up to 10 trialists since pre-season began earlier this month.

They include former Boston players Julian Joachim, Jamie Stevens, Matt Hocking and Liam Parker.

"We will probably give everyone 45 minutes at Arnold," said Canoville.

"Obviously it's difficult to impress in 45 minutes so we will give most of the lads a couple of games.

"We want to give everyone, including the existing players, a run-out.

"The fitness levels have been good so far. The lads have looked sharp and we could not have asked anymore of them so far, but it is in games when you really find out about players.

"We know some of the players already, but not so much about others and tonight will be a good test."

Central defender Parker has been one the ex-United players to join up with the squad.

The former Stamford player left York Street 12 months ago nursing a long-term back injury, but has been working his way back to full fitness.

"I know what he can do having played with him during his first spell at the club," said Canoville.

"He had a back injury, but he's looked very fit so far.

"We want to see if he is back at the level where he was before."

The midfield area will be of particular interest to Lee and Canoville.

Following the departure of Anthony Church to Grimsby, Boston are looking to sign at least two middlemen to help fill the void.

They are also in the market for at least one new striker after the club withdrew Spencer Weir-Daley's contract offer.

Mikel Suarez and Marc Newsham are the only strikers on the club's books, although Mickey Stones, who broke into the first-team at the end of last season, is hoping to earn a contract.

Stones is likely to figure tonight against an Arnold side managed by former Boston striker Martin Carruthers – a friend of Lee and Canoville.

Lee briefly played for the Northern Counties East League Premier Division side last season.

Meanwhile, Boston Town have signed former Pilgrims Chris Wright and Shane Clancy.

Both are set to be in involved when the sides meet at Tattershall Road on Saturday (3pm).

Prefer to make comments after I've seen the players in action.

Car of four from Colwick travelling the six miles ! Will be good to see who some of these trialists are, and it's only £4 to get in:

Ha ha, Farmer Dan ! That was a classic cartoon from "Behind Your Fences " fanzine. He used to ride into town on his tractor and shout abuse at the players from Spain Lane. Shouting before kick off :"Boo! bloody rubbish Boston" being the catchphrase.  A pretty well observed character !

2-1 Canoville. Seems holgrove had an impact in the goal too.
