Arnold is first summer signing

By Craig Singleton

Boston United manager Craig Elliott has made his first summer acquisition by boosting his playing and backroom staff in one move.

Nathan Arnold (30) has agreed to join the Pilgrims on an initial one-year deal in a dual playing and management role.

Arnold left neighbours Lincoln City on Friday after a successful spell with the Red Imps, which included promotion from the National League and a run to the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup in 2016-2017.

He also won promotion from the National League with Grimsby Town a year earlier.

Reflecting on Arnold’s arrival, Elliott said: “Persuading Nathan to join us is a real coup for the football club given the other offers he had, but his enthusiasm to join Boston United was evident.

“Nathan will play a key role on and off the pitch for us and I have offered him the opportunity to become an integral part of my management staff. We have had good discussions and I am looking forward to working closely with him.

“It is an exciting move all-round and kicks off our summer recruitment in style.”
