Boston Town have signed attacker Aris Placis.

The Latvian impressed boss Mark Angel on trial with the Poachers, where he scored in the recent 2-1 friendly defeat to Skegness United.

Placis was named as the Most Improved Player at Bourne Town last season.

The Poachers have also welcomed the return of Carl Basker, who has enjoyed a previous stint with the club.

Friday will be the deadline to enter Town’s shirt sponsorship raffle.

Ticket packages begin at £40 and the winner will have their business or name on the front of club’s home shirt, with the second prize being the back-of-shirt sponsor.

Deadline is 6.30pm. For detailos call 07943 622959.

Town’s friendly fixture against Langford, which was meant to take place on Saturday, was called off as the visitors were unable to raise a side.

Town will now host Spalding United in another warm-up match tonight (Tuesday - KO 7.45pm).

Angel’s side will end their pre-season contests at Cleethorpes Town on Saturday (KO 3pm).
