Ben Futcher has stunned Lincoln City by joining local rivals Boston United.Ben Futcher has stunned Lincoln City by penning a two-year deal with local rivals Boston United.
The 24-year-old was out of contract with The Red Imps this summer and has opted to make the move to York Street.
Futcher becomes the club's third signing in the space of just two days following the arrivals of Noel Whelan and Gavin Johnson.
Boston boss Steve Evans was naturally delighted with the capture and believes his goals threat will prove a major plus for the team.
"It's an absolutely magnificent signing for this club," explained Evans to the Lincolnshire Echo.
"Ben is one of the best defenders in League Two and has been an exceptional player for Lincoln City over the past three years.
"He will be a terrific asset to us not just in defence, but in attack because he scores a lot of goals and is a real threat from set-pieces."
