U15 Pilgrims player signs for Lincoln City

23 April 2021

Boston United Under 15 player Sam Edgington has signed with Lincoln City Academy for the 2021/22 season.

Sam has been with the Pilgrims since the start of the season, and we are delighted he will be joining a football league club.

Mark Thompson, YDP Lead at Boston said, “It is fantastic that we are able to help these young players progress in professional football.

We care about long term player development, and believe that our structured programme and professional approach helps enhance players’ development, enabling them to make that step up to compete within the professional football pyramid. Well done Sam!”

Ash Foyle, YDP Lead at Lincoln added, “We are pleased to have offered Sam a place in the Academy, which will see him through his U16s season and be in the mix when it comes to scholarship decisions.

Big thank you to Mark and the rest of the team at Boston who have clearly helped develop his game but also recommended him to us to give him the opportunity to progress. Fingers crossed he can continue to develop and who knows where it may take him!”
