Boston United have completed the three-month loan signing of Mansfield Town centre-half Lewis Gibbens.

The 19-year-old, who will turn 20 during the loan spell, enjoyed a successful stint with the Pilgrims last season before suffering a dislocated shoulder in the defeat at Spennymoor Town on January 29.

Gibbens scored once in nine appearances for the Pilgrims last season and manager Craig Elliott is delighted to have him back onboard.

“He was superb for us last season and somebody I was always keen to bring back,” said Elliott.

“He has developed even more physically over pre-season at Mansfield and he brings great balance as a left-footed centre-back that is comfortable on the ball.

“He loves to be aggressive in his defending and this signing will give us good options during the months ahead.”
