Boston United have clinched the signing of right-back Karl Byrne.

The 23-year-old, who netted the winning goal in the Pilgrims’ opening pre-season friendly against Grimsby Town, has linked up with Craig Elliott’s side following a successful trial spell.

The former Cabinteely and Frickley Athletic defender sat out the Lincolnshire Senior Cup tie against Scunthorpe United on Wednesday with a knock but is expected to be fit to face Grantham Town on Tuesday.

“Karl has shown a real determination and hunger to want to sign for Boston United,” manager Craig Elliott told

“He has played at a very good level in Ireland and in his short stint at Frickley won numerous man-of-the-match awards.

“I have seen a lot of quality in his game and I am very hopeful he can adjust quickly to the demands of National League North.”
