Boston United have completed the signing of Chorley right-back Matt Challoner on a contract running until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old, who won promotion from National League North with the Magpies last season, has been a virtual ever-present in the National League throughout the current campaign.
With a host of right-back options having come and gone throughout the season, manager Craig Elliott felt it was imperative to recruit an experienced player in that position ahead of the run-in.
“It is clear to see that we have had a few problems at right-back all season, with injuries, recalled loan players and losing Alex Penny unexpectedly like we did,” reflected Elliott.
“It was important, as we come into the most crucial part of the season, to sign a permanent and proven right-back.”
