Apart from making us look like a budding Grays Athletic in the amount of players we can sign in one season this move can only be seen as a good thing enabling us the double whammy of strengthening the squad and also bringing in fresh blood for the FA Trophy challenge that we'll be facing in the coming weeks.
Boyes started his career with York City and then had a couple of trials with Manchester Utd before getting snapped up by Scunthorpe in July last year. Yet to make his debut with The Iron he should be a good addition to our side and at least he won't be cup tied.
It doesn't end there either because later on this week we'll have a lad from Redditch Utd, Jack Byrne, joining up with us. It's doubtful that he'll figure in the starting line-up much because he's basically come to us for a looksee.
We should be at almost full strength for the visit of one of the leagues strugglers and should also be expected to gain all three points from the game. You can never be sure with these struggling teams though and Utd will be looking to bounce back from their worst home defeat for many a year following their 4-1 home defeat to Barrow on Saturday.
The only player definitely missing for them is Clint Easton who fractured his right cheekbone and eye socket in the 1-0 win over York City two weeks ago.
We'll be without James Lawrie for us due to his selection for the Northern Ireland U21 side and will be in San Marino for the game.
