Striker Adam Boyes will be looking to rekindle the form that made him one of the Blue Square Bet Premier’s most feared striker last term.
The big frontman netted 16 times in his 43 outings as the Bluebirds comfortably achieved a mid-table finish in the Conference.
It is a different story this time around though with the bookmakers expecting the North West outfit to struggle having lost a lot of key players in the summer.
But in Boyes they have a striker who can be a real matchwinner on his day. The 21-year-old is equally adept with the ball at his feet or in the air and has the strength to outmuscle opponents and the finish to match.
Beginning his career with York, Boyes attracted the attention of Manchester United as a youngster but it was Scunthorpe who secured his services in a six-figure transfer in July 2009.
His Iron career was limited to just one appearance in two seasons, that being a League Cup victory over Sheffield Wednesday in August 2010.
During his time at Glanford Park, Adam enjoyed loan spells back at first club York, as well as Kidderminster Harriers and was impressing onlookers with his appearances for the Iron’s reserve side.
This earned the forward a move to Boston in January 2011 and he scored six goals in just 19 outings but missed a vital penalty as the Pilgrims were edged out by Guiseley in the Blue Square North Play Off semi-finals.
Surprisingly released from the Lincolnshire club, Adam switched coasts and made an immediate impression at Holker Street with nine goals in his first eleven outings. Adam has also been on the scoresheet for the Bluebirds this season, netting in a 3-1 home defeat to Alfreton back in August.
