Jamie Chandler has completed a fifth signing of the summer after young full-back Keenan Ferguson agreed a deal at The Brewery Field for 2023/24 following his departure from Boston United.
The talented 22-year-old spent time in the Academies at Sheffield United and Tottenham Hotspur in his younger days before joining Boston after starring during a pre-season trial in 2021.
Ferguson went on to become a mainstay in The Pilgrims’ line-up during his debut campaign, operating on the right and the left as they made it to the National League North Promotion Final.
A hard-working defender with the ability to get forward and supply crosses into the box, Ferguson has become boss Jamie Chandler’s fifth new signing of the summer after putting pen to paper.
“This is a top signing for the Club,” Chandler explained.
“Keenan is a player I have played against in the past. I have watched him develop over the last couple of years and he is a fantastic talent.
“Like with every signing we make, his character is very important too and, from the moment we spoke, I knew he was the right fit for the Club. He is young, ambitious and very hungry to succeed.
“He will add big quality to our squad and give us another dimension both in terms of our defending and in the attacking areas of the pitch.
“We’re all very excited about him agreeing to join the Club and we can’t wait to work with Keenan in the new season.”
Ferguson has been handed squad number 19 and his move to The Brewery Field is subject to the usual clearance from The Football Association and National League.
