Stamford AFC boss Graham Drury has been busy in the transfer market over the Christmas period, two of the of the UCL Premier Division’s most talented players.

The Daniels have signed Sam Hill from Harrowby United and Boston Town’s top goalscorer Jack Wightwick.

Hill, 22, can play as either a defensive midfielder or centre back, and he started in Stamford’s win over Hyde United. As did Wightwick, another youngster with backs of talent, who has scored 17 goals for Boston this season.

Goalkeeper Ashley Timms has left the Daniels after playing just five games.

Timms captain the club in four of the games he featured in. The former Manchester City trainee has been approached by a higher league side.

Timms’ career went off track in 2008 when was jailed after demanding £15,000 from one of Manchester City’s star players after he used his mobile phone to film him having sex with a 19-year-old woman at his home.

He made a series of threats to publish the images if he was not paid the cash.

He was then sentenced again in 2011 over a £70,000 email fraud with Nigerian criminals.

However manager Graham Drury was very complimentary of his impact on the club since joining.

Enol Ordonez, who featured earlier this season, came in for the game at Hyde.
