Andrew Boyce has agreed to sign a new 2 year deal with the Imps despite rumours he might be joining up with a former Gainsborough Guru at Scunthorpe UnitedMansfield Town or Chesterfield FC.   The former Doncaster Rovers defender  could have netted the Imps at least £25,000 at a tribunal but manager Simmo is happier to have him than the cheeky alleged asking fee of fifty grand. On 14 Nov 2013 Boyce agreed to join Peter Swann at Scunthorpe in January, a subsequent loan was agreed until Jan 5th on 21st Nov. The undisclosed fee meets a minimum release clause in his contract.

Andrew grew alongside Nat Brown last season and will continue to improve under Simmo’s guidance.  With Miller also able to play in the centre as well as defensive midfield, we could be looking at a back 5 at times just like in the play-off era under Keith Alexander.

Handy Andy sometimes stood alone last season as our central midfield quartet were regularly routed. He also pops up in both boxes at vital times notching 4 goals and nipping countless opportunities for those who would bulge Impdom’s net.

STMI christened Boycie the Beast of The Bank when he arrived. But he is now more than that. Already a hero, his never say die attitude will blossom next to Nat Brown, who can back him, or Tom Miller, up, when they dive in too early. Give it another half season, or so,to round off those rough edges and Boyce may well be plying his trade in League 1 sooner rather than later.  There are a few sides in that League knocking on the Championship door, where the TV money is a very healthy cushion indeed.  Then again, perhaps Peter Swann, who reluctantly had to let him go, may just have to do business with the Imps one more time at least.
