Anderson set for Boro debut

Tommy Widdrington has further bolstered the Boro squad with the loan signing of Stuart Anderson from Salisbury.

Anderson signed on Thursday night after a training session and is expected to be included into the squad to face Staines on Saturday.

Anderson, 25, plays in midfield, and started his career at Southampton before moving onto Blackpool, Ross County, Livingston, Peterhead and Salisbury.

In 177 appearances he has chipped in with 21 senior league goals.

Widdrington said, “I am delighted to have Stuart join the ranks.

“He is someone I have signed before and he brought a consistency all managers are continually looking for.

“He was almost ever present in the Blue Square Bet Premier for me in the 2009-10 season and he played a big part in helping Salisbury City get promoted back into the Blue Square Bet South last season.

“He has featured almost continually the three years he spent at Salisbury and he is looking forward to a new challenge.

“At 25 we are acquiring a very experienced lad with lots of football ahead of him.”

The new manager has wasted no time in putting his own mark on Boro’s squad with versatile defender/midfielder Ronnie Bull, centre-back Alex Lacey and midfielder all in-line to make their home debuts in Saturday’s crucial game.

Meanwhile striker Carl Rook and goal keeper Clark Masters remain suspended for the Staines clash.
