Since initially joining Boston United on loan in July 2013, Scott Garner put pen to paper to secure his future at York Street in the Summer of 2014. Garner has gone onto become The Pilgrims captain whilst making over 40 appearances for the Conference North side.
The 25 year old defender started his career as a trainee at Leicester City where he was sent out on loan in 2008 to earn first team experience at Ilkeston Town before a permanent move to Mansfield Town and Grimsby Town followed. After successful spells at both clubs Garner signed for Cambridge United in 2012 but only made five appearances for the U’s which lead to another loan deal, this time at Lincoln City where he remained for the 2012/13 season. Following a loan spell at Boston United the powerful defender signed a two-year contract in 2014 where he has successfully captained the Lincolnshire side to 4th* in the Conference North.
