Former Carlisle United keeper Marcus Dewhurst has returned to non-league in search of first-team football.

The ex-Blues loanee has linked up with National League North outfit Boston United on loan from Sheffield United until January.

Dewhurst, who had two loan stints with United, made his debut for the Pilgrims in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Chorley.

It is a second loan switch this season for the 20-year-old, who had a spell with National League side Solihull Moors earlier this season.

England youth keeper Dewhurst made just two appearances for the Cumbrians in his time with Brunton Park in the second half of the 2019/20 season, and in 2020/21.

They came against Hayes & Yeading in the FA Cup first round, where his penalty saves helped United win the tie, and against Aston Villa Under-21s in the Papa John's Trophy, when he played the first half before being replaced by Magnus Norman.

Dewhurst told Boston's website: "It's nice to be back playing again.

"This is the move I needed just to be back playing and get regular game time again."
