Former Carlisle United loan man Marcus Dewhurst is targeting promotion glory this weekend.

The goalkeeper is hoping to help Boston United into the National League.

They take on York City in the National League North play-off final on Saturday.

Dewhurst has played a key part for the Pilgrims in their promotion push since joining them on loan from Sheffield United last November.

And he is set to start in the do-or-die clash which is held at York's LNER Community Stadium.

Boston finished seventh in the table but have come through two play-off games already, beating Russ Penn's Kidderminster Harriers in an eliminator before getting past AFC Fylde.

Fifth-placed York, meanwhile, beat Chorley in an eliminator before winning at second-placed Brackley Town to reach the final.

Dewhurst, 21, had two spells with United under Chris Beech but only featured twice in first-team games.

One of those saw the former England youth keeper make crucial penalty shoot-out saves in the FA Cup first round win at Hayes & Yeading in 2020.

He also played in the Papa John's Trophy against Aston Villa's Under-21s, and has since been on loan to Solihull Moors before his autumn switch to Lincolnshire.

Also in National League North, meanwhile, former United striker Cedwyn Scott has been named in the team of the season.

It follows his impressive goalscoring efforts for champions Gateshead.

In the National League, meanwhile, Blues loan striker Tristan Abrahams will next Monday bid to help Grimsby Town get past Notts County in their play-off eliminator.
