EXCLUSIVE: Wisbech Town boss Appleby hoping to sign highly-rated Grantham Town midfielder Adam Millson

WISBECH Town boss Steve Appleby is battling to sign highly-rated Grantham Town midfielder Adam Millson.

A host of clubs are believed to be interested in the 20-year-old who joined the Gingerbreads in August after being released by Boston United.

Millson burst onto the scene during the 2008-2009 season and collected all five of Boston United’s player of the year awards as he helped The Pilgrims gain promotion to the Blue Square North.

The Fenmen boss, who put in a seven-day approach for Millson last week, said: “I heard he was unhappy at Grantham so I thought I would test the water.

“Obviously I’m aware a few clubs are looking at him so we’ve got a bit of a battle on our hands.

“He’s a player I’ve admired from my Boston United days because he’s got a bit of everything.

“He’s a box-to-box player, creative and works very hard. He’d be a great addition to our side.
