TWO MEMBERS of Sunderland’s Under-21 squad will spend the next month with non-league Boston United.

Sunderland have enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the Conference North side over the last year, with several of the Black Cats’ academy graduates joining the club on loan.

Keeper Joel Dixon has spent the past two months with Boston and has now had his loan extended by a further month, despite interest from Conference outfit Alfreton Town.

And he will be joined at the club by centre-half Tom McNamee, who has agreed a month loan, in his first taste of competitive football.
