Boston United say a number of professional clubs have been watching their schoolboy striker Tom Hopper.The 15-year-old became the youngest first-team player in Boston history when he came on as a substitute in the UniBond Challenge Cup game on Tuesday. [LNB]Pilgrims officials say due to his age they cannot contract him to the club. [LNB]Joint boss Paul Hurst said: "There's been a lot of interest. When he went on I thought he did quite well. He almost grabbed a goal and put himself about." [LNB]Hurst added: "He certainly didn't look out of place so that's credit to him." [LNB]Hurst says the club is resigned to losing him to another club in the future and admitted: "I think his situation will probably be taken out of our hands, but if we can involve him for the near-future, he's someone we may have a look at and he may add to the squad."
