Lincoln City striker Gary King has returned to Boston United for a second month-long loan.In his first spell in January King, 19, scored three goals in six appearances for the Unibond Premier League club.Boston manager Steve Welsh told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "We spoke to Gary and to Lincoln before the first loan ended and said we wanted to retain him."I think he enjoyed his time here and hopefully he can score more goals which would be beneficial for him and us."Lincoln City assistant manager Iffy Onuora admitted that King's chances with the Imps would be limited, with strikers Ben Wright and Geoff Horsfield both close to returning from injury.He said: "We have got options up front so if the loan gives Gary games, that will only be good for him."Gainsborough Trinity were also linked with a loan move for King, but their manager Steve Charles said: "Peter [Jackson, Lincoln City manager] was insistent that Gary should get games all the time."If he came to us he'd be part of the squad and I couldn't guarantee him a start."
