Heading into last weekend’s scheduled game at home to Brackley there were injury doubts over Boro aces Lewis Maloney (hamstring), Ryan Watson (groin) and Luca Colville (hamstring), as well as Dan Bramall through illness, so the recruitment is a welcome boost for Jono Greening’s play-off chasers’ squad.

Boro’s game with Brackley was one of many postponed due to a frozen pitch last Saturday, the Seadogs’ next test being a trip to tackle Bradford Park Avenue this coming Saturday.

A club statement said: “The midfielder, whom Jono Greening and Michael Ingham wanted to sign back in the summer of 2021 as one of their first signings, before signing for Matlock Town, is now a Boro player.

"The 26-year-old, box-to-box midfielder has played with Jonathan Greening and Michael Ingham at Tadcaster Albion has since gone on to play for Gainsborough Trinity and Matlock Town.

"Wiles started his career with his hometown club at Rotherham United, before heading to Stocksbridge Park Steels and Buxton.

"We would like to thank Matlock Town and Keith Brown for their cooperation in the deal.
