Popular winger Ryan Semple has rejoined Boston United after signing from Bury Town.
The 28-year-old is set to go straight into the Pilgrims' squad for Tuesday's Skrill North clash with Workington at the Jakemans Stadium.
Semple was a firm fans’ favourite during his first spell at United - scoring nine goals in 97 games - and was part of the squad which won promotion via the play-offs from the UniBond League in 2010.
After two impressive seasons at Conference North level, Semple was surprisingly released by then manager Jason Lee at the end of the 2011/12 season.
The Peterborough-born wide man joined Corby Town, but despite being one of their players of the season, he could not prevent the Steelmen being relegated.
Semple has spent the first half of this season with Bury, of the Isthmian Premier Division, but has jumped at the chance to return to the Pilgrims and Conference North football.
He has also played for Peterborough United, Lincoln City and Gainsborough Trinity.
Speaking before Semple’s signing was completed, manager Dennis Greene spoke of his desire to sign two wide players.
“It would be nice to have a couple of players who can take people on, excite the crowd and make things happen. We haven’t got too many of those who can get the ball in a wide area and take people on,” he said.
Greene is hoping to sign another wide player before Saturday’s trip to promotion rivals Hednesford and then a central midfielder from a Football League club on Sunday.
The midfielder in question is currently at a another club on loan and is scheduled to play his final game there on Saturday.
