Spalding United have swooped to seal a deal that brings speedy striker Jordan Thomas back to the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field.
The forward, who impressed during a loan spell from Lincoln City last season, has had a change of heart over re-locating to Newcastle.
Thomas will be the fourth striker on the Tulips’s books, joining Andrew Tidswell, Mark Jones and Tom Waumsley.
And chief Pat Rayment feels that all four offer him something different ahead of the Evo-Stik League Division One South campaign.
He said: “Jordan is a great option for us. He knows the club and we know him – and we’re both happy with each other.
“Once he became available again, we moved pretty quickly to get the deal done. He’s got a bit about him and did very well when we had him last year.
“We’ve now got four very different strikers. Jordan and Tom want to learn – and they’ll certainly be able to do that with Andrew and Mark at the football club.”
Thomas follows Gareth Jellyman, Peter Bore, Michael Leary, Julian Kelly, Kern Miller, Waumsley and James Cullingworth in switching to the Sir Halley.
He was well-regarded at Lincoln City and remains the club’s youngest-ever first team player, aged 16 years and 71 days.
