Ilfracombe Town have brought midfielder Mark Clunie back to the club.
Clunie, a former Bristol City trainee, played more than 100 games for Ilfracombe before joining Wellington last year.
He rejoined Combe last night and they will be hoping he can breathe some life into a season that reached a low point with a 2-0 defeat to Bishop Sutton, the Toolstation Western League Premier Division’s bottom side, on Saturday.
Ross Middleton, the Ilfracombe manager, said: “It’s great to have him back.
“He seems to have been around the club for years and it’s strange that at 21 he comes in as an experienced player.
“He adds genuine quality to the squad. Technically he’s top class, he’s a tough little cookie and he loves a screamer from 30 yards.”
Middleton was angry that the impressive 1-1 draw with leaders Larkhall Athletic was followed by Saturday’s defeat to Sutton who scored twice in the last 20 minutes through Joe Dakwa.
“We didn’t perform in any way,” said Middleton.
“If we had half the attitude we had the week before, we would have won.”
