Fans of Yate Town are delighted with the news that Nick Peare is making a shock return to the club, only a month after signing for a new side.

In a u-turn decision, captain Nick Peare is back on the books at Yate Town after signing for Cirencester Town in June, in a move that unsettled the Southern Premier league side.

The new management announcement of Paul Michael and his coaching team, altered the midfielders decision.

Peare said: "I had a big think about everything. And I’ve always taken the advice and given the advice of play as high as you can, for as long as you can.

"I’ve got a lot of respect for what John is building at Cirencester Town, and I have no doubt they’ll be successful under his leadership, but I want the challenge of this league, it’s tough week in week out.

"After speaking with Paul, I am looking forward to building on the last couple years under Polly.

"Paul has a clear philosophy that I’m excited to be a part of."

New manager Paul Michael echoed the excitement of the signing, saying: "Nick has been a huge player for Yate over the last couple of seasons and the first thought in my mind when I was appointed was that I wanted to try and bring Nick back.

"He's such a talented player but he also brings a winning desire and leadership on and off the pitch.

"Nick has heard our plans for the season and we are delighted he wants to be part of it, I can't wait to work with him".
