Stansted FC have been boosted by the return of Bradley Walsh.
The midfielder left the club to join Eton Manor in October, but he has decided he wants to return to Hargrave Park.
"He found out the grass isn't always greener," said manager Terry Spillane.
"He left on good terms and the door was always left open. He knocked on it and we let him back in.
"I'm really happy as on this day, he is one of the best midfielder in the league, so it's good news for the club."

Stansted were held to a goalless draw away at Mauritius Sports & Pennant on Saturday.
"It was like watching paint dry," said Spillane. "They did a job and it was frustrating for us as we couldn't break them down. We played well and I see it as two points dropped."
Stansted started strongly and Billy Ellis fired a shot over the bar from six yards after 10 minutes, and the youngster was then denied by the keeper 10 minutes later.
The Airportmen continued to dominate and Rob Whitfield and Paul Seymour both saw efforts saved by the hosts' keeper before the break.
Stansted carried on where they left off in the second half and Casey Clarke was close from long range, before being denied by the stopper who also tipped over a Seymour free-kick.
The Mauritius player/manager Michael Lesley was sent off after 70 minutes for punching Seymour, but the hosts continued to frustrate Stansted, who had to settle for a share of the spoils.
Stansted have no game on Saturday.
