Defender Zak Mills has returned to Boston United.

The 21-year-old has agreed to rejoin the York Street club ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Mills was a member of Boston United’s Centre of Excellence in the mid-2000s, part of the same age group which included current central defender carl Piergianni, reserve team keeper Andy Hewitt and former defender Simon Ashton.

Mills, who can play anywhere along the back line, joined from cash-strapped Histon.

He is the second player to join from Dennis Greene’s former side, following on from midfielder Jay Dowie who made the switch earlier this month after the club announced players were free to look for employment elsewhere.

Mills, who also possesses a long throw-in, made more than 100 appearances for the Stutes and will be eligible to play from a week on Saturday.

He is currently serving a suspension and will miss this weekend’s home Skrill North clash against Gloucester CIty (KO 3pm).

Bizarrely, the defender is the third player called Mills to be signed by Greene within the past 12 months, following on from Greg and Gary.
