David Norris believes that familiar faces are helping him settle back into life at Boston United.
The midfielder left for a career in the Football League 18 years ago, before a return last last month.
But the daunting prospect of walking into a new dressing room was made easier by the fact he was linking up with former Shaw Lane teammates Spencer Harris, Ryan Qualter and Nicky Walker.
“That’s always nice, knowing a few faces,” he said.
“It helps you settle no matter where you’ve been, it’s always daunting going into a new changing room.”
But Norris was even happier to bump into staff members and supporters who he remembers from his first stint.
He added: “It was nicer to see some of the old faces.
“It was great to see so many people I remembered, it’s a family club here and it was great.”
Norris joined United without playing any football this season, but expects to be up to pace soon.
He said: “It’ll take me a couple of weeks to get up to speed but I’m not too far off.
“I’ve not trained and played a game since last season, it gets football into me and hopefully I can help the team.”
