However he has struggled with form and injury since then, with a broken leg ruling him out for much of last season. He was offered a monthly contract by scunny on proviso that he lost weight, an offer which he rejected.
He now teams up with Corny, whom he played with a brief period at Scunny, and Corny reckons he'll be a good addition to our squad.
"He is a better player than Christian Roberts," he told the Express And Echo recently.
"I don't think he has got that electric burst of pace that Christian had, but he is a far more intelligent player.
"He played against us last season when they won 4-0 at St James's Park and he absolutely destroyed us down the flank."
