Nuneaton Town has welcomed back an old face on transfer deadline day, as pacey frontman Donovan Simmonds rejoins the club on a non-contract basis.
Simmonds played for Boro in the 2010-11 season, but left the club when personal circumstances saw him move away from the area. His return to the Midlands follows a spell playing for Dover Athletic.
Boro boss Kevin Wilkin said: "Donovan did very well on his first spell with us before unforeseen circumstances meant he had to move away. He has been training with the team since his return to the area and looks sharp. We will look to take him on a non-contract basis and look to see how the situation develops."
Simmonds’ signing is likely to be the only transfer day action at the Boro, following Dan Newton's loan move to Hinckley United on Thursday.
Once the window has closed, Blue Square Bet sides are only able to sign free agents released by their previous club before the end of the transfer window. Loans can still be agreed from 8th September to 25th November. After this period, loans will only be sanctioned by the Football Conference in emergency circumstances, such as a club being without a player for a key recognised position, such as goalkeeper or left back. Work experience deals, such as Boro’s agreement with Stoke City for centre half Manny Parry, will still be available.
The next 31-day transfer window opens on January 1.
