Stamford AFC manager David Staff has brought in a familiar face to help his side see out the rest of the season in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League.
The Daniels have signed central defender Paul Malone following his departure from Corby Town.
Malone played for Stamford for two seasons before rejoining his home town club Corby on transfer deadline day in March 2011.
In May 2012 Malone was named as Corby Town captain by Ian Sampson ahead of the 2012/13 season, having established himself as a first team regular, also earning a trial at Birmingham City.
He was stripped of the captaincy by Sampson’s successor Chris Plummer, however remained as a first team regular for Corby throughout the campaign in the Calor League Premier Division..
On Wednesday the Corby Town website confirmed that Malone had cancelled his contract at club by mutual consent.
On Saturday Malone wrote on Twitter: “Signed for Stamford AFC till end of season, looking forward to this challenge! Will be keeping a close eye on @corbytownfc Good luck.”
Daniels manager Staff said on the Stamford AFC website: “As a club we are continually trying to improve and this is another step in terms of developing things on the playing field. He has the right playing qualities, and attitude and was keen to join us which is testament to the reputation of the club.”
Malone started in defence for the Daniels in their 2-0 defeat at AFC Fylde on Saturday.
