News from Manager Mark Morsley that he had captured the signature of a former AFC player and thus his return to the King's Marsh Stadium.
Local lad attacking midfielder Ryan Horne is the man in question and the twenty-two year old returns for a second spell with the club. In his first time at AFC he made twenty-one appearances and scored once.
He was with Cambridge United when he first played on loan in January 2014 and scored on his debut away at Harlow Town. He stayed with AFC until the end of the 2013/14 season before returning to Cambridge and signing a two year contract with them.
Illness prevented him playing too many games and late in 2015 he had loan spells at both Soham Town Rangers and St Neots Town. Despite making a first team appearance for Cambridge he was released and played the entire 2016/17 season with Soham Town Rangers and was named their Player of the Year.
In July 2017 he had left and signed for Southern Premier League side St Neots Town where he played until today when he re-joined AFC. He will train with his new team mates on Thursday and be in the squad that faces Dereham Town at home on Saturday.
