TOMMY Treacher is set for a return to Holbeach United after agreeing a one-month loan switch from Wisbech Town.
The versatile frontman, who left the Tigers in 2009, has managed just three goals this season for the Ridgeons League side but was a big hit during his last stint at Carter’s Park.
Treacher won’t be available for Saturday’s UCL Premier Division trip to Irchester United (3pm), but is in line to make his bow at rivals Boston Town on Tuesday night (7.45pm).
Holbeach boss John Chand told the Spalding Guardian that Treacher has been a long-term target – and he’s delighted to have finally landed his man.
Chand said: “Tommy’s a player I really like. He always gives 120 per cent and will score goals.
“I’ve been looking at trying to sign him for a while and I’m delighted to have him on board.
“We’ve got him for a month, but I’d love to make it longer should the opportunity arise. Steve Appleby (Wisbech boss) has been great and we’ll be happy to keep Tommy as long as he’ll let us.”
It’s a case of one in, one out for the Tigers though, with loan star Simon Mowbray returning to parent club Stamford.
Chand had hoped to retain the services of the pacy striker, who managed two goals in his brief stint at the club, but a starting berth with the Daniels has convinced Mowbray to stay at the Vic Couzens Stadium.
With Mowbray departing, Holbeach’s attacking options could be further boosted by the signing of a prolific Northern Premier Division striker.
No deal for the mystery hitman has yet been agreed, but Chand is “hopeful” of clinching a deal.
