Lawlor spent two seasons with the Daniels after spells at Boston United and Peterborough United.

Last term he made a total of 51 appearances as Stamford escaped relegation on the final day of the campaign.

Tulips boss Pat Rayment said: “He’s another local, young, hungry player.”

Rayment had not planned to bring in any more signings – despite having funds still available in his budget – but Lawlor fills a place in the squad after Lewis Webb opted to join Peterborough Sports last week.

Spalding assistant-boss Marcus Ebdon added: “Lewis has got a new job where his hours don’t really fit in with travelling around the country to play football on Saturdays.

“So he has decided to go down the route of playing more locally.

“We are always looking to improve our squad depending on who becomes available.

“Overall we are more than happy with what we have got in terms of all the quality coming in this summer.

“We’ve brought in a couple of midfielders in Sam Murphy and Adam Millson who are very comfortable on the ball.

“Hopefully the pitch at the Sir Halley Stewart Field is going to be better for us next season to play football on.

“We want to pass the ball but last term we had to go a bit more direct at home.

“We’ve got a lot of young players now and it’s going to be all about geting the best out of them.”
