Returning defender Jon Fairweather admits leaving Wisbech Town helped him realise just how much he actually loves the club.

The popular young centre-back swapped the Fenmen for fellow United Counties League Premier Division Spalding United in December. However, after just two months away, Fairweather has decided to make a comeback for the team he had played for more than three years before signing for the Tulips.

The 23-year-old said: “The main reason for going back was to enjoy my football. Injuries didn’t help but I was frustrated at the lack of game time at Spalding.

“I’m very close mates with the Wissy (Wisbech) lads and just felt that’s where I needed to be to enjoy myself again. I suppose I did miss being around Wisbech. It’s a great club with brilliant fans and the lads are like family. I wouldn’t say it was a mistake leaving to join Spalding but I definitely didn’t appreciate what I had at Wissy. I couldn’t be happier to be back, I’m looking forward to the next couple of months, and the gaffers’ plans for next season are promising too.”

Fairweather, who originally joined Wisbech from Holbeach United in July 2010, is not cup-tied and will go straight into his ‘new club’s’ squad for their huge last-16 game in the FA Vase at Hadleigh United on Saturday.

Joint-boss Dick Creasey said: “I like Jonno as a person and a footballer. He’s the type of player we wanted. He wants things done the right way, he likes the club, and is a great addition.”
