Former player, assistant-manager and reserve team boss Darren Edey has returned to ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division club Wisbech Town as Gary Setchell’s number two.

Edey was most recently with league rivals Holbeach United but left the Tigers in the last couple of weeks.

In his previous stints with the Fenmen, Edey had been assistant to both Setchell and Dick Creasey and also played under Roy McManus.

He has also played for and managed the reserve side.

Meanwhile, veteran goalkeeper Paul Bastock has dual registered with Evo-Stik League South Premier promotion hopefuls Kettering Town as cover for regular stopper Paul White.

Bastock remains a Wisbech player and will only play for the Poppies if White is unable to.

The record-breaking Bastock therefore returns to the club twenty-six years after his last spell with the Poppies.

The 47-year-old originally made his Poppies debut against Yeovil Town in 1990 under the management of Peter Morris, going onto make thirty-eight appearances before playing for Boston United, St Albans City, Dagenham & Redbrigge, Stamford, Dunstable, and in more recent times Corby Town and Wisbech.

Bastock gained national recognition earlier this season when he overtook former England Peter Shilton’s world goalkeeping appearance record.
