....Jermaine Palmer back to Carter’s Park.
The dangerous hitman endured an injury-hit stint with the Tigers the season before last, but is now fully fit and back in the fold.
A much travelled striker who began his career with Stoke City from whom he went on loan to Boston United, Palmer had a spell with Icelandic side Vikingar before turning out for Grimsby Town, Scarborough, York City, Hinckley United and Kettering Town (both on loan) Alfreton Town and Grantham Town.
He then joined Hinckley and Halesowen Town prior to signing for Ilkeston Town for the first time in the summer of 2007. After failing to make the impact hoped for, left Ilkeston in the Autumn of 2007 and played for Worksop Town, Halesowen again, Corby Town, Weymouth and Boston Town before signing for Ilkeston for a second time in October 2009, but soon departed again for Holbeach.
He featured in last night’s 2-2 draw at Louth Town, as did talented triallist Kurt Crossley and a number of other potential signings.
But popular front man Liam Nimmo seems increasingly unlikely to be involved this season, with Holbeach boss John Chand revealing he hadn’t even spoken to him about signing on at Carter’s Park.
Chand is also unsure about the future of midfielder Harry Deane, who only officially signed terms at Carter’s Park last week.
League rivals Deeping Rangers are rumoured to be trying to lure the talented playmaker to Outgang Road – but the Tigers supremo is relaxed on the issue.
Chand said: “I’m pleased to have Jermaine back in the fold. He’s a real out-and-out striker and will compliment Andrew Tidswell, Robbie Harris and Tommy Treacher well.
“Harry Deane has signed with Holbeach, but if Deeping want to offer him lots more money then it’s up to him.
“I’m happy with the squad, but have always got my eyes open if the right player is available.”
