Former Salford City captain Chris Lynch is back with the Vanarama National League North club after leaving in May for Australia.
Lynch left the Ammies after two successful years at Moor Lane to join Australian National Premier League Victoria 2 division side Murray United.
Lynch signed for Salford during the summer of 2014 having previously been club captain at neighbours Ashton United.
He had started his career with Wigan Athletic before moving into non-League football with Altrincham and Hyde United, followed by a spell in Australia with Sorrento.
Upon his return to the UK, Lynch signed for Ashton and was a key member of the side who made it to the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division play-offs.
Salford`s then-boss Phil Power brought Lynch to Moor Lane in June 2014 and immediately installed him as captain of a side put together to launch an assault on the NPL First Division North title.
Lynch made his debut on the opening day of the 2014/15 season when a Gareth Seddon hat-trick helped Salford on their way to a 4-1 win.
Leading by example right from the start of his time with the Ammies, the skipper went on to make a total of forty-six league and cup appearances during that season and in total would make eighty-four league appearances, scoring 9 goals, along with thirteen games in Salford’s headline-grabbing FA Cup campaigns.
