Danny Naisbitt could be in line for a return to Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division club Cambridge City as cover…..
…..for injured goalkeeper Zac Barrett.
Naisbitt, who was released by Blue Square Bet Premier neighbours Cambridge United in the summer, is still without a club, and City manager Gary Roberts said he had already sounded him out about a short-term deal.
Naisbitt played for the Lilywhites from November 2003 until May 2007, when he signed for Histon. He has recently been linked with a move to Soham Town Rangers, where he would be reunited with former Stutes` boss Steve Fallon.
But Roberts is trying to set up a short-term deal as Barrett recovers from a broken bone in his wrist, which he suffered in training on Thursday.
“He’s going to be out for anything from six to eight weeks, and obviously we need to find someone else for the start of the season,” said Roberts.
“And we need them to be decent as well – Zac’s been one of the best keepers in the league for the last few years and to have him missing unsettles everything.
“I’ve spoken to Danny and he’s keen to help us if it’s right for him and right for us.
“He’s trying to concentrate on his business since leaving United, but it might be right for him.”
Roberts will also run the rule over another keeper – who was released by a Football League club this summer – at training on Tuesday.
However, he said: “He’s likely to sign full-time for another club, so it would have to be a loan deal.
“Danny’s played for all three clubs in the area and served them well, and we obviously know each other, so that may be the best route.”
