Defender Marc Welcher set to re-sign for March Town United

FULL back Marc Welcher is set to return to March Town United.

The defender left the Hares in the summer to follow former boss Brett Whaley to Yaxley.

But Welcher has not played for the United Counties League outfit in several weeks - and he has now expressed a desire to return to his hometown club.

Hares boss Paul Crosbie said they were waiting to hear whether Yaxley would waive their approach.

He said: “Marc has asked to come back. He would fit into what we want to do but we’ll wait for Yaxley’s say-so and we’ll do things right.

“Hopefully we can get it all wrapped up. He won’t be available for tomorrow though, I have already named my 16.”

March, who have lost their last six Thurlow Nunn First Division games, host Debenham LC tomorrow.

“It has been a steeper learning curve than I thought it would be.”
