Wisbech Town goalkeeper Lea Jordan says he hopes things can go back to the way they were before his ill-fated switch to Bedford Town.
The 28 year old left to try his luck at a higher level with the step four side last month but has rejoined the Fenmen.
Jordan says he felt the chance to play at a higher level was one he could not turn down but he quickly realised the move would not work out.
Jordan said: “I didn’t know anyone at Bedford so it was a surprise (when they approached Wisbech).
“I spoke to a few people and the chance to try and make the step up to a higher level seemed the right idea at the time.

“But, once I started training with them, with my work and family commitments, things got harder and harder. It just didn’t seem to work out.
“I had a chat with Paul Cousins and Dick Creasey and they said what they had to say. Hopefully things can go back to the way they were.”

Jordan made his first appearance since returning to Wisbech in Saturday’s 2-0 win over United Counties League high flyers Yaxley.
He said: “Before the game I got some nice messages from Wisbech fans saying they were happy I was back. I’ve always had a good relationship with them and am happy to be back. I missed the club. I felt a void when I left.
“Against Yaxley, I just tried to keep my head down. There was, as you would expect, a bit of banter from the boys.
“There’s a good spirit at the club and we have a big few months ahead of us.”
Jordan is relishing competing for the number one goalkeeping spot with new signing Andy Hewitt, who has joined on dual registration from Boston United.
Jordan said: “He will be good competition, but I’m used to that from my time at Soham Town Rangers and Wisbech.
“I’m sure he’ll do a great job when he gets his chance. All I can do is keep my head down and keep working hard.”
