Pepper back with Hares

Former March Town skipper Luke Pepper is set to rejoin the club after quitting Yaxley this week.

Pepper left the Hares in the summer to follow manager Brett Whaley to the UCL Club and played in their 2-0 defeat against Huntingdon last Tuesday night.

March boss Paul Crosbie said: “Luke contacted me this week about returning to the club and we are delighted to have him back. He is coming back for the right reasons and his arrival will be a big lift for the club.”

Crosbie is hoping that Pepper will be available for tomorrow’s game against Swaffham if Yaxley agree to waive the 28-day ruling after Ash Brand left them to rejoin March last week.

March Town have been drawn at home to Wisbech Town in the Cambs Invitation Cup quarter-finals on January 8 (7.45pm). The clubs have already met twice this season resulting in two wins for Wisbech.
