Dec Bacon returns to Gainsborough

Gainsborough Trinity have confirmed the return of centre forward Dec Bacon from Mickleover.

Since leaving Gainsborough in 2019, Bacon has been a regular on the score sheet for the Derbyshire outfit where he secured a regular starting spot alongside Stuart Beavon, only to see the season curtailed.

The 26-year-old has also featured for Bottesford, Alfreton and Scarborough.

"I’m delighted to sign back at Gainsborough," he said.

"I feel I have a real point to prove after my last tenure at the club.

"I’m looking forward to working under the gaffer and having a fresh start here. I can’t wait to meet up with the lads and get a good run of games!"

Head coach Tom Shaw added: "Dec has stayed in my thoughts since our fixture against Mickleover early in the season.

"That night he pressed the life out of us defending from the front. He was aggressive and made a huge amount of forward runs that really troubled our back line.

"We have been working hard in recent weeks to find the right player to compliment and improve our forward line. In Declan, we feel we have landed what could be a really positive signing for the football club.

"He has enjoyed some successful campaigns with big numbers to his name and we think our style can give him plenty of goal scoring opportunities."

The club has also confirmed that Harry Jessop's loan comes to an end after the Lancaster City, FA Trophy tie.
