"I got the call a few weeks ago and it progressed over the weekend.
I had good memories here so it's great to be back.
With a young family it was difficult for me at Mansfield. I didn't really settle there.
You've got to be happy as well. So when this came up, I don't need to settle I aleady know the place."
