Jack Parter is back at Tonbridge just a few months after leaving for Welling.
Steve McKimm moved for his old left-back after releasing summer signing Jey Siva.
Parter left Longmead to try his luck in National South but didn’t play a league game for the Wings and found himself loaned out to Kingstonian.
Angels boss McKimm said: “He wasn’t given a chance at Welling. He got injured and couldn’t get in their side.
“He wants to play, he became available and I decided to go for it and bring him back to the club. We know what he’s about and he knows what we’re about, so it makes sense.
“I understand why he left in the first place because every player wants to play as high as he can.
“If a player makes that call and goes away and plays regularly, then you take your hat off to them.
“Jack, in my opinion, is good enough to play in National South but he wasn’t given that opportunity. That was the only reason he left, to play at a higher level.”
Parter replaces Siva, whose move to Tonbridge fell flat.
McKimm said: “It just didn’t seem to be working. Football can be a ruthless business at times and, as a manager, you have to make these decisions.
“I’m not someone who’s renowned for getting rid of loads of players but when the time’s right, so far I’ve been right in what I’ve done. Time will tell if I’m right this time once Jack starts playing.”
Tonbridge go for their first Bostik Premier away win of the campaign at Burgess Hill on Saturday and host Dorking at Longmead on Tuesday night.
