Gainsborough Trinity signed Spalding stalwart Nathan Stainfield who now teams up with his former boss at the Northolme.
The 28-year old Welsh-born central defender has spent most of his career at Spalding and Hucknall.
Blues’ boss Dave Frecklington said: “I am really pleased to get Nathan over the line.
“He is a captain, a leader of men, a winner and a fantastic character.
“He brings all the right credentials to the changing room that’s needed to be competitive.”
Frecklington continued: “The squad is really taking shape now and I can’t be happier with the business I’ve done so far.”
