Lancaster City have signed two players ahead of the trip to Padiham in the Evo-Stik First Division North on Saturday.
The versatile Rory Winters will return to Giant Axe with the Dolly Blues also adding former Bamber Bridge goalkeeper Mike Hale to their squad.
The future of former Kendal man Winters had been unclear having finished the season with City before playing in Canada over the summer.
The defender or midfielder is awaiting international clearance, which he needs before he can pull on a City shirt again.
Darren Peacock’s side travel to East Lancashire on Saturday before hosting Burscough on Bank Holiday Monday.
