We are delighted to report that centre half Ed Palmer has agreed to rejoin the club following the cancellation of his contract by Truro City FC.

The 26 year old centre half played a pivotal role in the Peacocks’ memorable 2016-17 campaign after joining at the beginning of that season. He began his career at Torquay United and also played for Tiverton Town, Weymouth and Truro City amongst others before signing for Town in the summer of 2016, going on to enjoy a great year and winning the Goal  of the Season award for his FA Cup strike at Barrow. He rejoined Truro at the start of last season and helped them to reach the National League South Play-Offs but now returns to the Viridor Stadium to assist in the Peacocks’ first campaign at Southern Premier level.

Commenting on his Peacocks’ return Palmer said:  “I’m absolutely delighted to be back and can’t wait to get started again. It’s no secret I missed the club and now that I’m back I want to help push us on for promotion. When Rob said there was a possibility of a return to the Viridor I jumped at the chance. I know the set-up well and I’ve got some very good friends here so it’s time to knuckle down and enjoy my football again.”

Head of Football Rob Dray added: “Getting Ed back to the Viridor was an easy decision for me once Matt and I were made aware of his availability. He is technically superb and is great in the changing room, and like Lewis Hall joining us last week, comes from a National League club. Most importantly for us he wants to be here, he understands what we are trying to build and is hungry and motivated to do it.”

Subject to the processing of paperwork Palmer will be in the squad for this weekend’s Evo-Stik League trip to Swindon Supermarine.
