NORTHWICH Victoria have been given a big boost ahead of the new North West Counties League season.

Vics have confirmed that popular winger Brad Lynch has rejoined the club for what will be his third spell at Wincham Park.

Lynch spent time on loan with Steve Wilkes' side on two occasions but he will now become a permanent member of the squad.

Lynch joins Vics in time for the return to pre-season training from Saturday, with the new campaign due to kick off on July 31.
