Guernsey FC's record goalscorer, Ross Allen, is returning after two years away, the club have announced.
He subsequently signed for Team Wellington, helping them to a first ever Oceania Champions League title and, with it, qualification for the FIFA Club World Cup in the UAE.
Allen came off the bench in extra-time in their first round match against hosts Al Ain, taking and scoring Wellington's opening spot-kick as they bowed out of the competition on penalties.
During his six years with Guernsey, the 32-year-old became a local hero, making national headlines for his goalscoring recored in the process.
GFC have not confirmed when he will return to the island, but fans will have to wait a little while to see their star man again with redevelopment of Footes Lane meaning the club will not play at home until Sunday 6 October, seven games into the new season.
It's a gut feeling more than anything. The timing just feels right. It was a really difficult decision to leave New Zealand, but it was never going to be hard to return to family, friends and a football club I know and love. I'm super excited to be coming back and to once again be a part of the Guernsey FC journey.
