Former Barbados national football captain Emmerson Boyce is back.

Four years after calling time on an illustrious 18-year career in which he won the coveted FA Cup trophy in 2013 with then English Premier League basement boys Wigan Athletic, the right-back has come out of retirement to sign for non-league side Ashton Town.

The stunning news comes after chairman Mark Haynes jokingly invited the 40-year-old to join the Greater Manchester Club.

Boyce’s signing means that he will rejoin another ex-Wigan and Tottenham Hotspur defender, Pascal Chimbonda, to add to an already exciting defence for an Ashton Town team seeking promotion to the English Football League. (AG-B)
