The Villagers’ cult hero surprisingly left the club earlier this season to join fellow North West Counties outfit Northwich Victoria.

He had spent 12 years at Mossie Park, scoring a record 474 goals in 432 appearances, helping the club rise to the Premier Division from the West Lancashire League.

However after little over three months with the Vics, Grimshaw has opted to return to his spirtual home.

Grimsaw said: “I’m Absolutely over the moon to be returning to Charnock. Time away from the club has shown me just how much this club means to me. I’ve missed everything about Charnock.

“I made a massive mistake leaving but I’m back to put things right. Cannot wait to be a part of this special club again, meet up with everyone and of course get out onto the pitch and represent them again.”
