Aarran said that he feels ready to return after having an even longer break than planned, after the COVID pandemic another football season.

Aarran said: “The whole idea was to have a bit of a break from it all, but obviously the pandemic has made that a bit longer than what I anticipated.

“It’s been a long time off and away from it, so I’m keen and eager to get back at it.”

The centre half is keen to get back onto the pitch, and wants to help Hinshelwood’s men achieve their goal of promotion.

“My goal is to be a part of the team next season and to help in any way I can, we want to go and get the team promoted,” he said.

Aarran, 29, has also done some coaching work at the club but feels his time as a player is far from over.

“I think after having this time off, I want to play for as long as I can,” Aarran said.

“I’ve had enough time off to reflect and I’m back and hungry for it now.

“I want to try and savour as much playing time as I can. Then, eventually, I do see myself going into coaching and management, but hopefully not any time soon.”
