Speaking to the Thatcham Town FC website, Bayley said: “I’ve returned as I gained a real connection to the club in the Hellenic League and FA Vase double winning season, where we enjoyed such long winning and unbeaten runs. It was an easy decision for me as I know the club well and have a good relationship with the people there. Some will say I’ve come back home!

“I’ve been watching a lot of match highlights and the teams looks strong – and it’s no surprise where Thatcham are in the league. I hope I can add to the quality already there, and help Thatcham win the league and get promoted.”
