Fernando joined The Gingerbreads on loan last season from Basford United, winning 3 times in his 9 appearances. He was recalled before Paul Rawden and Russ Cousins arrived at the club.
Speaking after competing the signing Paul Rawden said "When we came Fernando was the name on everyone's lips. He had made a great impression on a lot of people at the Club, so obviously we're delighted to have signed him. He's another player with the experience of the league. He's hard working and creative, and we envisage he will do an excellent job and continue to make great impressions on people."
Fernando added "It's great to be back. Everyone made me feel really welcome last season. Paul and Russ are pretty clear in what we're to expect as a squad. Obviously, I know Greg (Tempest) from Basford but it's going to be good to get to know the new squad during pre-season and give the season ahead a real good go."
