WE would like to welcome former Cambridge United defender Richard Tait to the club, who becomes summer signing number five.
The 25 year old was part of the The U's promotion and FA Trophy winning campaign in 2014 and was an ever-present for the League 2 side last season.
He started Tout at Ashton-under-Lyne side Curzon Ashton, but signed a youth contract at Nottingham Forest.
He later went out on loan to Conference side Tamworth, before making the move permanent the following season.
He signed for Cambridge in 2013 and went onto make 35 appearances during their successful campaign.
Richard will meet up with his new team-mates on Wednesday when the Mariners return for pre season training.
