"Jake is a like a little brother to me and I know personally how difficult it was for him to leave Accrington, and I know how much this opportunity means to him.
"Jake was always Accy at heart and comes back a much better player than when he left us.
"He knows the league and what it means to play for Accrington and we felt this is something we needed in 2022 along with another two or three signings we are hoping to make.
"With Jake eager to get stuck in and plans both on and off the pitch hopefully 2022 will be a much better year for us. Welcome back Jake."
"Having played and captained Jake during his junior years I know from experience the love of Accrington CC he has.
"He is the perfect fit to drive the club forward in all aspects of playing cricket for Accrington CC in 2022."
"They’ve improved me immensely both on and off the pitch and I’ll always be grateful to them for the love shown to me.
" As many will know Accrington has been my home since day one so today is a proud day for myself and my family.
"I want to thank everyone involved for giving me this opportunity and for believing in me.
"I can see already there’s a new lease of life here and since I’ve been gone some great players have returned.
"We’re all buzzing as a team to get back out there and take our club where we believe it belongs."
