Striker Michael Moore was delighted to start paying Stranraer back immediately for rescuing him from his nightmare at St Johnstone.
Moore rejoined Stranraer for the same £35,000 for which he departed in August and scored in Saturday's 3-3 draw for the second-top side with Arbroath.
"I am happy to be back at Stranraer and want to help them win promotion," said the 24-year-old.
"The drop from full-time football isn't a problem as I will get a job."
Stanraer had been determined to get their man.
"The first I knew that Stranraer were interested in bringing me back was when the first bid went in a few weeks ago and, at that time, I spoke to John Connolly and he really wanted me to stay," said Moore.
"It was only over the last week or so when he was suggesting that it was more of a choice for me if I wanted to stay or go, but I still had two years left on my deal there.
"Even though I was not enjoying it, I was still trying to work hard for the team.
"I had featured in most of the games for them too. But, despite this, it was clear that the better option for me was to come back to Stranraer."
Stranraer chairman Jim Bark told his club's website: "We are all delighted about Michael returning to the club.
"Michael is the joint season highest goalscorer, up there with Derek Frye, and is just the type of player we needed."
