Time at club: 2008 to 2013
The towering centre-half was snapped up on a free transfer from Hereford United in 2008 and played for the Valiants for five years.
He was named as the club’s player of the year in 2009 and was serenaded from the terraces as “Boom Boom” McCombe.
McCombe, a former striker in his youth, was also a useful presence at the other end of the pitch, contributing sixteen goals.
He helped the club to promotion in 2013 but was released in the summer, joining Mansfield Town on a free transfer.
