hi foz yes you must connect flow to the existing flow find the flow from the old installation as the pump may not have been on the flow if pump is flowing from rads this is the return if flowing too rads it is the flow, also y our boiler manufacturer may require you to fit an automatic bypass valve between flow return. check all the best john

Your thermostatic rad valves may cause water hammer unless they are bi-directional. If you can connect as existing it might save you some agro.
