Profile

AFC Fylde have secured their second signing of pre-season with the capture of Stockport County midfielder Lewis Montrose.

The 28-year-old put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with the Coasters in May 2017, with the option of a third year.

Montrose joined fellow new boy Jordan Tunnicliffe at the club as manager Dave Challinor continues to strengthen his squad ahead of the forthcoming National League season.

Twice Player of the Year during his two-year stay at Edgeley Park, Montrose began his professional career with Wigan Athletic after rising through the youth ranks with Premier League giants Manchester City.

The defensive-minded midfielder has spent the vast majority of his career in the Football League, enjoying promotion to League One on two previous occasions with both Wycombe Wanderers and Gillingham.

Montrose also spent time playing League football at Cheltenham Town, Chesterfield, Oxford United and, most recently, with York City prior to his move to Stockport, where he was an ever-present last season.
