AFC Fylde pulled off another major transfer coup after reaching an agreement to sign Kidderminster Harriers left-back Zaine Francis-Angol in June 2016.

The 23-year-old will joined the club on a two year deal with the option of a further year.

Full-back Francis-Angol was named in the National League North Team of the Year in 2016-17, alongside Coasters stars Danny Rowe and Dan Bradley, after an impressive campaign with Kidderminster.

The Londoner rose through the youth ranks at Tottenham Hotspur before making the move to Scottish Premiership side Motherwell in 2011.

Following a fantastic season with their Under-19s, the then-teenager made his first team debut as a substitute against Greek giants Panathinaikos in the Champions League in August 2012.

After four years north of the border, Francis-Angol joined Kidderminster in October 2015 during their time in the National League, scoring on his first start for the club.

He made 38 appearances for the Worcestershire outfit in 2016-17 as they finished runners up to the Coasters in the National League North.

The defender has also been a regular at international level, with 18 caps for Caribbean side Antigua and Barbuda, for whom he qualifies through his mother.
