AFC Fylde is thrilled to announce that midfielder Kieran Glynn has put pen to paper on a one-year deal with an option at Mill Farm, becoming Adam Murray’s first summer signing.

Glynn, who originates from Manchester, will join the Coasters from Scarborough Athletic on the 1st of July when his contract with the Seadogs expires, subject to National League approval. 

The 25-year-old steps up to the National League with the Coasters from the North division, where he made 42 appearances in the 2022/23 season, assisting on nine occasions and scoring twice.

Following a good spell at FC United of Manchester earlier in his career, Glynn was snapped up by Salford City before enjoying loan spells with Chorley, Woking, Southport and Scarborough.

With Kieran making a lasting impression at the Flamingo Land Stadium, he signed permanently for Boro in 2020 but now joins the Coasters ahead of the 2023/24 season. 

Upon signing on the dotted line at Mill Farm, Glynn expressed his delight at the deal and said: “I’m over the moon to be here.

“When the season ended for Scarborough and my contract was up, I had a look about, and when Fylde’s name came up, it was a no-brainer.” 

Director of Football, Chris Beech, added: “We’re pleased to add to our attacking options from the central midfield areas of the pitch.

“Kieran has excellent technical capability and creative skills, priding himself on assisting his teammates. He possesses an ability to glide past players while being able to scan and provide key passes to teammates.  

“While we recognise these skills, Kieran’s recent experiences, helping Scarborough to promotion and performing well against us in last season’s National League North fixtures, he understands the challenges of coming back into full-time football and adding goals to his game.

“I must say that when we met with Kieran and his agent Kiko Rodriguez for the first time, sharing our plans and opening discussions around our style of play and expectations, his football intelligence, honesty and humble personality came across straight away, which I’m sure you, as a supporter, will relate within our new challenges in the National league.

“Undoubtedly, he will benefit from full-time football and fit straight into the club’s DNA, complimenting his teammates and endearing himself to our supporters.”

Welcome to AFC Fylde, Kieran!
