AFC Fylde can confirm that James Craigen has joined Scottish Championship side Arbroath on loan for the rest of the season.

Craigen joined the Coasters after his deal at Dunfermline came to an end in the summer, impressing on trial under former manager Dave Challinor.

The versatile midfielder has made eighteen appearances in all competitions, but has found his starts limited.

Craigen has been keen to be playing more regular football, and after talks with boss Jim Bentley, was granted the opportunity back north of the border to do so.

The club wish James all the best back in Scotland for the rest of the season.
