AFC Fylde have completed the loan signing of striker Andy Mangan from Tranmere Rovers. The 31-year-old has joined the Coasters until December 23rd.

Coasters boss Dave Challinor believes the signing has come at the perfect time: “We needed options in forward areas because we are a little short at the moment. It’s one that’s been in the pipeline for a while now and it has come at a good time with Jack Muldoon’s suspension.

“I’ve known him for a long time and he was a teammate of mine many moons ago at Bury. His younger bother, Sam, is here too.

“I’ve kept in touch with him as he was with my old club Tranmere and he is someone I would class as a friend. He is a character as well as a good footballer and goalscorer.

“His experience will really help out on the pitch and in the changing room too.”
