AFC Fylde have completed the sign of central defender Alex Whitmore, following his departure from Grimsby Town.

Whitmore, 23, was a product of Burnley’s youth system, where he gained first-team experience out on loan at Chester and Gateshead.

Following the experience in the National League, Whitmore made the step up to the Football League with Morecambe on-loan, where he made 43 appearances for The Shrimps.

After a brief spell in League One with Bury, a permanent switch to then League 2 side Chesterfield was the next move for Whitmore, who made 15 appearances, before making a move to Grimsby Town.
