AFC Fylde have signed Stevenage’s Alex Reid on loan and forward Lewis Walters.

Striker Reid joins on a 93-day loan. The 23-year-old is a product of Aston Villa’s academy and also spent a season as an apprentice with Walsall before spending a year in Sweden.

Reid represented Ange IF as he partook in the League Football Education’s Player Placement Programme before returning to England for spells with Rushall Olympic, Wrexham, Solihull Moors.

Walters, 23, made 15 appearances for Barrow in the 2017/2018 season whilst on loan from Nottingham Forest, scoring once and assisting four times. The forward was a regular in Nottingham Forest’s U-23 squad after signing in September 2016 following a spell at Leeds United.

He then spent the beginning of 2018-2019 on trial with Carlisle United before joining Guiseley of the National League North, in order to be closer to home having recently had a child. After starting the 2018-2019 season with Guiseley, where he made 11 league appearances, Walters joined the Coasters on a month-long trial.

In his time, Walters has impressed boss Dave Challinor, and has today signed non-contract terms until the end of the season.
