The 34-year-old, who hails from the North East originally, started out with Newcastle United before making his professional breakthrough at Darlington. After spells with Carlisle United and Dublin City, he enjoyed notable stints at Mansfield Town and Rochdale.

Rundle was a Wembley goalscorer in 2008 as he struck a memorable volley in Rochdale’s League Two play-off final defeat to Stockport County. In more recent years, the former Rotherham United loanee has played his football in non-league with clubs including Whitby Town and Jarrow Roofing.

He has featured for Blyth AFC during this pre-season and joint-manager Jon McDonald told media manager Andrew McDonnell for the club’s website: “Adam’s pedigree speaks for itself. He’s amassed more than 300 league appearances.

“His attitude has been first-class in pre-season and he will be an asset for us this season. He has great quality, he’s an intelligent footballer and also humble for someone who has achieved the level he has in the game.”
