Former Preston North End midfielder Ryan Croasdale is hoping his move to AFC Fylde will eventually lead to a return to the Football League.
The Coasters smashed all of their previous transfer records on Friday when they paid £50,000 to sign the 23-year-old from Kidderminster Harriers on a three-year deal. The current England C captain, Croasdale began his career with PNE – making one first team appearance in the Football League Trophy against Oldham in 2013 before joining Sheffield Wednesday.
Things didn’t work out at Hillsborough and he switched to Kidderminster, captaining the side as they reached the play-offs for a second consecutive season.
“The transfer fee doesn’t put me under pressure, it fills me with confidence,” said Croasdale, who is from Lancaster. “Football is all about confidence and I want to embrace that and hopefully perform.
“Promotion is the aim this year. The club has had two terrific seasons, getting promoted from the National League North and then going so close last year.”
