The former Swansea City forward joins after spending the last five years at Queen of the South.

The 38-year-old helped Swansea, Blackpool and Crystal Palace win promotion to the Premier League.

Joining Fylde on a one-year deal, Dobbie will also take on an academy coaching role at the club.

Manager Jim Bentley told the club’s website:

“Stephen has had a fantastic career, and from what we have seen and the checks we have made, he still has plenty to offer on the field of play.

“He has a desire to go into coaching when his playing days are finished and we can help him with that transition by welcoming him into our academy set-up as a coach.”
