AFC Fylde have bolstered their squad with another two signings after announcing the arrivals of Matty Kosylo joining from Halifax Town and Jordan Willaims from League Two side Rochdale.
Both players have put pen to paper on two year deals at Mill Farm as Dave Challinor looks to build a side fit for promotion next season.
Kosylo 26, has been a key part of the Halifax Town side over the last three years, finding the net 24 times in 76 appearences, where he also helped the Shaymen to promotion from the National League in 2017.
Speaking to the Fylde official club website, Challinor said, “He’s a player who’s attracted a lot of attention at this level, in a team that hasn’t been up the top end – but he’s always been the standout player.”
“Lots of boxes are ticked in terms of scoring goals, creating goals, and running in behind, as well as taking players on.”
“We’re really looking forward to working with him, he can play anywhere across the front or just in behind, and will provide great options and competition for us in those places.”
Meanwhile, Williams joins following the expiration of his contract at Rochdale, where he made 24 appearances in League One this campaign.
Rochdale signed Williams from Barrow back in June 2017, for a fee believed to be in the region of £100k, after a season where he netted 12 goals in 42 appearances for the Bluebirds.
“Jordan had a big jump from this league to League One, and for one reason or another it’s not worked out for him,” added Challinor.
“From our perspective, he’s a strong runner, powerful, and can play across the front three, or do a job as a left-wingback if we wanted to play with a three at the back.”
“He has experience at this level, and has shown in his time before that he’s capable of being very effective, and scoring and creating goals.”
“We’ve been strong in that area before, and we want to continue that – and take the pressure off Rowey if we can by drawing upon others.”
