Adam Long 'really pleased' with new team after leaving Doncaster Rovers

Manx defender Adam Long has joined National League side AFC Fylde until the end of the season.

The move comes after he left League Two club Doncaster Rovers by mutual consent last week.

In a statement on the club's website, Long said: "I'm really pleased the deal has gone through and I'm an AFC Fylde player. The club's facilities are outstanding for this level, and the mentality around the squad is a really positive one. 

"I feel I'm a player with a lot to give and I hope that the continued positivity around the football club after a good few results can continue to push us on."

The 23-year-old started his career with St George's before signing with Wigan Athletic in 2017, and has previously spent time on loan at Notts County.

AFC Fylde currently sits 20th in the National League, and will travel to Eastleigh for their next game on Saturday.
