FLEETWOOD Town have made their seventh signing of the summer – Grimsby Town skipper and central defender Rob Atkinson.

Town fought off a number of Football League clubs to obtain his signature.

The 24-year-old has played just under 100 games for Grimsby since 2007.

The defender came through the ranks at Barnsley and had loan spells with Scarborough, Halifax and Rochdale.

Chairman Andy Pilley said: “Rob is an extremely exciting player and I am sure he will prove to be a very useful acquisition and a first class player.”
