Fylde manager James Rowe said: “Connor is a player we have tracked for some time. We’re delighted to be able to get it over the line early and make a start to our preparations for the upcoming season.

“He is someone who has massive potential and it’s now about fulfilling that potential within a full-time environment.”

Barrett said: “I’m buzzing to get back into full-time football. The facilities here are top-tier and the club is set up to take the next step.

“The season at Kettering gave me the fire in my belly to want more and I believe we'll do it.”
