FLEETWOOD Town have signed Scottish international midfielder Barry Nicholson, their seventh capture of the summer .

Manager Micky Mellon moved in to sign him after the 33-year-old’s release by Preston North End.

Mellon said: “I’m absolutely delighted to bring in someone with the experience of Barry Nicholson.

“He provides options different to those we already have in the squad and that will be important in our first Football League campaign.

“You can never have enough good players and I’m delighted to have him on board.”

Nicholson travelled with the Town players to Obertraun in Austria for the pre-season training camp and completed the formalities of signing while over there.
