The Coasters boss told the club website: “Danny is a fantastic pro and a top player, so we are really pleased to have agreed terms. He is very low maintenance and gives us a high output week after week, in both training and games.

“He has good experience and knowledge of the game, knows the club inside out and is a player who is well-respected by all at AFC Fylde. We feel as though Danny could easily play up at the next level or two and his ambition matches ours."

Before his two-and-a-half years at Bloomfield Road, Philliskirk made more than 100 EFL appearances for hometown club Oldham Athletic.
