Fylde had a slot to fill after the departure of lock Gareth Rawlings back to his former club Longton.

Nelson said: “I am delighted that we have been able to recruit a player of Gareth’s quality and experience.

“I have spoken at length with him about how we approach the game at Fylde and how he would suit our style of play.

“He has been very impressive for Preston Grasshoppers who also have a very positive and successful approach to the game, so he will fit in very well with our squad.”
