Bond swaps Fylde coast for City life

25th June 2019

Midfielder Andy Bond has today agreed to join the club from Vanarama National League side AFC Fylde.

Bond, 33, boasts a wealth of experience having made over 100 appearances in League One for Colchester United and also playing for a variety of other Football League clubs including Crewe Alexandra, Bristol Rovers, Stevenage, and Crawley Town.

Born in Wigan, Bond – who is an attacking central midfield player - started his professional career as a teenager with Crewe but following his release in 2006 he moved to Conference North club Barrow where he won promotion and the 2010 FA Trophy.

His performances in the Conference Premier caught the eye of former Colchester and York manager John Ward and led to a four-year spell in the third tier of English football with the ‘U's' - during which time he also played on loan for Crewe and Bristol Rovers.

After spells with Chester, Stevenage, Chorley, and Crawley, Bond joined National League side AFC Fylde in June 2016.

A former England C international, he was a key figure for Fylde last season as they reached the National League play-off final and lifted the FA Trophy at Wembley.
