Fleetwood Town are pleased to announce Paddy Lane has joined the club from Hyde United for an undisclosed fee.

The young forward is a product of the Academy at Hyde United and broke into their first-team during the 2018/19 season and has since become a fan's favourite, appearing 68 times for the side, scoring 13 goals, and assisting a further seven in all competitions.

The 20-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a deal with the Cod Army until the end of the 2022/23 season, with the club holding an option of a further year. He will join up with Stephen Crainey's Development Squad with immediate effect.

Stephen Crainey, Town's Development Squad Head Coach, said on the move: “He was brought to my attention and when I got close eyes on him in training and from day one, I could see a lot of things in Paddy. In terms of his football, he’s got good knowledge, a good left-foot, good athleticism, and he’s a top player – I can’t wait to see where I can push him to see where he can get to. 

“He’s been a credit to himself since the day he walked into the building as his application has been spot on. In terms of mixing with the group I had late on last season, he’s been different class and hopefully, he can push himself and touch that first team at some point.” 

Welcome to the Cods, Paddy!
