Former Swansea City star Stephen Dobbie has joined National League North side AFC Fylde after leaving Queen of the South a club legend.
Dobbie – now 38 – helped Blackpool and Swansea City into the Premier League earlier in his career and was with Queen of the South last season. He leaves Palmerston a legend, having made 268 appearances with 158 goals over multiple spells at the cinch Championship club.
The attacker joins Fylde ahead of the new season, where he will also work as an academy coach. Manager Jim Bentley said: “Stephen has had a fantastic career and from what we have seen and the checks we have made, he still has plenty to offer on the field of play. He has a desire to go into coaching when his playing days are finished.
“We can help him with that transition by welcoming him into our academy set up as a coach. He’s local, has vast experience in the game and he will be very valuable to our club not just within the first team set up but also in his new role in helping our young players develop. I’m sure he will be a big success on and off the pitch for AFC Fylde.”
