Hyde United have confirmed the signing of experienced defender Jordan Fagbola.

A former Stockport County player, Fagbola joins the club having played for FC United of Manchester last season.

Fagbola becomes the latest summer signing at Ewen Fields ahead of the Tigers’ new season in the Evo-Stik Premier Division.

Darren Kelly’s side will be competing at step seven for the first time in two years, after claiming promotion from the Evo-Stik First Division North last season.

The Tigers enjoyed a memorable campaign, which included an FA Cup first round appearance against MK Dons on BBC Two.

Following promotion, a long list of players have opted to stay at Ewen Fields for the forthcoming season, although last season’s captain, Paddy Miller, has left the club to join Tadcaster Albion.

Miller cited travel issues as a reason for doing so.
