Craig Mahon Signs on Loan

AFC Fylde have signed Chester FC's attacking winger Craig Mahon on loan until the end of the month.

Challinor said of his new aquisition: I'm delighted to have been able to bring Craig to the club on an initial months loan.  I have actively been trying to strengthen in areas where I believe we've been a little bit short and Craig is a great addition.

"He's someone I've seen quite a bit of in the recent past due to the previous couple of years he spent at Vauxhall Motors which, location wise, is very close to my home.  He was excellent for them over two seasons and deservedly got a move to Chester in the Summer.

"Unfortunately for him, things haven't gone well there in terms of results and he has suffered due to them wanting to be more robust and defensively solid.  He will fit into our style really well, he's a very good footballer, can play in a number of positions and will certainly give us that extra bit of guile and creativity in the final third."

Born in Dublin, Mahon had spells at Wigan Athletic and Accrington Stanley before making 133 appearances for Vauxhall Motors, being named player of the year in the 2012/13 season and subsequently signed for Chester in May.

Challinor added: "I want him to come here, play with a freedom and enjoy his football for the next month.  We'll reassess things after that and have a chat regarding his thoughts and how his situation stands at Chester."

Mahon is set to make his debut for The Coasters in Saturday's home tie with Buxton.
