Fleetwood Town boss Graham Alexander has moved swiftly to make Minsterman Matty Blair his first summer capture.

The 22-year-old midfielder arrives as a free agent, on a two year deal.

And Alexander hopes he’ll bring a strong work ethic, as well as a superb goalscoring record, to Highbury.

He said: “Matty has quality, pace and scores goals.

“He can play in several different positions across the midfield.

“He’s got boundless energy and a good work ethic.

“He also knows his strengths and weaknesses and plays to them, which is an important thing for a footballer.

“All in all he’s an excellent addition to the squad.”
