Fleetwood have sold club captain Nathan Pond to National League side Salford.

The club’s website has confirmed that they are letting the player leave to join Salford after 15 years at Fleetwood Town.

Salford appointed the former manager of the Cod Army, Graham Alexander, as their new boss and he has moved to resign his former club captain for his new team.

The defender played nearly 500 games for Fleetwood and has helped the club get to where they are in League 1.

Pond scored a total of 51 goals for the club during his time there and has been a key player for the side.

He spent a brief spell on loan at Grimsby but then came back to Fleetwood and became an important player for the club.

In addition, Pond became club captain back in 2015 and holds the record for the most appearances made by any player for Fleetwood – so he truly has cemented himself as a club legend during his time with them.

However, the 33-year old has decided that now is the time to move clubs and has decided to make Salford his next club. The deal sees Pond sign on to Salford for two seasons, as the club bid to try and get into the Football League.

Pond becomes the second player to sign for Salford since new boss Graham Alexander took over at the Peninsula Stadium club, with Danny Whitehead having also agreed terms to make the move from Macclesfield to Salford after Alexander was appointed as the manager.
