Formerly of Fulham and Rotherham United, Pringle will bring a wealth of Football League experience to Adams’ midfield. He has put pen to paper on a one-year deal and upon the announcement, expressed his delight at his latest move. He said:

“I’m pleased to get it done. It’s been uncertain times for everybody so to get it over the line is a good feeling and I’m pleased to be here.

“I’ve been here for a week now so I’ve met all the lads and I just can’t wait for the season to get going. It’s going to be a bit of a strange one but hopefully the fans can come back in at some point.”
