Fleetwood Town have signed out-of-contract Grimsby Town captain Rob Atkinson on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old centre-back, who turned down a new contract with Grimsby, has signed a two-year deal with the big-spending Blue Square Bet Premier side.

Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley told the club's website: "I'm sure Rob will prove to be a very useful acquisition and a first-class player.

"Rob is our seventh signing of the summer and was very high on our list."
