Adam Dugdale has joined National League Eastleigh after being released by Morecambe.
The 28-year-old central defender has signed a two-year deal with the ambitious Hampshire club after one season with The Shrimps.
Dugdale, whose former clubs include Crewe and Tranmere, had a frustrating, injury-hit campaign at the Globe Arena as Jim Bentley’s side shipped 91 goals in League 2.
Eastleigh manager Chris Todd said: “I’m really pleased to bring Adam in, he is an experienced, imposing centre-half.
“He’s showed great ambition to join the club and he wants to help guide us to success.
“Hopefully together we can achieve our goal of reaching the Football League.”
The Spitfires finished seventh in the National League last season.
