Chris Maxwell

Cambridge United have signed goalkeeper Chris Maxwell on loan from League Two side Fleetwood Town until January.

The 22-year-old joined the Cod Army from Wrexham in the summer of 2012 but did not make a first-team appearance for Fleetwood last season.

He ended the campaign back at the Welsh club, appearing in two Wembley finals for Andy Morrell's Conference outfit.

The Wales Under-21 international won the FA Trophy in March but was on the losing side in May's play-off final.

"In agreeing a long-term loan for Chris, we have a goalkeeper of undoubted ability and a proven track record in this league," Cambridge director of football Jez George told the club website.external-link

"He is highly rated and we are absolutely delighted to have acquired his services at least until the January transfer window."
