Adam, aged 28, is also a striker and has been in non-League football for over ten years.
Following the departure of Jason Gilchrist at the end of November, player-manager Tom Greaves has been in search of another striker to bolster FC United’s attack.
He was introduced to Jason’s older brother Adam and after a few weeks training with the club, he has now registered with FC United and will be available for selection away at Salford City today.
Adam Gilchrist has played for the likes of Radcliffe Borough, St Helens Town, Marine AFC, Ashton Athletic and, most recently, Burscough.
He is a striker but can comfortably play as an attacking player on either side or in the middle. He is also a UEFA B qualified coach.
