A youth player with Cardiff City, the Welshman spent two years at Fulham and later played for Torquay before making more than 100 appearances in the Conference for Forest Green Rovers.

He moved on to York City and initially joined Luton on loan before making the move permanent and reaching two play-off finals.

Lawless was part of the Hatters squad which won the title in 2013/14 and spent a season in League 2 with Yeovil Town.

He picked up another championship medal under Justin Edinburgh at Orient last season.

Lawless follows Ayo Obileye, Aswad Thomas and Gozie Ugwu in joining Fleet for the 2019/20 campaign.
