Central Coast Mariners have signed striker Daniel McBreen from North Queensland Fury.

The 32-year old English-born Australian agreed a two-year deal with the Mariners starting next season and the club believes his goalscoring ability will be a valuable asset next season.

“We've got a great goalscoring record this season, we've scored the third most goals of any club in the league, and I think Daniel can come in and help us in front of goal next year as well," said Mariners coach Lawrie McKinna.

"He scored against us as well when we played the Fury at home so we know what he can do. We've got him for two seasons and he's a good lad."

McBreen began his career in 2000 with Newcastle United in the National Soccer League before moving to Romania with FC Universitatea Craiova (2002-2004), Scotland with Falkirk (2004-2006), to England with Scunthorpe United (2006/2008) and York City before returning to Scotland with St Johnstone.

He then found himself back at York City before signing with the North Queensland Fury in February 2009.
