Ex-Liverpool, Millwall keeper Warner joins Wellington Phoenix
Wellington Phoenix head coach Ricki Herbert ticked off another box when he confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Tony Warner.
The Liverpool-born custodian comes to New Zealand with a wealth of experience under his belt and will provide competition for incumbent Mark Paston.
The 1.93m Warner joined Liverpool as a 16-year-old and spent nine years at the club but never made a first team appearance.
Last season he made 25 appearances for Tranmere Rovers.
Herbert said he was delighted to sign such an experienced goalkeeper and looked forward to him keeping Paston on his toes.
"One of the key ingredients that makes a club successful is competition for places," Herbert said.
"This season we are going to have some healthy battles for first team spots throughout the team.
"It will be good for Mark [Paston] to have someone so experienced to work with in training as well as keeping him on his toes.
"Mark is going really well now that he is over that bad run of injuries and the competition from Tony will do him no harm."
