Central Coast Mariners have signed former Northampton Town captain Chris Doig on a two-year deal.
The 28-year old Scottish defender begun his career with Queen of the South before moving to Nottingham Forest.
He then joined the Cobblers on-loan and has been there since 2003.
"Chris comes to the Mariners with some pedigree, I'm sure both his leadership qualities and his football skill will make him an excellent addition to our squad," said Mariners Executive Chairman Lyall Gorman.
"Chris's signing is the first of several before we kick off our A-League season against Melbourne on August 6, and we feel attracting this kind of player is vital in ensuring Central Coast continue to perform the way members and fans deserve.”
