Spagnuolo delighted at clinching contract with North Queensland

Adelaide United's Jason Spagnuolo is delighted to have found a new club after signing a two-year deal with North Queensland Fury. In an exclusive with tribalfootball.com, the 25-year old winger explained his move to the new franchise as well as the prospect of bowing out of Hindmarsh Stadium as a championship player.

"I am excited about going to North Queensland and making a fresh start," Spagnuolo said.

"It was a slight risk to give up the last year of my contract at Adelaide and there was a few weeks of uncertainty and nervousness but my agent, Lou Sticca, assured me that my performances in the A-League over time were enough to have other clubs interested.

"The Fury were interested and the influence of coach Ian Ferguson and the way he made me feel wanted were major factors for choosing to go north rather than joining other clubs.

"Despite the fact I won't be an Adelaide player next year, I still am now and even though I haven't played much this season I am determined to win a place in the first team and help the Reds (who are top of the table) win the championship and leave as an A-League champion."
