DONE DEAL: Macarthur FC sign ex-Watford defender Adrian Mariappa

A-League club Macarthur FC have signed former Watford stopper Adrian Mariappa.

The Jamaica international last played for Championship side Bristol City.

Mariappa spent the majority of his career playing in the English Premier League with Watford, Crystal Palace and Reading.

"When the opportunity to join the Bulls arrived, it was one I couldn't turn down," Mariappa said.

"It's an exciting new challenge for me in my career and that for me is what I thrive off.

"I'm hungry to achieve great things with the club and create new memories with the team and the fans."

Coach Ante Milicic added: "I'm thrilled that the club has been able to secure a player of Adrian's quality and experience.

"Although he has never played A-League before, I'm most certain he will make a seamless adjustment given the career he has had so far."
