January 18, 2010

Wellington Phoenix have re-signed New Zealand international goalkeeper Mark Paston until the end of the next A-League season.

The World Cup custodian, currently out for the Phoenix with a broken leg, joins his understudy Reece Crowther and utility Troy Hearfield in re-signing for the 2010-11 season.

"Were delighted Mark, Reece and Troy have agreed to stay at the Phoenix," Wellington chief executive Tony Pignata said.

"It's all about the club continuing to grow and having stability leading into next season."

The Phoenix have now re-signed a significant core of the current squad for next season including skipper Andrew Durante, New Zealand internationals Leo Bertos, Tim Brown, Ben Sigmund and Tony Lochhead as well as imports Paul Ifill and Chris Greenacre.
