Herbert signs on with Phoenix

12:17 pm on 12 November 2011

Ricki Herbert's signed a new contract with the Wellington Phoenix that could see him remain at the A-League football club for the next four years.

Herbert, who has been with the Phoenix from the start, has signed for a further two years with an option for another two years on "football-related matters".

While the players had signed contracts with the new consortium which took over the club in August following the financial demise of previous club owner Terry Serepisos, Herbert had yet to sign up.

The Phoenix have won just one of their five matches so far this season and play the competition leaders and defending champions the Roar in Brisbane on Sunday.
