Paston signs with Phoenix

6:03 am on 18 May 2012

The Wellington Phoenix has re-signed goalkeeper Mark Paston for the next A-League season.

The All Whites custodian, who had an outstanding season, joins fellow New Zealand international Glen Moss, signed from Gold Coast United, to give the Phoenix arguably the strongest goalkeeping line-up in the competition.

Paston says he and Moss have been vying for the goalkeeping spot at the club before, as well as with the All Whites, and it'll be good to have such strong opposition for the position.

The pair will get a chance to size each other up when they go into the All Whites camp on Saturday to prepare for games against Honduras and El Salvador as a lead in to the OFC World Cup qualifying tournament in the Solomon Islands.
