Paston re-signs with Phoenix

10:34 am on 26 December 2008

Goalkeeper Mark Paston has re-signed with the Wellington Phoenix for another season in the A- League football competition.

The deal with the New Zealand international keeper comes after the side's reserve keeper Glen Moss announced recenly he'll join the Melbourne Victory next year.

Having recovered from a rib injury that kept him out of the Phoenix's previous two matches, a draw with Perth Glory and last weekend's 1-1 win over the Central Coast Mariners, Paston is fit for this weekend's match against the Queensland Roar in Brisbane.

The Phoenix are now searching for another keeper to back up Paston next season.

The re-signing of Paston brings to 14 the number of current Phoenix players contracted by the club for next season and beyond.
