WE are pleased to announce the signing of defender Chris Doig on a one-year deal.
After a successful pre-season with the Mariners the joint Town bosses feel that the 32 year-old has a lot to offer the Mariners defensively. He will also take up a coaching role at the club, taking our reserve games (when arranged) and various parts of training when requested.
Doig started his career with Queen of the South, where he made four appearances before being signed by Nottingham Forest in 1997. Having made 93 appearances for Forest, he was released in 2005.
He joined Northampton Town, who he had previously played for on loan. In his first permanent season with Northampton, Doig won promotion to League One before being released by the club in 2009.
After spells abroad with Central Coast Mariners in Australia and Pelita Jaya in Indonesia, he returned to England with Aldershot Town in 2011. He then moved to York City, with whom he won promotion to League Two after playing in the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final.
