Veteran South Coast goalkeeper Adam Federici is ready to make his mark in the A-League next season.
The Huskisson product has joined newcomers Macarthur Bulls FC, agreeing to a two-year deal announced on Thursday.
Federici adds plenty of experience to the Bulls line-up. The 35-year-old, who was released by Stoke City earlier this month, has played in more than 280 games for various English Premier and Championship League clubs.
He has also represented the Socceroos in 16 games, including at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
"Adam's knowledge and experience in the top European leagues will be invaluable to our squad," Bulls head coach Ante Milicic said.
"The opportunity to strengthen our roster with someone of Adam's ability and professionalism, doesn't come around often."
Federici said he was excited for the challenge.
"Football has provided me with many fantastic opportunities around the world. To be able to come back to Australia and play football, not only at a start-up club, but also only 90 minutes from where I grew up is something I could not pass on," he said.
"The Macarthur region has always had a strong football following and I'm looking forward to seeing the passion from our fans in our debut season."
Federici is the third player to join the Macarthur club, alongside former Socceroo Tommy Oar and Olyroos midfielder Denis Genreau.
