Fyfe signs with Adelaide

Adelaide United FC has secured the services of current Sydney FC defender Iain Fyfe from next season.

The 26-year old defender penned a three year contract with the Reds which sees him officially start at the club on April 1, 2009.

United Football Director Michael Petrillo said that Fyfe’s would bring experience and versatility to the Adelaide squad.

“To be able to pick up a player who has played in a winning championship side with Sydney FC, had Asian Champions League experience, and still be only 26 years of age, was definitely one of the reasons we signed him,” Petrillo said.

“He is a proven winner, a terrific young man and there is no doubt he will be a great addition to our defence. He will bring experience, versatility and a great character to our playing group.

“We’re looking forward to having Iain join us in April and welcoming home another talented South Australian to Adelaide United Football Club.”

Fyfe grew up playing in Adelaide at local club Salisbury United before joining Adelaide City in the old NSL. He was a member of Sydney FC’s 2005/06 championship winning squad and has played a total of 79 A-League appearances during his stint at Sydney FC.
