ARBROATH have signed experienced defender Chris Innes until the end of the season.

The 35 year old left Inverness Caledonian Thistle at the end of last season and has been without a club since.

But on Wednesday he joined the ranks at Gayfield after manager Paul Sheerin persuaded him to sign on.

The boss had wanted to strengthen in central defence and he has now finally landed a back player.
