Burton Albion take Warnock on one-year contract

Burton Albion have signed Stephen Warnock on a one-year contract, following his departure from Wigan Athletic at the end of last season.

The experienced fullback played in all but one of the Latics’ games in the Championship last term, but was unable to prevent them from suffering relegation to League One.

Warnock, though, will remain in the second-tier of English football next season after he signed a one-year contract at the Pirelli Stadium club on Monday afternoon.

“Stephen is a good, experienced full-back,” Nigel Clough told the official club website. “He will bring all the qualities – it’s ideal and we think he will complement the defenders that we’ve already got.”

Warnock began his career at Liverpool, and has also had spells at Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa, Leeds United, Derby County and Wigan, as well as loan stints at Bradford City, Coventry City and Bolton Wanderers. The 35-year-old has two international caps for England, and was an unused member of Fabio Capello’s squad at the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa.
