Adelaide United is excited to officially announce Mark Ochieng and Ben Warland have both been re-signed by the Club and will again be part of the Reds’ Hyundai A-League campaign. 

19-year-old, Ochieng, and 20-year-old, Warland, have put pen to paper on one-year contracts until the end of 2016/17 season. 

With the recent signing of Danny Choi as an injury replacement for Marcelo Carrusca, United’s total squad list is at 23 players. 

Ochieng and Warland will both retain their shirt numbers, 12 and 15, with Choi opting to take the No. 45 jersey. 

Meanwhile, Spanish striker, Sergi Guardiola will wear the No. 9 jersey, after Sergio Cirio chose to change to former Reds’ striker, Bruce Djite’s, No. 11 shirt – Cirio’s favourite number. 

Australian midfielder, James Holland, has chosen the No. 25 shirt having experienced plenty of success wearing it in the past, including being crowned a Hyundai A-League Champion with the Newcastle Jets in 2007/08 and also winning the Austrian Bundesliga with Austria Wien in 2012/13.
