BEDLINGTON Terriers have signed former Newcastle United academy product Mark Doninger.

The midfielder has joined after a spell in Iceland with Stjarnan FC.

He previously played for Sligo Rovers, IA Akranes and Blyth Spartans, and comes in to solidify the Terriers midfield.

Doninger, 23, began his career at Newcastle United before moving to Spartans in 2008.

After his spell at Croft Park his next stop was Iceland with IA Akranes before eventually ending up at Stjarnan FC.

Doninger is a centre midfield player and the club believe he will be a fantastic addition to their squad.

But will have to wait for his Terriers debut as he is still awaiting international clearance.

Club chairman Ronan Liddane said: “This is another excellent signing and a player who will fit in well with the philosophy here at Bedlington.

“We are always on the lookout to improve the playing staff, and Doninger is a player we are excited to see but on the red strip of Bedlington.”
