EXPERIENCED centre-half, John Hardiker, has signed for Northwich Victoria after leaving Evo-Stik Division One North side Radcliffe Borough.
John, 29, arrives with a wealth of know-how from the many previous clubs he has to his name.
After starting as a product of Morecambe's youth system, where he made his debut at the age of 16, he joined Stockport for a six figure fee in 2002 and played over 100 times for County before spending a spell with Bury and returning to Morecambe.
Hardiker departed from Morecambe in 2006 and spent some time at Fleetwood before becoming captain at Forest Green.
The end of his stint at New Lawn prompted the much travelled man to return to the North in 2009 to sign for Stalybridge, he then saught pastures new at Droylsden in 2010 for an undisclosed fee.
In January 2012, John left the Bloods and signed for Radcliffe Borough, his most recent club.
The signing is Andy Mutch's fourth of a summer, which has seen nine players depart the crisis hit Vics.
