Hyundai A-League stalwart Nichols bound for NPL Queensland

Former Hyundai A-League Championship winner Mitch Nichols has signed for National Premier Leagues Queensland outfit Gold Coast Knights.

Southport local Nichols will return to the Gold Coast having parted ways with Wellington Phoenix at the beginning of 2019.

The 29-year-old midfielder of 226 Hyundai A-League appearances won the Premiership and Championship double with Brisbane Roar in 2010/11.

He has since played for Melbourne Victory, Cerezo Osaka, Perth Glory, Western Sydney Wanderers and Wellington Phoenix, whom he departed by mutual consent in January.

Gold Coast are second in the NPL Queensland having lost just one of their first six fixtures.
