Fleetwood Town have signed experienced defender Peter Clarke and goalkeeper Matt Gilks on one-year contracts.

The pair, both 37, have played 1,233 games between them, with former Oldham Athletic centre-back Clarke on 748 career appearances while ex-Lincoln City shot-stopper Gilks has played 485.

Former Blackpool and Glasgow Rangers keeper Gilks has also won three caps for Scotland - the last in 2013.

Clarke, who started at Everton in 2001, has played for eight different clubs.

"The influence he's had on the dressing room and the attitude he's shown has been first class," Fleetwood manager Joey Barton said of Clarke.

"We're really pleased to see Matt sign with us for the upcoming season," Barton added.

"He brings an incredible level of experience to the goalkeeping department, and will provide serious competition for the number one shirt along with Alex Cairns and Billy Crellin."
