Webber, 31, joins the club as a free agent after leaving Doncaster this summer and has been training with the Reds throughout pre-season.

The former Sheffield United and Leeds striker will be reunited with Stanley boss James Beattie, whom he once partnered in the Blades' attack.

"First and foremost since I've been here I've enjoyed it," said Webber. "That's a major factor in me being here. There are a good set of lads here and I'm excited to play for the boss.

"I think that good things are happening here, the DNA of the club seems to be on the up and I'm excited to be part of it.

"I played with James when we were strike partners at Sheffield United so there's a lot of history and he is a friend of mine. That's where the initial contact came from.

"I've been a little while out of football for one reason or another and it's ideal for me to come back in, get my form back and enjoy my football again."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
