North Queensland Fury have completed the capture of former England striker Robbie Fowler for their debut A-League season.

A free agent following his recent departure from Blackburn, Fowler had been chased by the fledgling Australian club as well as several teams in China.

But Fury chairman Don Matheson has announced the 33-year-old has signed to play for the club when it joins the league along with Gold Coast United later this year.

Fowler had previously seen a proposed move to Sydney FC fall through in 2007 but the former Liverpool striker confirmed he will be heading Down Under.

"I had nothing but good things to tell my family about the football side of things and the lifestyle opportunities North Queensland can offer us," Fowler said.

"From a football perspective, everything Fury coach Ian Ferguson put on the table and showed me was first class and the enthusiasm and drive of everyone at the club is fantastic.

"It's a huge decision for my family but it's also an opportunity to continue my football career in a truly wonderful part of the world."
