Experienced centre-half and Northern Irish international Rory McArdle joined at the start of the 2021/22 campaign with well over 400 Football League appearances to his name.
The defender has played for the likes of Rochdale, Bradford City, Scunthorpe and Exeter before joining up with Simon Weaver's squad.
While at Bradford City between 2012-2017, the 34-year-old became a key figure for the Bantams, making just short of 200 appearances and featuring in the West Yorkshire side's 2012/13 League Cup Final and their 2013 League Two Play-off Final victory against Northampton Town. He would then go onto win their Player of the Season award for the 2014/15 campaign.
Two seasons later, McArdle moved onto Scunthorpe United, captaining the Iron and making 100 appearances before leaving in 2020 and signing for Exeter for the 2020/21 campaign.
