Cape Town - 21-year old South African-born left back, Darren Holden, has signed a two year contract at Scottish Premiership club, Ross County.

The youngster, originally from Krugersdorp, spent the past few years at English club, Hartlepool United, after coming through their development system, but his contract expires at the English club at the end of the month.

Ironically Holden will leave a club that plays at Victoria Park in England, for a club that plays at another Victoria Park in Scotland.

Holden played 61 games for Hartlepool since making his debut four years ago.

However, the defender fell out of favour this past season when new manager, Ronnie Moore, joined the club at the end of 2014.
