Former NRL player Paul Carter has signed a one-year contract with bush footy side Cessnock Goannas.

The Goannas compete in the Newcastle Rugby League competiton and is the junior club of Knights premiership winners Andrew and Matthew Johns.

Carter, who was sacked from Gold Coast, South Sydney and the Sydney Roosters, recently plead guilty to drug supply to former teammate Shaun Kenny-Dowall and is awaiting his sentence on November 29.

Roosters players have been banned from making contact with the troubled NRL player after his most recent incident where he reportedly called police to Blake Ferguson's house telling them he had drugged his children.

He played 40 NRL games and was part of the victorious Roosters team that won the 2017 Auckland Nines tournament.

The 25-year-old is the son of premiership winner Steve Carter, who played 244 games for the Penrith Panthers between 1988 and 2001.

“Cessnock are proud to announce the signing of Paul Carter to the Cessnock Goannas 2018,” the club posted on Facebook.

“Coach Alan Lantry is extremely pleased to have Paul join our club and Cessnock look forward to welcoming Paul into the Black and Gold.”
