Midfielder has made more than 500 appearances during career in England, Scotland


New Indy Eleven signing Nicky Law has recorded more than 75 goals and 100 assists in more than 500 appearances in England and Scotland during his professional career.

INDIANAPOLIS – Indy Eleven announced on Saturday it had signed English veteran Nicky Law, pending league and federation approval. Terms of the contract that bring the midfielder with over 500 appearances in top divisions in England and Scotland to the Circle City will not be announced, per club policy.

Indy will mark the 32-year-old Law’s first stop outside the U.K. in his 15-year career, which saw him on Saturday make his final appearance for Exeter City in England’s SkyBet League Two. In all, Law has notched 76 goals and 111 assists during 562 appearances across seven leagues and 11 official cup and playoff competitions in Europe.

“Nicky Law is a powerful, dynamic midfielder with excellent experience and great quality. Throughout his career he has been a top performer at many high-profile clubs, and he has consistently scored and created goals at all of them,” said Indy Eleven Head Coach Martin Rennie. “We are very happy to have Nicky on the roster, as we believe he can be a very influential player and help control the tempo of the game from midfield.”

Law’s career across the pond began in the English Premier League with four appearances for Sheffield United in its 2006-07 campaign. Loans with Yeovil Town (2007) and twice with Bradford City (2007, 2008-09) saw Law get minutes in EFL League One and League Two prior to a permanent move to League Two’s Rotherham United. For the Millers, Law twice finished as the league’s leader in assists which saw him named to the League Two Team of the Season for 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Law moved to Scotland for the following five seasons, split between Scottish Premiership side Motherwell, where he would appear for the squad in UEFA Champions League play, and legendary side Rangers F.C., which he helped lead back to the Premier League across his three seasons at Ibrox Stadium between 2013 and 2016.

Law then made the move to Bradford City for two more League One campaigns from 2016-2018 before landing at Exeter City. In his two-and-a-half seasons of League Two action for the Grecians, Law collected 20 goals and 18 assists in 105 appearances.
