Birkirkara F.C. have opened their acquisition campaign for season 2011-2012 by engaging the services of 21 year old Leighton Grech. He has joined ‘The Stripes’ on a five years contract.

Leighton is a Hibernians FC nursery product and also a championship winner two years ago, but he was loaned out to Vittoriosa Stars last season.

Although Leighton Grech failed to help his team to keep their Premier Leagues status, he was definitely one of the best young players. Last season the Under 21 International score two goals for Winston Muscat’s squad

Meanwhile Birkirkara coach Patrick Curmi and the new committee will hold an important meeting with club captain Michael Galea to persuade him to wear  the Birkirkara shirt next season
