This site can reveal that Gilbert Martin know as “il-Fulu” has been acquired by a certain Anthony Gafa’ who is sponsoring Fgura United by buying in cash some key players. Gafa’ is an ex Marsa FC Committee Member.

More news from the Fgura Club as our insiders have informed us that despite having gained promotion to the Second Division with keeper Renald Attard (a Valletta FC and Floriana product) the team is not planning to have Attard in the squad or next season. Attard has played almost all the games with Fgura last season but the team led by coach Degabriele has opted for new keepers.

Second Division side Fgura United are set to complete a deal for striker Gilbert Martin. He is expected to sign his new deal in the next hours after already playing three friendly matches against last season’s third division runners up. Mosta received 22,000 euros for the 28 year old.

Gilbert Martin, a regular starter for Mosta last season, was a surplus to requirement after the arrival of Daniel Bogdanovic and was also unhappy to lose the No 10 jersey to the former Barnsley striker.

Gilbert Martin who also played for Marsa in his career was twice awarded the First Division Player of the year at the Malta Football Awards.

Fgura United were active in this year’s transfer market as they signed experienced players such as Josef Dalli and Robert Adami from Vitttoriosa, goalkeeper Brandon Bartolo from Zebbug, Heathcliff Schembri from St George’s and striker Kieth Darmanin from Lija Athletics.

Wasiu is back with Floriana?

Nigerian striker Akanni-Sunday Wasiu is back in Malta and will start training with his former club Floriana with a view to get a permanent contract.

The 28 year old was a hit with the Greens back in 2009 after he was brought in Malta by Irish Roddy Collins and found the back of the net 7 times till January. He went on to play for Changsha Ginde and Shenyang Dongjin in China.

Meanwhile Floriana Football Club announced that they reached a deal with British investor Stephen Vanghun.

The Boxing promoter will pay the salaries of coach Mark Wright, trainee Alan Lewer and two foreigners for the upcoming season.
