Pembroke Athleta are poised to complete the signing of striker Roland John Emeka from Senglea.

The Nigerian striker was in top form for the Cottonera side as he found the back of the net 19 times last season.

The portal contacted the Pembroke coach Jacque Scerri, and the 33 year old confirmed the Nigerian will start training with his new team mates this week ‘‘A deal has now been agreed between the player’s agent and the club, the 24-year-old striker is expected to sign a one year contract with an option for a further year for Pembroke’’

The novice coach has already brought in seven new players but believes that he still has to improve the quality of the side ahead of their return to the BOV Second Division. Pembroke coach JacqueScerri is looking to add his top target “as quickly as possible” to improve the quality of the options upfront.

The Reds were promoted back to the second division in style after a one sided campaign in the third division, and have already brought in Michael Ellul, Thomas Sullivan, Kurt Coleiro, Craig Debattista, Neville Galea, Lydon Cilia and Dylan Azzopardi.

    Last year Pembroke invested in players that had experience in higher divisions. I think their signings were meticulously chosen and the committee was proved right when they claimed the championship with just 1 loss. Further more they bowed out of the FA Trophy with an amazing performance against Hibs (5-3).

    So I think that this year they will be eyeing another possible consecutive success, with some new interesting signings.

    Good luck

    And I was made to believe that the club will only use inhouse products. About time the management of this club came to its senses!!!!

    Nahseb its a matter of sour groups for Klikka Athleta. No ambitious team can rely solely on nursery products and it should be a matter of finding the right balance between homegrown players and players from outside the club. Results have proved the Pembroke commitee right so I think its more a case of you coming to your senses rather than the management !!!!
