Hibernians and Floriana continued to strengthen their squad with the signing of foreign players.
Hibs secured the services of Dutch midfielder Taki Abdelilah. Abdelilah had already played for the Paolites in the Euro Challenge Cup in 2009 where he also scored a goal in a 2-0 win over Valletta.
Floriana, on the other hand, signed 28-year old English goalkeeper Matthew Towns. Towns played for Macclesfield Town, Prestatyn Town in Wales and then Droylsden.
