Alfred Effiong signs for Gzira United

Newly-promoted First Division side Gzira United made their upcoming season intentions clear when they signed former Valletta profilic attacker Alfred Effiong.

Club Secretary Tyrone Demanuele confirmed that all the paperwork was finalised during a meeting with Sharlon Pace, the brains behind the Maroons’ latest successes.

Alfred Effiong made his Premier League debut with St. George’s after joining the club from Kercem Ajax. He went on to play for Hamrun Spartans, Qormi, Marsaxlokk and Valletta.

Other signings who have been confirmed are midfielder Steve Meilak, who joined Gzira Utd on a permanent move from Hamrun Spartans, and former Mqabba left-back Pierre Grima who joined the Maroons to further strenghten the squad.

Tyrone Demanuele said, “There are other finishing touches that need to be done before we are satisfied that the team can seriously challenge for promotion.”
