Birkirkara concluded their transfer campaign with the signing of Ryan Fenech from Sliema Wanderers.
A product of Hamrun Spartans, Fenech made his Premier League debut in season 2002/03. He had a short spell on loan with Sliema Wanderers in season 2009/10. Back with the Spartans, he moved to Valletta in the January 2011 transfer window, signing a five-year deal. During that period, he had another short spell on loan with Sliema between January and May 2012.
In summer 2015, Fenech moved to Balzan but spent most of the time on the sidelines due to injuries. He joined Sliema in 2018.
This summer, the Stripes signed Federico Falcone, Edison Luis dos Santos, Enrico Pepe, Roderick Briffa, Miguel Angel Alba, Isaac Ntow, goalkeeper Nicky Vella, Renato Goncalves de Lima, Jeferson De Sousa Ferreira and Yannick Yankam.
Last week, Birkirkara announced that the prohibition imposed by the Complaints Board of the Malta Football Association has been lifted with immediate effect.
