Mickleover Sports have re-signed 24-year-old midfielder Medi Abalimba.
Abalimba, who was previously with Southend United, Derby County and Perpignon, returns to the club where he played last season before health issues curtailed his season.
He has also played for Liverpool on trial, and trialled with both Manchester United and Manchester City. He’s keen to kick start what was seen as a very promising career.
“I’m finally over a major knee issue I picked up in training, and I’m keen and ready to go. I can’t think of a better place to be at this stage than Mickleover. Chairman Don Amott and his committee have been wonderful to me, and as for manager John McGrath, he’s just a superb man to be around. A wonderful coach and a real professional, I’ve already learned a lot from him.”
Chairman Don Amott added; “We’re really chuffed to have Medi back. He fits into our midfield nicely, and is so enthusiastic it’s infectious!”
