Liberia’s captain Anthony Laffor made his first start after two matches for SuperSport United on Saturday during the club’s 1-1 encounter with Moroka Swallows FC on Sunday.

SuperSport FC is yet to gain full control of the table as they did last season.  The club is the defending champions of the South African premier league.

Meanwhile, Liberian British-based player David Gbemie has been involved in a few off-season matches with SuperSport United with the aim of signing the Liberian midseason.

David has failed to secure a professional contract since his graduation from English side Bolton Wonderers football academy. Gbemie arrived in South Africa nearly four months ago, seeking signing with the club.

In another development, Israel’s first division chart leader Hapoel Kfar-Saba FC Liberian attacker Patrick Doeplah failed to net home chances provided him during their 1-0 away victory to Maccabi Herzliya FC over the weekend.

The club is topping, with 31th points from 12th league matches. Defender George Baysah also managed to earn another appearance for H.K Saba FC in the league.

Elsewhere, two Liberian players began their league action in Mali with AS Bacaregen FC in a 2-0 away victory. Defensive midfielder Amadu Conneh and striker Melvin Kesman were the latest Liberian players to surface in that country.

Lone star defender Omega Roberts also played in Mali last season, but reports gathered state that Roberts departed Mali for vacation in Ghana and is yet to return.  Defensive midfielder Amadu Conneh moved to Mali from the Gambian first division side, Brakama FC on rewarding deal.

The midfielder had a training session with the national team at their campsite in Bamako before their 2-1 loss to Mali last month. Liberia former Zamalek Youth side striker Alvin Clarke is eyeing a return to local action for a half season.

The attacker left Liberia late 2005 for treatment in Ghana after he sustained injured just a few weeks after he signed with Roots FC. Alvin did not play in any official match for Roots FC before his departure.

While in Ghana, Alvin signed a one year loan deal with Volta Warriors FC in the Ghanaian 1st division league.  The striker moved to North Africa after his term at the Ghanaian side.

Former Lone Star’s Egyptian coach Shawky Hussein Mahmoud Shehab El invited the player for tryout with Zamalek Sporting Club and he made the trial, siging with the team’s junior team.

While in Egypt, Alvin spend some time at Ithahid Alexandria FC where he partnered with the famous Hossam Hassan few times. The player was scouted by AC Malian for tryout, but was not granted Visa, based on the enforced minor laws in Egypt at that time.

With no option, the player accepted another invitation from Al Yarmouk in Jordan.  Alvin began his career with Barcelona FC in Stephen Tolbert Estate before an offer from top clubs in Liberia.
