Premiereship champions LISRC FC’s preparations for the next season, as well as its international fixture in the CAF champions league is receiving huge attentions from its technical staff under the leadership of veteran coach Frank Jericho Nagbe.
The team’s build-up occasioned the recruitment of former Watanga FC attacking machine Gideon Williams to replace Golden Boot holder Vatalis Sie who is currently playing in the Israeli national league for Hapoel Nazareth Illit.
Gideon Williams recently travelled with the team to Sierra Leone where he participated in an International Youth Tournament, winning the Most Value Player award that impressed club president Mustapha Ragi.
Although the club’s calculation of exporting Patrick Wreh did not work out after he was unable to secure a deal from a tryout in South Africa, LISCR FC still went ahead to sign the former Watanga man.
The departure of Eddie Wulu to newly promoted first Division FC Fassell compared LIRSC FC to recruit defender Alexander Dargbe of NPA Anchors to aid former Mighty Barolle’s Michael Jesaue in the middle.
The club managed to pocket More than a Thousand Dollars from newly promoted first division side FC Fassell during the transaction for Eddie Wulu. Former Mighty Barrolle’s winger Archie Harvey downplayed the offer from the premiership champions because of Monrovia FC’s attractive package.
Defender Emmanuel Tarpeh remains LISCR’s sweeper, and will be in partnership with some of the new defenders expected to join the club. Barolle’s Hali Lahi is said to be a major target for coach Jericho Nagbe before the league kicks off or the close of the transfer windows.
Lone Star’s forward Patrick Wreh and premiership 2009 first phase top goal netter Mohammad Varney remain the club’s point strikers. They will be at the receiving end of Gideon Williams from the attacking session of the midfield.
