Gamble set to stay in Brunei

Saturday, November 15, 2014
IRISH midfielder Joe Gamble is set to be the second returning import for DPMM FC.
It was announced on the team’s official website that “DPMM extend contract with Joe Gamble”.
He will join Bosnian defender Boris Raspudic as the other foreign player that Brunei’s only professional team will be holding on to.
Midfielder Roberto Alviz, who managed a team-high 18 assists and scored five goals, said that he has not received a contract extension.
DPMM FC had already announced the release of both Singapore League (S-League) topscorer Rodrigo Tosi and Irishman Roy O’Donovan earlier in the week.
It is of no surprise that they are looking to bolster their potency upfront with the website stating that “DPMM FC to trial Hougang striker Geison Moura”.
The Brazilian only spent a year with Hougang United and found the back of the net a total 23 times in all competitions – with 21 of them in the S-League.
It was previously reported that O’Donovan arrived in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, on Monday for trials with Malaysia Premier League side Sabah Rhinos after an invitation by compatriot and Rhinos manager George O’Callaghan, as reported by the Sabah FA and Malaysian daily New Straits Times.
However, it was clarified by the Sabah FA on Wednesday that the player is only in Kota Kinabalu for personal reasons after the completion of the S-League, stating that there wais no professional reason for O’Donovan being in Sabah.
The club will also be looking for someone in between the sticks as they are set to “trial former Manchester City goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen”.
Nielsen is the first Faroese to play in the English Premier League after making his debut for Manchester City on April 24, 2010 as a substitute for Shay Given in the 76th minute against Arsenal.
The 6ft 3in shotstopper made his debut on the international stage for the Faroe Islands in the UEFA European Under-17 Championships back in October 2001.
The 28-year-old is currently serving as the first choice keeper for the Faroe Islands, who are competing in Group F of the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Motherwell of the Scottish Premier League was his last stop where he signed a two-year contract in July last year.
