DPMM FC eyeing import trio

Friday, February 13, 2015

DPMM FC’s import search is almost over.
The club’s official website yesterday stated they are looking to sign the trio of English forward Craig Fagan, Northern Ireland defender Brian McLean and Brazilian striker Rafael Ramazotti.
The signing of the three will complete the club’s import quota which will include the duo of Irish midfielder Joe Gamble and Bosnian defender Boris Raspudic who were retained from last season.
However, the list will only be official after players put pen to paper in a signing ceremony on Monday.
Fagan, 32, last played for League One (English third-tier) side Gillingham FC before being released at the end of the 2013-14 season.
The forward spent most of his career playing for Hull City from 2005-2007 and from 2008-2010 when they were playing in the English Premier League.
McLean, 29, mostly played in Scotland - having laced up for the likes of Falkirk, Dundee United and Ross County in the top-tier Scottish Premiership.
Ramazotti, 26, is the only one out of the three who has experience playing in Asia.
He played in Brazil early on in his career before heading to Europe (Portugal and Switzerland). His last stop was in Japan where he laced up for J-League Division 3 side Gainare Tottori last year.
DPMM FC released the trio of Singapore League (S-League) topscorer Brazilian striker Rodrigo Tosi, Irish forward Roy O’Donovan and Croatian midfielder Roberto Alviz at the end of last season.
Brunei’s only professional team made no changes to their import line-up last season and finished runners-up in the S-League, champions of the Singapore League Cup and were third in the Singapore Cup – their best season to date.
DPMM FC will kick off their S-League campaign against Harimau Muda at the Hassanal Bolkiah National Stadium in Berakas on March 1.
However, their pre-season has been less than ideal after losing all three friendly games against Thai sides last week.
Ramazott was on the scoresheet in the 4-2 loss to Thai Division 1 side (second-tier) Air Force Central FC in their first match last Wednesday. DPMM FC were then edged 1-0 by another Thai Division 1 side Bangkok FC in their second game on Saturday.
They completed their Thai stint by falling 2-1 to Thailand Premier League outfit Suphanburi FC.
