Hamrun Spartans have significantly bolstered their squad in their bid to retain the Premier League title this coming season.
Throughout the past week, the Club announced two major signings, including Malta international goalkeeper Henry Bonello and Nigerian striker Franklin Sasere.
Henry Bonello joins the Spartans following his four-season stay at Valletta, where he took his Premier League tally to five championships. He also defended the National Team’s goalposts 27 times playing a crucial role in the recent string of positive results registered by the Maltese team.
Bonello is joined by Nigerian striker Franklin Sasere who will be returning with the Malta Champions on loan for a second successive season. He joins the team from Swiss Super League squad FC Lugano. Sasere was the most profilic player in the title-winning Spartans squad, netting 16 goals in 23 matches, an impressive contribution during his first season in Malta.
Although the 23-year old striker was in the upcoming season’s plans for the Swiss side, having already featured in the team’s pre-season friendlies, even scoring a hat-trick in one of the matches, Hamrun Spartans continued with their efforts to lure the strong striker back to Malta.
The two signings join Estonian international defender Nikita Baranov who was the first post-season signing for the Spartans.
