The 2004 Pro League Champions National Quarries North East Stars completed two major signings—and their attacking force may have a totally different out look when they take the field against San Juan Jabloteh on Friday in the Toyota Classic.
Strikers Gary Glasgow and Kevin Jeffrey both signed on the dotted line for the Sangre Grande Stars—Glasgow who has not been able to make the cut in Leo Beenhakker’s Warriors was transferred from Chinese club Gaungzhou FC, while Kevin Jeffries was brought from American A League’s Richmond Kickers.
North East have been pursuing the two strikers during the last transfer window but was unable to close the deals before the closing of the window, September 14.
The move was held up after the Stars were unable to get the International Transfer Clearance in time.
Club Owner Darryl Mahabir, said he is excited about the prospect of the two former national players joining the ranks, he told ttproleague.com. “I am extremely happy with the signings—we have been struggling this season to score goals on a consistent basis—I am hoping with both Glasgow and Jeffries coming to partner Nixon and Anthony wolfe—we can be a serious attacking force to be reckoned with.”
Glasgow and Jeffries should be able to be in time to take their place in the squad for the all important Toyota Classic quarter final clash against the in form CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Friday 21.
