Newly-promoted Marsaxlokk sign Aguirre, Tonna

Marsaxlokk have started their transfer activity as they are seeking to bolster their squad ahead of their first Premier League campaign in a decade.

Led by coach Pablo Doffo, Marsaxlokk have acquired the services of experienced player Leandro Aguirre.

The Argentine defender, 33, played a total of 32 matches for Birkirkara during the 2021/2022 season in all competitions as he registered five assists and three goals as a wingback.

Aguirre brings plenty of experience at the club given his 76 games in the Maltese Premier League in his career.

In fact, Aguirre has established himself as one of the best wingbacks on the island when he arrived at Valletta FC in 2017 and during his three-year spell, he helped the club to the Premier League title among others.

His experience will no doubt prove to be very important at Marsaxlokk who will be looking to try and retain their top-flight status after their impressive promotion last season.

On the other hand, Marsaxlokk have also brought in Ryan Tonna who joins from Valletta on a three-year deal.

Tonna, who is a former U-21 international, spent last season at Marsaxlokk on loan from the Citizens where he played 24 games in both the BOV Challenge and the Izibet FA Trophy.
