Malta international defender Luke Tabone has signed for Welsh top-flight team Haverfordwest County AFC, the club announced on Friday.
The former Gzira United player joins Haverfordwest County on a two-year deal after playing for the Maroons for the past two seasons.
In a statement, Haverfordwest County manager Tony Pennock said Tabone had been a ‘major target’ for the club.
“We’re extremely pleased to get this deal finalised,” the statement read.
“Luke has been a major target for some time. His experience will not only benefit us in Europe, but also for a tough Cymru Premier season ahead.
“As with our other signings, he will fit in perfectly with how we want to play as a team.”
Tabone joins the team just in time for their UEFA Conference League qualifier in North Macedonia against Shkendija at the Todor Proeski Arena – a stadium Tabone has recently gotten experience of with the Malta National team in March – on Thursday, with the return leg a week after.
Meanwhile, this move spells another high-profile departure for Gzira after having already parted ways with midfielders Steve Pisani, Nikolai Muscat, and forwards Maxuell Maia and Jefferson.
