Santa Lucia FC sign former Valletta goalkeeper Formosa, Serbian forward Mrdja

Club also sealed a move for Moracci and Letherby

Former Valletta FC goalkeeper Cain Formosa will continue his career with Santa Lucia FC as the Premier League strugglers have bolstered their squad with four signings ahead of the Premier League restart this weekend.

Formosa, a former Malta U-21 goalkeeper, had started the season with Valletta FC but his contract had been terminated last October for disciplinary reasons and was a free agent.

Santa Lucia were seeking a Maltese goalkeeper following the departure of Matthew Calleja Cremona who reached a deal with the Premier League club to rescind his contract last November.

Negotiations between Formosa and the Santa Lucia officials were successfully concluded this week and the former San Ġwann custodian put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season, with an option of another season.

At Santa Lucia, Formosa will be battling for the number one jersey with Brazilian Celio who has been a regular starter at the club.

Added to that Santa Lucia have bolstered their forward line with the capture of Serbian forward Aleksa Mrdja.

The 24-year-old, who was on the books of Albanian side Flamurtari, had signed a contract till the end of the season, with an option to extend.

Mrdja spent the majority of his career in Serbian football where he donned the colours of Lokomotiva, Sloga Kraljevo, and FK Indjija among others and also had a spell in the Montenegro top flight with Jedinstvo.

Santa Lucia have also confirmed the capture of Santiago Moracci and Daniel Letherby.

The Times of Malta had already reported last month that the Premier League side had agreed terms with former Marsaxlokk winger Moracci as well as Letherby, a Malta U-21 international.

Moracci has agreed a deal until the end of the season while Letherby has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the club.

Meanwhile, Santa Lucia have released Sheldon Mizzi who has now agreed to join Challenge League club Marsa FC.

On the other hand, Jamie Carbone and Matthias Vella have left the club and joined Melita on loan until the end of the season.
