Maltese international joins until end of season after leaving ZNK Split.

Maltese player Maya Lucia will continue the 2023/2024 campaign at ZNK Osijek after signing for her new club on Thursday, the Times of Malta can confirm.

Lucia, formerly of Raiders in Malta, started this season on the books of another Croatian club, ZNK Split.

With Split, Lucia played nine matches and scored one goal, against Gorica, as they sit third on 21 points – trailing leaders Osijek by three points.

Lucia’s last game in Croatia was in November before the championship stopped for the annual winter break before resuming on February 24 with Osijek to face Gorica.

Her reunion with Split is pencilled for a week later.

Osijek are one of Croatia’s best teams in the women’s game, lifting the title on 24 occasions including last season.

They represented their country in this season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League, beating Bosnia-Herzegovina’s Sarajevo 4-0 before losing to Vorskla Poltava of Ukraine 3-0.
