The country’s O-League rep, Solomon Warriors FC is closing in to strike a deal in securing a goalkeeper from Europe to guard its goal mouth during the league’s campaign.


Club president Hon. Bodo Dettke revealed this to Star Sports yesterday saying they are making progressive negotiation to sign a goalkeeper from England.

“We are sure 90 percent with our negotiations that everything should be finalized with understanding.”

Like other clubs to participate in the forthcoming O-league in getting imported players, Warriors too has to step up its effort for this competition, he explained.

Not only in England but the Warriors management has also made effort to snatch Erakor Golden Star’s captain, Brian Kaltak who was first said to have signed with Hekari FC of Papua New Guinea.

Brian Kaltak however said that he never signed any contract to date with any clubs yet and he is yet to decide.

“I will talk to my clubs management and those clubs interested first before I will make any decision.

“But for now I enjoy playing football and thus it will be best for me to consider my decision on grounds that will help build my career in football to newer heights,” said young Kaltak.

Mr Kaltak is understood being eyed by Hekari FC, Amicale FC and the Solomon Warriors.

Erakor club president Charles Carlot said the club executive will respect the decision made by the individual player what is best for him thus will only provide support towards his choice.

Meanwhile, Solomon Warriors have won their second series of match yesterday 5 goals to 2 with the final third series to be played this Friday.

The Warriors management has indicated that if the turnout this Friday is impressive enough then there will be another international club friendly in two weeks’ time with a team from either Fiji or Australia.
