One Mifsud after another

Malta's Sliema Wanderers FC have signed striker Adrian Mifsud on a three-year contract from Hibernians FC.

Maltese champions Sliema Wanderers FC have signed international striker Adrian Mifsud on a three-year contract from Hibernians FC.

'A challenge'
Mifsud replaces namesake Michael Mifsud, who left Sliema last week to join Norwegian side Lillestrøm SK. "Replacing Michael Mifsud, who is without doubt Malta's best striker, is a challenge in itself," the 29-year-old told uefa.com. "But I am pleased to be joining Sliema. I got the chance and took it with both hands."

Leading marksman
With Hibernians, Mifsud played 111 Premier League matches, scoring 79 goals. He was the division's joint-top scorer in 2002/03, having helped Hibernians win the title the previous season when he was voted Malta's Footballer of the Year.

Bajada move
Meanwhile, Msida St. Joseph FC have announced the signing of Maltese international midfield player Roderick Bajada from relegated Hamrun Spartans FC. The 21-year-old's arrival is the latest coup for the club's ambitious Italian president Roberto Goveani.
