Pablo Asensio made his first signings of the Summer on Tuesday as he begins to build his squad ahead of the 16/17 season.
The first signing came in the form of Sergio Torres, who signed a deal with The Hawks to lead the team as Captain in the new season and returning for his 3rd season at The Enclosed Ground.
The second signing is a new face for The Hawks. Ex-Albanian U21 International Defender Albi Llenga joins after playing spells in Greece and Albania. Albi (pictured below with Pablo Asensio) moved from Albania to Greece at the age of 5 and began playing professionally at the age of 18 for Greek Second Division side Ethnikos FC and then had spells for TuS Koblenz in Germany and then with KF Vllaznia, KF Apolonia Fier and KF Bylis, all in the Albanian Superliga.
Albi also played for GS Ilioupolis, Asteras Magoula, Aiolikos FC and most recently with Kalamata FC, all in Greece. When asked why he joined The Hawks, he said “I took the decision (to join) because of Pablo, we have the same mentality. I’ve heard good things about Whitehawk and I cannot wait to start”. He added “I will give 100% for the club to help achieve their expectations”.
More squad news is expected in the coming days as manager Pablo Asensio prepares for his First full season as Hawks boss.
