As BYC signs additional players
There will be intriguing competition among Barrack Young Controllers players in the upcoming season after the team on Tuesday signed three additional players in continuation of their bid to build up the team for the 2017/2018 Liberian Football Association First Division Championship.
Following several weeks of negotiations with clubs, the ‘Go Blue Boys’ announced the signing of the three new players that include Benin international defender Didier Sossa and defensive midfielder John Jaysay, both from FC Fassel, and left back Carlos Williams from Watanga FC.
Center-back Sossa, defensive-midfielder Jaysay, and left-back Williams all penned a two-year deal with their new club for an undisclosed fee.
The trio, who played momentous roles in their former clubs’ last season campaigns, expressed delight over their new move and promised to play to the best of their abilities to help the team win trophies.
“I had a great season last year and it was because the coach motivated us. Coach Lartey will do the same for me, which is the reason I made the decision to sign for BYC. My goal is to defend BYC and make our fans happy,” John Jaysay said.
Jaysay, 18, made his debut for the National Team after he was named in James Debbah’s lineup against Sierra Leone in an international friendly, and has so far made four appearances for Liberia. For center-back Sossa, he featured for the Soccer Missionaries – Fassel, over the years and made strikers find it difficult to beat him in the air.
The 24-year-old player’s manager, Sardy Browne, was also excited to see his player joining one of Liberia’s top clubs.
Signed to replace former left-back Hilton Varney, Williams said his new move is a challenge and an opportunity for him to book a starting position in the national team.
This brings to eight the number of new players signed by the ‘Go Blue Boys.’ BYC had earlier signed promising right-back Jeremy Saygbe, goalkeeper Alpha Jalloh from Fassel FC, central back Eugene Swen from Keitrace FC, goalkeeper Abdulai Koulibaly from Monrovia Club Breweries and Fallah Sherriff on a free transfer from LISCR FC.
