Derry City players returned to training on Friday morning and there was a new face in the ranks as Kenny Shiels unveiled the first of his promised summer signings.
Ben Fisk, a 25-year old Canadian winger has put pen to paper on a deal that initially sees him at the Brandywell until at least the end of the current season.
Fisk has been twice capped by Canada having featured against both Bermuda and Scotland in friendly internationals last year.
He most recently turned out for North American Soccer League side FC Edmonton where he spent two seasons, making 45 league appearances and scoring three goals.
The City boss was happy to have agreed terms with the player who had been training with the club since just before the summer break.
“We’ve been saying for a while that we needed new blood and Ben is the first of our targets to have signed on the dotted line.”
“We’ve been impressed with him in training and he is very versatile as he can play on either wing.”
“I am confident he will add quality to the squad and I hope to have another couple of signings over the coming days” he concluded.
