Zaiful finds home in Eagles’ nest

Geylang International has agreed to sign former Balestier Khalsa skipper Zaiful Nizam for the remainder of the Singapore Premier League season.

Zaiful, who has three caps for Singapore National Team, has made 13 starts for his former club this season with his last game coming against Lion City Sailors on August 8.

The 34-year-old Singaporean joins the keeper set-up that includes Hairul Syirhan and Wayne Chew and is expected to be an integral member of the team with five games remaining in the Singapore Premier League.

“I’m very grateful to Geylang International for giving me the opportunity to continue my professional football career with them. It is a club steeped in history and I look forward to be part of the team and bring glory to the club,” said Zaiful.

Geylang International Head Coach Noor Ali said: “Zaiful is a very experienced goalkeeper and I’m confident he will provide that stability in goal as we shore up our defensive unit. We look forward to having Zaiful as a key member of our squad.”
