Kaya Futbol Club would like to announce more good news as the Kaya family grows bigger with the signing of Australian goalkeeper Matthew Acton, Ghanaian goalkeeper Isaac Annan, and Senegalese striker Robert Lopez Mendy.
Matthew Acton, from Thuringowa Central, Australia, played for Olympic FC before joining Kaya. He previously played for Yangon United in the Myanmar National League and became the first Australian goalkeeper to join the league. Upon his arrival, he started in all 14 of his league matches, keeping five clean sheets, and eventually helped Yangon finish second in the league. Prior to playing overseas, he spent seven years with A-League team Brisbane Roar, where he returned for a brief spell before joining Olympic FC in 2015. He also represented Australia at the U20 level.
Isaac Annan, from Accra, Ghana, established and developed his football career in Ghana, where he played for Unistar Soccer Academy, Pure Joy FC, and Charity FC, respectively. He also got called up to Ghana’s U20 team in 2010. He’s a fearless and formidable shot stopper, and we hope he can establish himself at Kaya as well.
Robert Lopez Mendy, from Dakar, Senegal, previously played for Green Archers United FC. Having scored for the Archers on numerous occasions, he helped the team reach its goals through his goal-scoring exploits and fantastic performances in the United Football League (UFL).
We would like to give a warm welcome to our new signings, who are a testament to our intentions to strengthen our squad, continue where we left off from last season, and start the year with hope and promise.
