Limerick FC sign two new players

Limerick FC have signed two players with underage international experience as they enter the final stage of games in the Airtricity League Premier Division.

Ireland U-19 international Carel Tiofack is joining the club from the relative obscurity of the Cadiz B team in Spain while Ballynanty’s Jason Hughes will make the step up from junior soccer after he impressed in a series of trial games. Hughes captained the Irish schools team in 2009. Both players are attacking midfielders.

Tiofack – who is born in Cameroon but moved to Ballincollig in Cork at a young age – was on the books at Ipswich Town as a schoolboy.

“Young Carel is someone who we knew about,” said Limerick FC boss Stuart Taylor this week. “We did a number of checks on him over in Spain where he played. We knew he was talented, got him over on trial, persuaded him to come over, have a look at the club and he was at the game on Sunday against Derry and he played in a trial game on Monday.

“Going to be a big addition to the club, certainly going to please the supporters. He has a lot of quality on the ball and he’s certainly got something different to what we have already and we’re looking to get that final pass.
