ROMSEY Town have pulled off a transfer coup by signing Polish goalkeeper Amadeusz Skrzyniarz.

The 21-year-old – known to his new teammates as Aman - has joined from Limanovia Limanowa, who play in the Polish equivalent of League One.

Andy Samuels, manager of Sydenhams One outfit Romsey, said: “Aman has got great ability. He can command his penalty area, he’s quick off his line and has a real presence and assurance about him.

“We will certainly enjoy having a player of that stature here – he will strengthen us a lot.”

Despite his tender age, Skrzyniarz has a wealth of experience in the Polish leagues. He has played for other professional clubs, including Zaglebie Lubin and MKS Kluczbork, and has also represented his country from under-15 through to under-21 level.

“He’s here at Romsey having been recommended to us by a friend of the club,” Samuels explained. “But we still had to show Aman that we’re a side and a club that has aspirations and that his signing would not only help us in the short-term but that we could also help him to further his career in the UK.”

Romsey chairman Ken Jacobs added: “We’re all very pleased to have him here.

“Claire (Crossland, club secretary) has worked very hard with his previous club, the FA, the Polish FA, Aman and even FIFA to get all the required paperwork sorted out.”

Romsey are in league action at Hythe & Dibden on Saturday.
