FC SALISBURY UNITED have added Rafael Ramos to their squad from Saints, to bolster the team ahead of their debut season in National Futsal Super League.

Salisbury will be pleased to have him on their side, rather than playing against him, as he scored nine goals against them last season in the two fixtures that both finished 9-9 between Saints & FC Salisbury United.

The 21-year-old forward scored 31 goals last season, finishing second in the rankings behind re-signed England international Luke Ballinger.

The club have also retained Connor Millar, who scored 29 goals last season which means between the three players they scored 101 goals last season, which will give Salisbury plenty of fire power going forward.

Ramos spoke to JournalSport about his move to Salisbury and said: “I choose FC Salisbury United because I think the club is growing really well.

“After playing them a few times in the last two years I just loved the fans atmosphere on match days it just impressed me the love the fans have for FC Salisbury.

“It was an offer I could not refuse playing in the biggest league of futsal in England “It’s going to be a good challenge and I'm ready to test myself and prove I can do it.”

Salisbury will be competing for a top spot in the Super League which would mean a spot in the Champions League the following season, and coach Geoff Boner said he wanted to build a squad that can do this.

He told JournalSport about signing Ramos and said: “Rafa is the type of character who wants to challenge himself at the highest level and FC Salisbury United can provide that platform for him.

“I think a huge signing like this shows the general public just how big a club we have become in such a short space of time.”
