FC OLYMPIQUE 13’S new club owner and manager have expressed their goals for the club in the coming months.

Chairman Sunday Adeleye explained that his aim is to ‘improve the quality and appearance of Gibraltar football on a global scale’.

Meanwhile, new club manager Lewis Fraser’s aim is to get his team into the First Division, having already brought a high standard of player to the club in Robert Montovio (who has played with the Gibraltar National Team), and two Argentinian stars Tomas Scaldaferro and Uriel Papaianni, among others.

Fraser also spoke briefly about looking at younger players in Gibraltar and making the club accessible to all interested in playing football.

The club formed in 2013 after the territory was admitted to UEFA that year.

In their debut season in the Gibraltar Second Division, the team finished in third place and narrowly missed out on promotion.

In July the club was taken over by a new ownership and rebranded, with Fraser completely overhauling the squad and introducing several players from his old club Angels F.C.
