Saints sign defender, Zebras sign forward

St Albans Saints have acted quickly to replace the outgoing George Tsiakalakis, bringing in Ryan Filipovic from Altona City.

Filipovic returns to the NPL after a short stint for State League side Altona City, having previously played for Werribee City and Melbourne Knights.

“[I believe] we can achieve more [and] personally some of the other teams will be in for a surprise when we play them,” Filipovic said of his new side.

“I think most of the boys at the club know what has to be done to help [us] remain in the NPL.”

Filipovic is Kruni Razov’s sixth addition this off-season as Dinamo will be looking to cement its place in Victoria’s top flight.

I’m looking forward to being a part of [the club] and I have to thank Kruni [Razov], Josip [Loncaric] and Jason [Xerri] for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Dinamo family.”

Meanwhile, Moreland Zebras have signed dynamic attacker Nick Niagioran who has most recently had a brief stint this year with relegated side Richmond SC.

Prior to his time at Richmond, Niagioran played for Malvern City upon return to Australia in 2015 after a period in the U.K.

The forward is the third player this off-season to make the switch from Ricmond to Moreland, following the arrival of Javier Marangos and Kaspar Scheiber last month.
