Former Bellurgan United midfielder joins League of Ireland First Division strugglers

Christian Lotefa played in the NEFL for Bellurgan United this season, but has now joined Athlone Town.

Midfielder Christian Lotefa has left Bellurgan United to sign for League of Ireland First Division strugglers Athlone Town.

The former Cabinteely player, who is a native of Congo, was an integral member of Jason McConville's side in recent months as they held their place in the interim NEFL Premier Division campaign. They also reached the Tully Cup quarter-final, losing to Newfoundwell.

He joins the troubled Midlands club who have finished at the foot of the League of Ireland pyramid for the last three years and failed to end a season higher than fifth since being relegated from the Premier Division in 2014.
