De Silva Finds New Home at Njardvik
Njardvik FC in the Icelandic second division unveil new signing Sean de Silva
Can Bou Play Founder Sean De Silva has found a new home at Njardvik FC in the Icelandic second division for the 2020 season.
De Silva makes the move from Haukar FC who he impressed for last season and is really looking forward to this new adventure after the COVID-19 pandemic delays.
"Feels great to be with this new club," said de Silva."Everyone here, from the staff, backroom and the players have all made me feel really welcomed and there is a good vibe in the team."
Njardvik FC kicked off the regular season with a 3-1 victory over Volsungar on Saturday 20 June with de Silva immediately making his mark with two assists. The Trinidad and Tobago midfielder is elated to finally be able to be back on the pitch after being largely isolated in his apartment during the COVID-19 lockdown.
"It's been a really difficult couple of months being here during the pandemic and being away from my family and friends," confessed de Silva.
"I don't really want to talk a lot about the negatives but it has been tough mentally."
"But getting back on the pitch and playing games competitively has lifted my spirits and put me into a much better mind frame."
Njardvik FC along with Haukar FC were relegated to the second division at the end of the 2019 season and de Silva is keen to help his new team bounce right back and be promoted. Also featured in the division is Kordrengir, which Can Bou play founders Yohance Marshall and Keston George led to promotion last season but both have since left the club in 2020.
