Cyprus champions hook Henshaw


Northern Cyprus League defending champions, Magusa Turk Gucu have secured the services of fast rising goal machine, Blessing Henshaw.

Henshaw, who was one of the shining lights last season while starring for another lesser Cyprus side, Yenibogazici where he ended as the team’s top scorer with 8 goals and countless assists and many five star performances that caught the eyes of other top teams, got his reward for hard work as he was snapped up by the Mediterranean country’s league defending champions.

Meanwhile, the former Odic of Lagos striker seems to have hit the ground running in his new team as he rewarded the confidence reposed in him by scoring in his very first game for the side and also providing an assist in a pre-season friendly match against Turk Ocak Limassol that ended 3-1 in their favour.

The player, who was a target of many other European sides outside Cyprus, said: “I’m back to Cyprus where I have joined the premier league defending champions, Magusa Turk Gucu in a season loan deal because I am hoping to move to mainstream Europe in no distant time.

“I thank God, everything is working according to plan as I scored in my very first match and provided an assist in a pre-season friendly match against Turk Ocak Limassol which ended 3-1.

“This makes me very happy and relieved because as a striker scoring goals is my responsibility and it gives me a lot of confidence going forward.

“My target is to score many goals here in this club and see how I can help them retain the league and also do well in Europe.”
