German Joins Ebbsfleet After India Premier League Experience

Ebbsfleet United manager Daryl McMahon has added striker Antonio German to his squad ahead of Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup showdown at East Thurrock United following the confirmation of international clearance today.

The pacey 25-year-old, who can also play out wide or tuck in behind the front line, has joined after a second spell in the Indian Super League with Kerala Blasters.

A former Queens Park Rangers youth, who played more than twenty times for Rangers in the Championship, he also played on loan for Southend United and Yeovil Town before a permanent move to Stockport County in 2011.

He returned to the Football League with spells at Brentford, Gillingham, Aldershot Town and Northampton Town, as well as time in Scotland at Partick Thistle in between his two stays in India.

In India, he played in front of crowds of 70,000 and McMahon, who has cast his eye over German’s qualities over the past couple of weeks in training, is pleased to have got the international clearance through this week and hopes the player’s desire to get game time in England will benefit the Fleet squad.

His signing comes at a key time for McMahon with Darren McQueen having sat out the last few games as well as having to withdraw from the weekend’s England C training camp at Lilleshall.
