Seyfo Soley is back in action for Doxa in Cyprus league

Feb 3, 2011, 1:22 PM

Former Gambian international Seyfo Soley has finally made his much awaited debut in Cyprus with Doxa Katokopias.

The Gambia international played 75 minutes of the Doxa’s home tie against Paralimni in last weekend’s Cypriot super league but his contribution couldn’t save the troubled club from losing to the visitors by a lone goal, thus still rooted at the bottom of the table.

Seyfo spent the last three months in Cyprus, initially with Apollon Limassol before Doxa’s claimed his signature.

Seyfo, 31, parted company with Preston North End in June 2007 whilst he was captain of the Gambia national team.

Soley made his debut for Preston North End in the 2007 fifth round of the FA Cup, which Preston lost 1-3 to Manchester City.

In June 2007, it was revealed that he had left the club after rejecting the club’s offer of a new contract.

On 26 July 2008 Soley played as a trialist for Motherwell of the Scottish premier league in the second half of their 4-0 friendly win over Bradford City.

Soley was given a trial with Norwich City in the 2008-09 season under former Westham and Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder but was not offered a permanent deal.

The 30-year-old midfielder made another move on his international journey by joining the Cyprus premier tier side Apollon Limassol. 

Seyfo started his playing career with Hawks FC before moving to Belgium to join St Niklaas, K.S.C. Lokeren whilst current national team coach Paul put was at the helm and made him club captain, Oost-Vlaanderen, Al-Hilal and K.R.C. Genk, prior to signing for Preston in January 2007.
