Ayman is a striker that marries the classic attributes of a number 9 to the trappings of a modern footballer. Signed from the Egyptian Second Division, Ayman was attracting attention from some big sides in Spain as well. His links to Michel Salgado as winner of the Second Edition of The Victorious made him choose Gibraltar United as the club in which to showcase his talents. A lot of faith has been put on his young shoulders but he has both the skill, work ethic and confidence to be a success on the pitch.

Position: Forward
Age: 19
Squad Number: 10

‘Pipo’ is a trequartista who is at home between the lines in the Number 10 position. Do not let his slight frame deceive as he is a terrier blessed with tremendous skill and guile. Signed up in July 2017 ‘Pipo’ is a player of great potential and with a lot of scope for develpment. He has so far proven to be one of the most skilful players in the squad.

Position: Forward
Age: 22
Squad Number: 11
Appearances: 7
Goals: 2

Position: Forward
Age: 19
Squad Number: 27
Appearances: 9
Goals: 1
Former Club: FC Olympique 13

Tito is well known in local FUTSAL circles but is also a full Under 21 International for Gibraltar having made the cut for the last few squads. A confident and skilfull player Tito has signed from Second Division FC Olympique to challenge for a spot in the team. 100% dedication in preseason has earned him the respect of both team mates and coaching staff and he enters the season full of confidence.


Name: Manuel Roman Salado
Position: Striker

Roman was formed in the youth ranks of Cadiz F.C. and was a regular in their ‘B’ side. He signed for the club in late August 2017 after impressing in a pre-season friendly. Fast, powerful, good in the air, competent with both feet and bags full of confidence means he has all the attributes to succeed in our league. His lightning speed will dazzle defenders.


Name: Habbib Dannoun
Position: Striker
Age: 26
Squad Number: 29
Appearances: 5
Goals: 1
Former Club: Europa Point F.C.

Habbib is a powerhouse of a striker in the mould of your classic English number 9 of yesteryear. Broad shouldered and strong he is good in the air but also very adept with the ball at his feet. He has been signed from Europa Point F.C. as a back up to the first team but his physical presence will be a welcome addition to our attack.



Name: Daniel Ponce de Leon Garcia
Position: Forward
Age: 26
Squad Number: 16
Appearances: 9
