Vanuatu international Lency Philip is set to join Australian side Gawler Eagles FC, leaving behind his former club Galaxy FC. The 25-year-old defender, who has represented his country three times internationally, will be joining the same team as former Galaxy and national team member Jeffrey Tasso. Eagles play in the South Australia State League 2.

We have brought Lency to the club from (Espiritu) Santo and Lency has become an important member of the squad ever since. We thank him for the his contribution to the success of the club over the years and wish him the very with his new club.”

During his time at Galaxy, he established himself as one of the top defenders in Vanuatu’s top-flight league, and caught the attention of the Gawler Eagles FC.
The move to Australia will offer Philip a chance to challenge himself against a higher level of competition, and to further develop his skills as a defender. He will be joining a Gawler Eagles FC side that is looking to improve on their performance from the previous season and Phillip will be hoping to make an impact and help the team achieve their goals.
With his experience playing for both club and country, Philip will be a valuable addition to the Gawler Eagles FC squad. His defensive abilities and work rate will help to bolster the team’s backline and provide them with a solid foundation to build on.
Overall, this move represents an exciting opportunity for Lency Philip to take his career to the next level, and for Gawler Eagles FC to add a talented and experienced player to their ranks.
