Blues land French defender

Tuesday 3rd April 2012

Stranraer have added French defender Zakaria Belkouche from the EduSport Academy to help bolster their ranks as they bid for promotion from the Third Division.

Belkouche is part of a 34-week residential programme based at the Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility which combines educational courses, English Language tuition and daily training with UEFA coaches and he was recommended to Stair boss Keith Knox from his contacts there.

After impressing in training with the Blues and starring in bounce games Knox handed Belkouche a short term deal and he made his debut against Elgin at the weekend.
