Covello and Silva Depart for Europe

Two FC Monmouth players will be playing in Europe during the upcoming season.

FC Monmouth midfielder Chase Covello has joined Gibraltarian side FC Bruno’s Magpies. Founded in 2013, the Magpies finished third in Gibraltar’s second division last season.

Covello’s 829 minutes played throughout FC Monmouth’s inaugural season was the highest of the whole squad, and his three goals fell just short of top goalscorer Jordan Saling’s four. The midfielder was a starter in all ten of his appearances for the club. Covello’s partnership with George Akampeke in defensive midfield and consistent performances played a crucial part in FC Monmouth’s 6-3-1 regular season finish.

Also leaving Count Basie Park for Europe is goalkeeper Kevin Silva as he moved to Heart of Midlothian FC.

Heart of Midlothian FC is a storied 144 year old Scottish Premiership team from Edinburgh. Last year "Hearts" finished 6th of the 12 teams in the league.

Kevin Silva was a starter for the first two games of FC Monmouth, after which he went on a successful trial in Scotland which resulted in a contract.

We would like to thank both Chase and Kevin for their efforts with FC Monmouth and wish them the best of luck in Europe!
