July 22, 2014
The transfer window, which has been opened for the last month, closed on Monday at midnight and here are most noticeable transfers:
AB Argir have signed Latvian forward Aleksandrs Cekulajevs who seems to have goals in his boots. The 28-year-old has played for the Latvian U21 and U17 teams and scored at both levels. During the last seven years he has played for about 10 different clubs.
In 2006/2007 he score 51 goals in 30 matches for Latvian 2nd tier club FK Auda, and in 2011/2012 he scored 46 goals in 35 matches for Estonian top flight club JK Narva Trans. In 2010/2011 he played for Icelandic club Víkingur where he scored 10 goals in 17 games. Cekulajevs’ lastest club was Maltese club Zejtun Corinthians.
AB have also sined a couple of midfielders from B36 Tórshavn, Sandri Færø and Tóli á Lofti, who both have made a handful of of appearances for B36’s senior team, but where the prospects for immediate first team football were slim at the moment.
In addition to the new acquirements last week, B68 will also be strengthened by some former players returning to action; André Olsen, Remi Langgaard and Oddur Højgaard.
EB/Streymur have announced that midfielder Høgni Madsen, who is studying in Denmark, will not be returning for EB/Streymur during the second half of the season which starts on 27 July.
ÍF Fuglafjørður have announced that they have snapped up defender Jógvan Isaksen who moved to AB Argir from KÍ Klaksvík ahead of the season. Isaksen had not made an appearance since loosing 7-0 to NSÍ Runavík in the 10th round.
Skála have confirmed that they have signed Senegalese forward Ahmed Keita.
It’s also interesting that midfielder Pauli G. Poulsen has come out of retirement, and did feature in both of Skála’s last two matches where they got their first win of the season against KÍ Klaksvík and in the draw against AB Argir.
Skála have also signed 23-year-old offensive midfielder Høgni Midjord from B36 Tórshavn. Midjord announced earlier in the season that he was taking a break from football.

Faroese international and X-top scorer to NSÍ Runavík
NSÍ Runavík have announced that defender/midfielder Pól Jóhannus Justinussen has rejoined them, having parted with EB/Streymur whom he joined ahead of the season.
Also forward Christian Høgni Jacobsen, top scorer in the league multiple times, has made a return to NSÍ, where he will remain to the end of the season, after a couple of years in Denmark. What state the 34-year-old he is in now remains to be seen.
B68 goalkeeper to Danish 2nd tier club Lyngby BK
21-year old B68 goalkeeper, who has been on loan from NSÍ Runavík, has signed for Danish 2nd tier club Lyngby BK where he likely will start as deputy.
Goalkeeper Hans Jørgensen to choose between B68 and Skála
This makes room for the clubless Hans Jørgensen who quit at AB Argir earlier in the season. Jørgensen played for B68 in 2012 and was voted goalkeeper of the year even if B68 were relegated.
Most rumours link Jørgensen to B68, but as Skála’s Russian goalkeeper Mark Ryutin has been on trial in Denmark, Jørgensen might wait for the outcome of that and thus choose Skála, as it was with them that he made his debut in the top flight as a 16-year old keeping a clean sheet in his first four matches before he finally had to concede in the 87th minute against B36 in his 5th match.
However, the more likely choice is still B68 according to most sources.
Update 15. July:
This evening it was indeed confirmed that Jørgensen has joined B68!
Ahmed Keita to Skála
Senegalese forward Ahmed Keita is likely to join Skála for the rest of the season. Keita has this season played for 3rd tier club Giza/Hoyvík after an unconvincing year at AB Argir last season where he scored 4 goals in the season. Keita, who originally joined B68 in 2008, had his best season the following year when he scored 15 goals. He never rediscovered that shape again, and in 2012 he was sidelined through most of the season with injury.
Bogi Løkin back in action at ÍF Fuglafjørður
Midfielder Bogi Løkin, who got injured towards the end of 2012 and just recently has started playing again at lower level in Denmark, has rejoined ÍF Fuglafjørður for the rest of the season where he amongst other will link up with his younger brother Karl again.
Atli Danielsen of KÍ Klaksvík retires
Experienced midfielder/defender Atli Danielsen has retired from football at the highest level. Danielsen who played more than 200 league games in the top flight, played for KÍ for most of his career, except for three years in Denmark and a couple of years for B36 with whom he won the title with in 2011. Danielsen was capped 41 times for the Faroes; his last international being in 2011.
