Swedish move for ex-Borel striker

FORMER Ernest Borel striker Keith Thompson has signed for a club in Sweden.

The Birmingham-born Thompson, 28, spent two seasons with Borel but found himself out of work when the club folded in June.

Although Kitchee showed an interest in signing Thompson and his older brother, Garry, for next season, talks failed to produce a contract and the pair left the territory.

Thompson recently signed for IF Vasalunds, who are second in the Swedish First Division, and he made his debut on the left side of midfield in a 3-1 away victory.

Older brother Garry, who was released by English Premier League club QPR last season and spent the closing weeks of the campaign in Hong Kong, has signed a month-to-month contract with Cardiff City but has also attracted an offer from Scottish Premier Division side Dundee, now managed by former QPR striker Simon Stainrod.

Meanwhile, Sing Tao striker John Clare continued his return to full fitness with two goals in a 4-0 victory in Foshan, China, yesterday. Sing Tao's other goals came from Lau Chi-yuen and former South China midfielder Chu Yue-tai.

Clare injured a knee playing for Kitchee against Sing Tao in a league game last January and did not play again last season.
