Fakinos joins Wings after Fleet exit

Midfielder Giannoulis Fakinos has signed for Welling United following his release by Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Ebbsfleet United.

The 23-year-old’s contract was cancelled by mutual consent on Friday, paving the way for him to link up with the high-flying Blue Square Bet South side.

The Greek player has turned out for Olympiacos, Panionios, Ilioupoli and Apollon Smyrni in his home country, and can operate in a defensive or an attacking position in midfield.

Fakinos made 21 appearances for the Fleet, having arrived at Stonebridge Road towards the end of the 2010/11 campaign.

A statement on Ebbsfleet’s official website read:

The registration of Fleet midfielder Giannoulis ‘Cesc’ Fakinos has been cancelled by mutual consent and the player has now joined Welling United.

The club would like to thank Cesc for his professionalism and service during his time with us and wish him all the best for the future.
